Shots on Goal: Bruins Defeat Canucks, 6-3

The Boston Bruins got one of their key offensive players back from injury Thursday night.  Patrice Bergeron returned after a two week absence, and his contribution was immediately felt. The All-Star netted a goal and three assists in the Bruins 6-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks. Anton Khudobin (26 saves) got the call for Boston with Tuukka Rask sidelined due to a concussion incurred during practice the day before. Zane McIntyre has been brought up from Providence to back up Khudobin. After swapping early first period goals (Dereck Dorsett for Vancouver and Anders Bjork for Boston) the flood gates...

Shots on Goal: Avs Blank Bruins 4-0

The Colorado Avalanche have had the Bruins number on Garden ice since Mach 30, 1998, 11-0-1, and that trend continued in Monday afternoon’s matinee. Nail Yakupov scored twice while Semyon Valamov halted 29 shots as the Avs handed Boston their first loss of the season, 4-0. Valamov, who missed 40 games last season due to double hip surgery, improved his record to 2-0. “It’s a good start for me. I didn’t play for a long time,” Varlomov said. “Came back and started the season with two wins. It brings confidence to the team. I thought we played a very...

Shots on Goal: Bruins fall to Ottawa, 2-1 in Shootout.

The Ottawa Senators snapped the Bruins 6-game win streak Thursday night in Boston and in the process punched their ticket for the playoffs.

Alex Burrow’s notched his 15th goal of the season in regulation. Netminder...

Shots on Goal: Bruins fall to Lightning, 6-3

The alarms are sounding on Causeway St as the once resurgent Bruins drop their fourth straight game with Thursday night’s 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tampa snapped a three-game losing streak on the backs of Nikita Kucherov who recorded his third career hat trick and Peter Budaj’s (29-21-3) 28 save effort. After a scoreless first frame, David Pastrnak got the Bruins on the board with his 32nd goal of the season but the time to savor the lead was short-lived. Tampa Bay responded just 44 seconds later as Brayden Point tied it at 1-1. This would be...

Shots on Goal: Bruins fall short against Maple Leafs, 6-5

Lots of love for Jac



Lots of love for Jacob Markstrom’s beautiful new Bauer Vapor 1X custom graphics, but did you know he wasn’t really the first to wear it? When we talked to him around Christmas about the custom design we knew was coming, he said it was already on the pads worn by fellow Swede Filip Gustavsson at the World Junior Hockey championships. Look closely at the background graphic of Gustavsson’s pads (scroll through) and other than eliminating the solid block on the top corners, looks like he was right. Still gorgeous though. #InGoalisInTheRoom
