When I was younger, I played NHL 06 on my dad’s PC. Of course, I always played as the Bruins, which is where most of my mid-2000s Bruins knowledge comes from. One of my favorite players to use in that game was Glen Murray. He was a big-bodied right-handed forward who wore number 27.

Since 2003, Patrice Bergeron has only pulled on the black and gold Boston Bruins uniform (apart from international and all-star competitions). He rose up through the ranks and became one of the most underrated players in the entire league. He then surpassed his underrated status and became properly recognized as one of the best

So, recently I posted a video on YouTube where I gave my wish list of defensemen for the Bruins to target in a trade. In the video, I wasn’t looking at who the B’s would have to give up. It was purely just an idealistic perspective without considering the return that would have to go the

When Free Agency opened up on July 28, all eyes in Boston focused on Don Sweeney as teams scrambled to grab their top choices.

Background

It’s time for part two of my series designing a potential city jersey for the Boston Bruins, and I think I like this creation even better than my first. While the first design focused on Boston’s place within history, this time, I decided to focus on the history of the people who call Boston home.

Despite having 44 shots on goal in game five, the Bruins were not able to outscore the Islanders, who only managed 19 shots. The Islanders took a 3-2 series lead heading back to New York, and it’s safe to say the Bruins have their work cut out for them. The next two games are do-or-die for
