It was bound to end sometime.   The Bruins’ seven-game win-streak was the talk of the town while it lasted, but all it took was a regrettable Dennis Seidenberg pass to wipe it away Saturday night in overtime.

WILMINGTON -- In watching the Bruins this season, and especially in recent weeks, there has been one thing on the minds of fans throughout New England. The question of whether the silver object that has long eluded these parts could finally arrive (without a winner from another team bringing it) is a subject that is being entertained more and more.

The Bruins have had their fair share of “big games” this season, and often times they’ve dictated them to their liking with their desired balance of fighting and scoring.

Another game, another two points. That's the way the Bruins' six-game road trip went, and it ended Tuesday with a 1-0 victory over the Senators at Scotiabank Place (recap).

The NFL Scouting Combine is a place for making good impressions, but it’s also the birthplace of annual blunders. While it’s easy to point at foolishly high picks that stem from individual performances, the mysterious slipups of the combine are not limited to just teams.

It’s almost anticlimactic that Tomas Kaberle is now a member of the Bruins. Fans have been customizing jerseys with the Czech blueliner’s name for years now, but they can finally don those sweaters without getting funny looks.

The visa issues that have kept Chris Kelly locked in Scotiabank Place the last three days (mostly kidding) won’t be an issue with the Bruins in Ottawa Friday night, so after a 6-3 win over the Islanders on Thursday (

Say what you will about the 2010-11 Boston Bruins, but consistency is something on which they have been able to pride themselves.

Friday night was ugly for the Bruins, a dead effort in which the Red Wings dominated them to the tune of a 6-1 score. Two nights after their 8-6 beatdown of the Habs on Wednesday, they were outraced and outsmarted in every facet of the game. The lesson? Maybe these guys just shouldn’t have so many statement games.

The Bruins see the Canadiens often enough in both the regular season and the playoffs, but the regular season is starting to show that it would be a shame if the two weren’t brought together once again in mid-April.

Tyler Seguin has been given a lot. The second overall pick in last year's draft, Seguin has been welcomed to the city of Boston with open arms, and viewed by the NHL as one of the league's top talents.

David Krejci knew before the season that in a lineup without Marc Savard, the expectations usually placed on No. 91 might fall on him.

The annual image of an emotional Marc Savard struggling through his words as he talks about his future isn’t easier the second time around, especially when the questions are about whether concussions have doomed his career for the last time.

The Bruins know that they aren’t going to get a Dec. 23 kind of game every night. These days, that line of thinking can also be revised to include Feb. 3.

If there’s one way to start the hardest part of your schedule, that’s it.

Not every game the Bruins play in the second half of the season is going to be like Tuesday’s 3-2 win over the Hurricanes at the RBC Center (recap).

The notion was thrown around earlier in the season half-seriously, but there’s no joking about it these days: Tim Thomas has a good shot at both the Vezina and the Hart Trophy. Seriously.

The first 50 games of the season for the Bruins had plenty of good and plenty of bad, but the team really began to hit its stride over the last month, and as a result, Claude Julien’s club is sitting atop the Northeast Division with a four-point lead.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli spoke with WEEI.com Wednesday night to address the current state of the team as it enters the All-Star break, which areas he might be interested in improving, and a variety of other topics regarding the Black and Gold.

Isn’t it fitting that on the very night that the Bruins receive the latest dose of bad news regarding the health of Marc Savard, they go out and have one of their most offensively lacking performances in recent memory?

The Bruins went into the Pepsi Center Saturday and backed up David Krecji’s recent words about good teams not losing back-to-back games.

The Bruins were expecting a tough one in Carolina on Tuesday night, and though it didn't always look promising, they found a way to grab two points in regulation with a 3-2 victory (recap).
