The Boston Bruins hit the ice Monday before leaving for Detroit.
The Bruins held their first practice in preparation for the Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday, and a handful of players were home sick fighting the flu.
The Stanley Cup Playoffs are here, and the Bruins finally have some issues to worry about.
The story of the game was the sloppy play of the Bruins’ young defensemen, who on some level all contributed to each of the Leafs’ four goals.
Bruins analyst Billy Jaffe joined Toucher & Rich on Thursday to chat about resting players, and the final spot on the Bruins’ blue line for the playoffs.
Five defenseman are all thought to be locks on the Bruins’ blue line come playoffs, leaving two men vying for one spot. Who is the odd man out?
Things are going swimmingly for the Bruins, but Claude Julien is making sure his defensemen remain sharp and take nothing for granted.
After an unspectacular trade deadline, Dave Goucher says the Bruins are going to have to stay healthy to make a Cup run this season.
Peter Chiarelli has now given coach Claude Julien eight defensemen to mix and match even without the injured Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid.
Joe Haggerty of Comcast SportsNet New England thinks the Bruins need a big, physical “Dennis Seidenberg-type” defenseman – the only problem is teams aren’t willing to budge on their top 4 guys just yet.
