I really do think that we Bostonians are a rational bunch, for the most part. But drive down Tim Thomas Avenue, take the first left off Food Poisoning Lane, and eventually you’ll find a tiny little condo. As small as that condo might be, it’s been hosting the most obnoxious party ever for years on...

I still believe that the Bruins can win a Stanley Cup with Tuukka Rask as their No. 1 goaltender, so I’m a Bruins honk. I don’t think that Tuukka Rask is a massive choke artist preventing the Bruins from getting there, so I’m part of the ‘Boo-Hoo Tuukka Crew.’ (God, what a dumb nickname. I’ll...

It was around this time last year that Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask felt pushed. That was by his own coach, then-interim head coach Bruce Cassidy, who called him out after an undeniably subpar performance against the Lightning. From there, Rask lit the world on fire for a strong finish and the...

When Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy took to his pregame press conference and announced that Tuukka Rask would be scratched from his start about an hour or so before Saturday’s puck drop against the Canadiens, I knew what was coming. To his credit, Cassidy did his best to clarify that Rask’s...

Unofficially scheduled to be in net for Saturday's season series finale against the Canadiens, Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy has decided to scratch Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask due to a ‘very minor’ injury currently bothering the 30-year-old Rask. "Talked to Tuukka [today], he's playing through a...

Goaltender interference has become the NHL equivalent of an NFL catch. I say this only because I am now confident in telling you that I have legitimately no clue how the hell the powers that be are going to rule such a happening when challenged. The good (I guess?) news: neither do the players paid...

The Bruins knew they played a little too fast and loose in the defensive zone in their 6-1 loss to the Canucks, with six goals on just 24 shots against, on Saturday. But after a Sunday practice focused on adjusting -- or returning, rather -- to their patented five-man support in front of their...

Does this weekend feel familiar at all? Not by its exact date, but in terms of what it is, and what it was a year ago. It was a year ago this weekend (again, contextually), and on the eve of the Super Bowl, that the Bruins played one of their worst games of the Claude Julien era in a 6-5 loss to...

It would have been easy for the Bruins, who saw their 18-game point streak come to an end in their last outing (a 3-1 loss to the Ducks), begin to spiral out of control against a similarly-built Blues team on Thursday night. And the frustration of a 22-shot-but-goalless second period certainly...

In keeping up with what’s been the theme of their season, the Bruins played their most anticipated game of the season, a Saturday night showdown against Claude Julien and the Canadiens, the same night and time as an obviously far more important local game. But fortunately for viewers unwilling to...
