A Bruins power play is like a new Justin Timberlake album: fantastic and uncommon.

Playing on a fourth line for the Red Wings is quite different from playing on a fourth line for the Bruins. Landon Ferraro knows from experience.

It was in 2011-12 that Zdeno Chara’s slap shot was clocked at 108.8 miles per hour, the hardest recorded shot in the history of the NHL.

When the Bruins traded Dougie Hamilton to the Flames for three draft picks back in June, there was a nearly universal reaction that they didn’t get enough.

When the doors to the Bruins’ dressing room open to the media the morning of game days, the only repulsive odor is sweat.

That the Bruins were in playoff position on Thanksgiving didn’t really matter.
DJ Bean

While a blowout win is ideal, there might not have been a better way for the Bruins to end their five-game home stand than with a grind-it-out, outlast-the-opponent-through-a-scoreless-night kind of victory.

At 8-8-1, the Bruins are not a particularly good team. They do some things well, but a month and a half into the season, they’re not the titans of the Eastern Conference that they once were.

Claude Julien came into the season jazzed about what could be for the Bruins' new-look team. After 17 games, he doesn’t sound so excited anymore.

Zac Rinaldo is very confident in himself. He believes he can be a regular NHL player. He believes in his speed.

Not long ago, beating an OK team playing the second game of a back-to-back in mid-November wouldn’t even move the needle for the Bruins.

WILMINGTON — The Bruins dressing room at TD Garden must be an interesting place at around 7:45 p.m. on game nights.

The Bruins’ power play has scored seven goals over the team’s last six games. That’s the nice way of putting it. 
DJ Bean

Claude Julien’s Bruins teams usually score a lot. (Yes they do. Look it up.)

Athletes are told from a young age not to read too much into one game. Whether it's a good performance or a bad performance, just move on.
