As mentioned in this article’s companion piece (which you can find here), the Boston Bruins have come out on the winning end of several of the most lopsided trades in NHL history.

It didn’t take long for the Bruins to return to their winning ways after suffering their first regulation loss in 19 games against the Anaheim Ducks. Despite the team still missing Brad Marchand, Charlie McAvoy, Noel Acciari and now Anders Bjork, the Bruins showed no signs of slowing down Thursday night in a 3-1 victory

It didn’t take long for bad injury luck to strike the Bruins after the team was relatively healthy for a few months.

When a team is rolling the way the Boston Bruins have been, the hope is that nothing changes for as long as possible. Unfortunately, life isn’t always fair and things don’t always go as planned. For the Bruins, this was the case when Charlie McAvoy had surgery, Brad Marchand got suspended and Noel Acciari got

The NHL has come down hard on Boston Bruins’ forward Brad Marchand, suspending him five-games for an illegal elbow to the head of New Jersey Devils’ forward Marcus Johansson.

Unless they’re named Jaromir Jagr or Tom Brady, turning 40 tends to mark the last hoorah of a professional athlete’s career.

Recent rumors indicate that the Boston Bruins have expressed interest in Edmonton Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Nick Kypreos mentioned the Bruins on Hockey Night in Canada as a team that has checked on the 24-year-old pivot’s availability. The Bruins may be looking for a center for any number of reasons. For starters, Ryan Spooner is a restricted free agent (RFA) again at

Though a Stanley Cup Championship in 2011 was probably worth it, Peter Chiarelli’s tenure with the Boston Bruins is (for better or worse) largely tainted by miscalculations. Swings-and-misses in free agency and at the draft. Rash, compromising, franchise-altering trades. Egregious misappropriations of precious funds which served to dismember one of the league’s elite franchises. You
