There the Bruins were, sitting on a cool 3-0 lead halfway through Monday night’s contest at Madison Square Garden, and on the way was most certainly another column about playoff matchups and the Bruins needing to keep pushing until both the Flyers and Capitals were looking up at them in the standings.

[Updated: 11:00 p.m.] If the those on hand for Saturday’s matinee between the Bruins and Thrashers didn’t appear to be on the edge of their seats at the Garden, it’s because they weren’t.

Enough games have been played to properly summarize Brad Marchand in his rookie season: He plays scrappy, he kills penalties and he talks. A lot.
DJ Bean

The final games of the regular season are about a few different things for a team gearing up for the playoffs. To the naked eye, the most obvious thing that stands out is that the Bruins are within three points of the Capitals for the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Bruins clinched a playoff spot Sunday, and the news barely moved the needle. That's the way it should be.
DJ Bean

Trap games can usually be seen coming from a mile away. Some thought Saturday could be such a contest, but with the Bruins’ stretch of three Eastern Conference playoff teams in four nights, one would think would be no room for a trap game.

Big and Bad. Maybe it's overrated. On a night when there were zero signs of life from the Canadiens, the Bruins opted to display a different 'B' Thursday: Better.
DJ Bean
03/23/2011 - 6:20pm
Thursday night is going to be a big test for the Bruins, but when it comes to all the obstacles the B's will face with the Habs in town, there me be none greater than the challenge of keeping focused.

Milan Lucic is not Cam Neely.

WILMINGTON -- Tyler Seguin's terrific play has rarely been a storyline this season, and the explanation as to why is pretty simple: The rookie's play hasn't been terrific.

March isn't a good time for team to be in free-fall, so with 11 games remaining in the regular season, the Bruins, 1-3-3 over their last seven games, are hoping consecutive days at Ristuccia arena for the first time in a while will do the trick. While the town laments their play of late, the players in the room are just trying to diagnose the issue and remedy it.

Remember the good old days of January?
DJ Bean

When the Bruins were in the midst of their impressive seven-game win streak, people saw just how good they can be. All of the summer hype that surrounded the team in the months leading up to the regular season suddenly seemed on par.
DJ Bean

While this may not be easy for Bruins fans to hear, it should be easy for the league to decide. 
DJ Bean

The Bruins ended their four-game skid in dramatic fashion on Tuesday, requiring a shorthanded tally from Rich Peverley, as well as big saves from both Tuukka Rask and Tomas Kaberle

What a difference a week makes.

Here’s a sentence that wasn’t a leading candidate to exist two days ago: Zdeno Chara got a raw deal.
DJ Bean
03/09/2011 - 1:13am
Zdeno Chara has been plenty of things in his NHL career: The tallest guy to ever play the game. The captain who got the “C” before playing a single game with the Bruins.

WILMINGTON – The Bruins and Canadiens have set the bar pretty high, even by this rivalry’s standards.  The last time the two teams met, they combined for 187 penalty minutes and 14 goals in an 8-6 Bruins victory. 
DJ Bean
03/06/2011 - 1:45am
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.  
DJ Bean
03/04/2011 - 4:57pm
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. 
DJ Bean
03/03/2011 - 11:44pm
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. 
DJ Bean
03/02/2011 - 12:58am
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).
DJ Bean

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.
