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).
DJ Bean
01/31/2011 - 8:28pm
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. 
DJ Bean
01/28/2011 - 2:56am
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. 
DJ Bean
01/27/2011 - 5:15am
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. 
DJ Bean
01/25/2011 - 3:12am
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? 
DJ Bean
01/22/2011 - 8:39pm
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.

One month ago, the sky was falling.

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). 
DJ Bean
01/17/2011 - 9:09pm
What was more surprising on Monday: Zdeno Chara's first career hat trick or the fact that the mild-mannered blueliner displayed a pretty nifty celebration as the hats fell to the ice?

The Penguins wanted to return the favor after the B's beat them twice in Pittsburgh this season.
DJ Bean
01/14/2011 - 6:50pm
Bruins captain Zdeno Chara has those who praise him, and he has his critics. In the case of the latter, some question his contract, while others wonder whether he's the right man to be wearing the "C" on his jersey.  
DJ Bean
01/14/2011 - 1:16am
Leave it to the Bruins and Flyers to make a 3-0 B's victory with Tim Thomas shutouts the most boring game between the squads this season. 
DJ Bean

Things got messy at TD Garden on Tuesday.
DJ Bean
01/11/2011 - 6:13am
The Bruins ended the first half of the season on a remarkable note when they scored four goals in the final 3:23 of regulation to beat the Penguins, 4-2. There may not be a better way of begging for a last-second grade inflation on a hockey scribe's report card.
DJ Bean
01/09/2011 - 1:13am
What didn't Saturday night's game between the Bruins and Canadiens, a 3-2 overtime win for the Habs (recap), feature? It had Habs' two-goal comeback in the final 2:22 of regulation.
DJ Bean
01/07/2011 - 1:29am
The Bruins suffered another power outage on Thursday in their 3-1 loss to the Wild on Thursday (recap).
DJ Bean
01/04/2011 - 12:39am
There was no question over who stole the show when Tuukka Rask led the Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Maple Leafs Monday night in Toronto (

Tim Thomas didn't end up getting the day off after all.
DJ Bean
12/31/2010 - 1:58am
If you think Thursday night's 3-2 shootout victory for the Thrashers over the Bruins (recap) a letdown, you are mistaken.
DJ Bean
12/29/2010 - 12:51am
The Bruins seem to have a full head of steam at the right time.
DJ Bean
12/28/2010 - 12:15am
The Bruins technically never led in Monday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Panthers (recap), but they got what they needed from the contest: two points and sudden bragging rights around the Northeast division.
