The Bruins’ plan for this season has never been clear. Just when it seems it is, the other shoe drops.

There will be a time in our lives when we don’t discuss Loui Eriksson every second of every day. Maybe.

Hockey fans have known about Brett Connolly for what feels like forever. Not only was he a top pick in 2010, but he looks like he’s 36 years old.

If you’ve paid any attention to the Bruins this season, you know that their biggest need is: a good, young defenseman.

Loui Eriksson, as we all know because some dumb people don’t think he’s that good a player, is not flashy.

Reading into one regular-season game, however great or terrible, is silly. How about reading into eight?

When the Bruins signed Matt Beleskey on the opening day of free agency, the question wasn’t whether he could be Milan Lucic.

Brad Marchand often downplays his skill level, saying simple plays are all he has in his repertoire.

When the Bruins blew a 3-1 lead in the third period against the Sabres and went on to lose in regulation on Dec.

Back 1999, when David Pastrnak was just 2 years old, Ginuwine asked the world an important question.

In Zdeno Chara’s prime, there weren’t many defensemen who compared to him.

The Bruins are pretty proud of themselves at the All-Star break.

The Bruins played Ryan Spooner as a first-line right wing Saturday and were rewarded handsomely for it against the Blue Jackets.

Loui Eriksson is exactly what he thought he’d be in Boston.

WILMINGTON — Two years ago, a David Pastrnak injury actually proved to be a best-case scenario for the Bruins.

The Bruins had a better roster last season than they do this season.
