Injuries The Bruins welcomed David Backes, Ryan Spooner, David Krejci, Brad Marchand and Anders Bjork back to the lineup last week.

However, DeBrusk remains on IR with an upper body injury. When the Bruins get Quaider and DeBrusk back, I believe...

Bergeron Plans to Return This Weekend

The season hasn’t exactly started the way Patrice Bergeron would have liked. Like last year, Bergy starts the season with a lower body injury.

Bruins Look to Bounce Back Tonight

The Bruins hope to bounce back tonight in Colorado after a disappointing matinee Monday and play the way they did in their season opener against the Nashville Predators. Bruins Sign white to PTO The Bruins made a couple of minor transactions on Tuesday.   One includes the signing of ex-Montreal Canadian tough guy Ryan White to a PTO. White could bring some grit and toughness to the Bruins’ young and speedy forward group.  White has quite the resume in the NHL, playing for the Montreal Canadians, Philadelphia Flyers, Arizona Coyotes, and the Minnesota Wild.  He hopes the Bruins are his next destination.   “I play my game wherever I go,” said White. ”I’m probably here for a reason — just to play physical, straight up and down, north-south game, and chip in when I can. It’s pretty self-explanatory the way I play, and I can’t change it now.” Coaches and Players Comments Brad Marchand had some kind words on White when speaking to the media on Tuesday. “He’s a very competitive guy, very hard to play against, and a really good player,” Bruins winger Brad Marchand said of White. “He’s one of those guys you don’t want to play against, but you love to have him on your team. Very good locker room guy, and he’s the kind of guy you need on your team to go deep in the playoffs.” Head...
