On Monday, the Bruins traded defenseman Matt Hunwick to the Avalanche in exchange for former Boston University defenseman Colby Cohen. Hunwick, 25, was in his fourth season with the B's. He had three points and a plus-4 rating through 22 games. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said the deal had been in the works for some time, and the trigger was pulled on Monday.

Every offseason is full uncertainty. Of course, the summer is also the time that everyone, from the fans to the media and everyone in between, looks at what the coming season may hold. It's no surprise that once the games are played, just about everybody gets proven wrong in some, way shape or form.

The Bruins were missing a couple of key guys from Saturday's practice in Jordan Caron and David Krejci. Both players, as well as Marco Sturm, were battling the flu, but the absences weren't the story for B's.

It was an ugly special teams showing for the Bruins, but to put it in plainer terms, Friday's 3-0 loss against the Hurricanes in their black Friday matinee was just an ugly showing all around.

After Wednesday's 3-1 Bruins' win over the Panthers (recap), a couple of things seem to be happening more than one would expect this season: the B's are falling behind and overcoming it, and Brad Marchand is scoring shorthanded goals.

Given the Bruins' 7-1-0 road record entering Monday, one would think it would take a lot for a team to defeat them away from TD Garden. Luckily for the Lightning, the B's didn't give a lot in a 3-1 loss Monday night. Not 60 minutes' worth, at least.

The Bruins came back from a 3-0 deficit for the second time this season, but unlike the first time in Washington, they grabbed a point in a 4-3 shootout loss. David Krejci made his return to the Bruins' lineup after it was unknown whether he would play.

In sports, there are perfect matches, and there are just bad fits. Call them what they are.  Nathan Horton and the Florida Panthers were just a bad fit.

NEW YORK -- The Bruins grinded out a tough win over the Rangers on Wednesday, edging them in yet another one-goal game, 3-2. Tim Thomas made 34 saves on the night, really turning it on late as the Bruins were forced to kill off a 5-on-3 in a one-goal game late in the third period.

The Bruins ended their losing streak at home (0-2-1 over their last three at the Garden) on Monday night, defeating the Devils, 3-0, thanks to a 28-save shutout by

 The Bruins' goaltenders have been saying "that's hockey" an awful lot lately, and it hasn't been following poor individual performances.

The Bruins followed up an impressive come-from-behind victory in Pittsburgh by returning to the Garden in style, but unfortunately it was the same style fans have grown accustomed to in Boston over the last year.

The Bruins finally made their statement in Pittsburgh, and it didn't involve anybody touching Matt Cooke.

As Peter Chiarelli addressed the media on Monday regarding the status of David Krejci, who is out for at least a week with a concussion, it was clear as day that for a team that's off to such a hot start (7-3-1), the Bruins sure do have to give a lot of

There was one word on the minds of observers throughout Saturday night thanks to four pucks clanking off posts in the B's shootout loss to the Blues. Turns out it was on the Bruins' minds too.

When a team heads to the locker room trailing 3-0 with just nine shots on goal after two periods, it's hard to think that the eventual loss they'd be handed would be of the heartbreaking variety.

Tim Thomas has done some remarkable things on the young season, but if there's one thing that he's shown, it is that his left hip is even more interesting than his goals against average.

Bruins winger Jordan Caron celebrated his 20th birthday on Tuesday and, fittingly, his ability to seize opportunity early in his NHL career has been a gift to the B's.

The Bruins are a perfect 4-0 on the road to open the season, and nobody is talking about it. The team's leading goal-scorer of a season ago admittedly had a setback in his recovery from knee surgery recently, and nobody is talking about it.

As Claude Julien spoke of his team's first period play in a 3-2 loss on Saturday night (game recap), he wasn't saying anything the room didn't already know.
