CHICAGO – The Bruins’ situation right now is a lot like the 45-minute mark of Ted: It isn’t good, but it isn’t over. 
DJ Bean
06/21/2013 - 6:49pm
CHICAGO -- There's been no finger-biting, no whining, no complaints to the league. It's just been good hockey.

Jonathan Toews didn’t just poke the bear, he went all Liam Neeson and taped broken nips bottles to his hands* in preparation for a best-of-three battle he isn’t afraid of his team fighting.

Neither Rich Peverley's body nor his feelings are hurt.

Hockey players will do just about anything for the Stanley Cup. You knew that, of course. This isn't a news story. 
DJ Bean
06/18/2013 - 1:19am
How are the Bruins beating the Blackhawks? Kind of the same way they beat the Penguins: by taking Chicago’s top offensive players out of the equation. 
DJ Bean
06/16/2013 - 2:26am
CHICAGO – What was that thing that appeared on the ice a little over halfway through the second period on Saturday at United Center?  It was hard to tell exactly what it was, but it created chances, forced turnovers and scored two goals. 
DJ Bean
06/14/2013 - 6:40pm
CHICAGO – Maybe the perception of Nathan Horton is wrong. 
DJ Bean
06/13/2013 - 6:53pm
CHICAGO – This isn’t the time for Claude Julien to worry about player development. 
DJ Bean
06/13/2013 - 1:57am
CHICAGO – The Bruins could have been sleeping at midnight Thursday in Chicago, so it was only fitting that their shortcomings led to them getting a wakeup call at that time. 
DJ Bean
06/12/2013 - 12:53am
CHICAGO -- Last season was the weirdest of Tyler Seguin’s career. He didn’t even make it to the Stanley Cup finals. 
DJ Bean
06/10/2013 - 8:34am
After the Bruins made quick work of the last team anyone expected to be swept, folks should be feeling pretty good about their team’s chances against the Blackhawks with the Stanley Cup on the line. 
DJ Bean

The Bruins shouldn’t be here.  And it's not a “these guys got some lucky bounces and the other team should have won” type thing. They actually shouldn’t be here.  Not only are they here, but they’re now the best team in hockey. At this point, how could anyone disagree with that?
DJ Bean

Until next year, Merlot Line. 
DJ Bean
06/06/2013 - 6:37am
If the Bruins had to give a 48-game pitch as to why you should watch them, root for them, believe in them, etc., it probably would be underwhelming. If they had to give a 95-minute, 19-second pitch, that’s a different story.
DJ Bean

The series is young. Don’t forget it.

PITTSBURGH -– Turns out the Penguins are kind of a mess. Who knew? 
DJ Bean
06/02/2013 - 2:55pm
"We hated them so much. We really did. Just so cocky. And we prevailed. We kept on working. It was just everything about them -- the diving, hitting [Nathan Horton], the whining in the papers. But you know, we took it, we went with it ... stuck to our game, played our game, and won it."
DJ Bean

PITTSBURGH – That didn’t take long. 
DJ Bean
05/31/2013 - 5:00pm
PITTSBURGH -- Come on, James Neal.
DJ Bean
05/31/2013 - 8:59am
PITTSBURGH -- By now you’ve probably heard the underdog talk from the Bruins, and even if it’s just gamesmanship, they’re not saying anything that isn’t true.
DJ Bean

PITTSBURGH – Tyler Seguin didn’t play in the first two rounds of the 2011 postseason before coming alive in the Eastern Conference finals, and the Bruins have to hope history will repeat itself. It has so far, as there hasn’t been that much proof that Seguin has played the first two rounds this year.
DJ Bean

Scenario one: You’ve made it to the Eastern Conference finals having played big postseason minutes as a rookie. You’re playing against the team you grew up cheering for and are teammates with one of your hockey idols.  Scenario two: You’re not playing hockey right now and haven’t for a month.

"Deep" doesn't do the Penguins justice. They are absolutely loaded.

A day or two after the Bruins eliminated the Lightning to win the Eastern Conference two years ago, general manager Peter Chiarelli held a press conference.
