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.

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.

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

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

Here’s a sentence that wasn’t a leading candidate to exist two days ago: Zdeno Chara got a raw deal.

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.

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.
