On their way to capturing at least one point for the seventh time in their last eight games (they’ve grabbed 11 of a possible 16 points over that span), the severely undermanned Bruins defeated the Wild by a 5-3 final. But that’s not the impressive part, really. What is impressive was the fact that...

David Krejci is not ready to ride in and save the day for the injury-plagued Bruins. Absent from the last six games thanks to an upper-body injury, that figure will surely be bumped up to 10 by the time the B’s have their next update on their second-line pivot. “Krejci is out this week,” Bruins...

Just 12 games into the season, the Bruins have already lost 50 man-games to injury. That number is only going up when Bruce Cassidy’s squad plays host to the visiting Wild tonight at TD Garden, too, and with a fresh face added to the list, as top-line winger Brad Marchand has been ruled out of...

It was after Thursday’s win over the Golden Knights that Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy stressed the importance of his team successfully drawing penalties. That was an obvious desire from Cassidy as an NHL coach (they always believe they deserve more power-play opportunities), but also made more...

It’s gonna be low-scoring, ugly, and with an emphasis on defense. But if it comes with results, like it did in a 2-1 victory over the Golden Knights at TD Garden on Thursday, Bruce Cassidy and the Bruins will surely take it. Take the B’s first period for example: Although the Bruins didn’t let the...

It took an injury to David Backes, who is expected to miss the next eight weeks as he will have part of his colon surgically removed, to get Matt Beleskey back in the mix for the Bruins. It's an opportunity no matter how you slice it, beginning with tonight's head-to-head against the Vegas Golden...

After missing the first five games of the regular season with diverticulitis, and with the likelihood of another episode affecting him this season, the Bruins have made the decision to surgically remove part of Backes’ colon, a decision and procedure that is expected to put the 33-year-old forward...

The Boston Bruins found a way to stay busy, even on a scheduled off day, assigning forward Kenny Agostino and Zane McIntyre to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League. For Agostino, it seemed like this was just a matter of time. Increasingly ineffective with more NHL exposure, with zero...

Losses shouldn’t feel like wins, but erasing a three-goal deficit and stealing a point by way of an overtime loss against the Blue Jackets should feel like one for the Bruins given where they were at the halfway mark of this game at Nationwide Arena. One thing we can say about these Bruins through...
