Grading the Boston Bruins Aftter The First Month of The NHL Season

A 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals at TD Garden wrapped up the first month of the NHL season for the Boston Bruins. The Bruins made a strong push against the Caps, but the lack of experience and the talent of Braydon Holtby foiled the comeback bid. Currently the Bruins are sitting at a mediocre 5-4-3, which if you consider all the adversity this team has faced is acceptable. Survival Survive: that’s what the Bruins have had to do the past month. With all the injuries on this team that have been well documented the offense is not capable...

Bruins Injuries More Concerning Than They Seem

Backes Injury The Bruins cannot seem to catch a break this season, this time it’s not even on the ice. It seemed like the Bruins had finally figured it out on the ice, stringing some quality games together. They seem to have gotten their feet under them after the early injuries. Now the team has taken another major hit to the forward group. The Boston Bruins announced that David Backes would be placed on injury reserve. Backes will be out for a minimum of eight weeks. At the start of the season, Backes missed time due to diverticulitis, a gastrointestinal...

Heartbreaking Ending Overshadows Successful Boston Homestand

SUCCESSFUL BOSTON HOMESTAND As hard as it is to believe, the Boston Bruins homestand was actually a success. The Bruins earned 6 out of a possible 8 points during the 4 game stint at the Garden and showed signs of life. Boston kicked off the homestand with an impressive 6-3 win over the Canucks. This was followed by a 5-4 overtime loss to the Sabres, 2-1 victory over San Jose and finally a 2-1 overtime loss to the red hot Kings. Just looking at the boxscores will not show the entire story, this was a rollercoaster ride. When the...

Bruins Upcoming Schedule Could Bury Them

Slow Start In the NHL there is a common belief that if your team is above the playoff line by Black Friday, then your practically a lock for the playoffs. This shows that the good teams have strong starts and never look back. For the Bruins that should be quite concerning. The Bruins had a cakewalk of a schedule to start the new season.  Boston should come out of the gates hot and rack up some easy points. However, it’s been anything but easy for the Bruins so far. Currently, they sit at 3-3-1 with a total of seven...

Bruins Show Lack of Mental Toughness in Latest Collapse

Saturday night delivered a brutal punch to the gut of all Bruins fans.  During pregame warm ups we learned that David Krejci wouldn’t take the ice. Krejci was replaced by the definition of useless in Matt Belesky and the night would only get worse for Boston. Good Start The Bruins looked great through the first period and a half, mounting a 3-0 lead. Both Marchand and Pastranak scored two goals apiece, and the Bruins looked sharp on both ends of the ice. The offense had great puck movement, mounting some solid zone time and got in hard on the...

Bruins Center Spooner Out 4-6 Weeks

Ryan Spooner is the Latest Injury Victim Spooner suffered a right groin adductor tear against Vegas on Sunday. The first reaction is obviously how the loss of Spooner will hurt the Bruins. The reality is that Spooner’s injury is a blessing in disguise. While nobody ever wants to see anyone hurt, Spooner was a lame duck on this Bruins team. Spooner, now 25 years old, is signed to a one year bridge contract. Evidently the Bruins don’t view him as a part of the future, if they did then, he would have had a real offer given to him. The...

Is It Panic Time For The Bruins?

Two nights, two completely different outcomes. After an impressive showing in Arizona, the Bruins had a chance to gain some momentum heading back to Boston. Instead, the Bruins layed a massive egg and were shut down by former teammate Malcolm Subban. It wasn’t like Subban was tested that much, the Bruins couldn’t get it going offensively. The lackluster showing in Vegas concluded a frustrating and disappointing roadtrip. The Bruins looked lifeless in the first period, barely generating anything offensively. Another slow start for the Bruins is  alarming. The entire reason for a coaching change was the slow starts, which...

Bruins Need to Balance Roster

The Bruins opened the season  with an impressive 4-3 victory against the reigning Western Conference champions. What was most impressive was how the young kids played. Both McCavoy and Debrusk scored their first NHL goals and looked more than comfortable playing at the highest level. But a home-road matchup with Colarado ending with the Bruins getting outscored 10-3 was quite sobering. The Bruins looked outmatched against the Avalanche, both offensively and defensively.  Much of the early season struggles on the defensive side are due to the absence of Selke winner Bergeron, and Backes.  Right now,  the Bruins look lost...
