I grew up in a golden era of the Bruins and Canadiens rivalry. The Bruins had Milan Lucic, Andrew Ference, Zdeno Chara, Adam McQuaid, Greg Campbell, and Shane Hnidy. Montreal had Mike Komisarek, Josh Gorges, Roman Hamrlík, Maxim Lapierre, and Tom Kostopoulos. Anytime that game was coming up on the schedule; we knew … Keep Reading
Hockey is a rough sport at any level. Players across the National Hockey League have cemented their names in legend through their “rub some dirt on it” attitudes. A few recent examples are Patrice Bergeron playing in the Finals with a punctured lung and Gregory Campbell’s penalty kill on a broken fibula.… Keep Reading
In previous years, the Bruins have formed an identity around the personnel of the fourth line. The identity began with the infamous 2011 Merlot Line with Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Shawn Thornton. The trio was a lethal fourth line that played in critical matchups, and they weren’t afraid to get in the … Keep Reading
From fights to big hits to penalty shot magic, Shawn Thornton defined his career as a fourth-line grinder who was idolized in Boston.
Donning the number 22, Shawn Thornton was originally drafted in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs, 190th overall. However, Shawn never got to play a game with the Leafs. Instead, … Keep Reading
Who doesn’t love a good merlot? It’s friendly, balanced, popular, and versatile. Fortunately for Bruins fans, we were spoiled by merlot for four years with the output, toughness, and passion of Gregory Campbell, Daniel Paille, and Shawn Thornton. But unfortunately, there hasn’t been another group of players to duplicate what that fourth line … Keep Reading
When critics gauge the offensive talent of a team, they tend to look at the top line or even the top-six forwards. Those that score 20-plus goals are the ones that draw the big bucks and are highlighted on the pre-game shows. For the Boston Bruins, the key to contending for Lord Stanley’s Cup … Keep Reading
The Bruins ended their season-long three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Penguins on Saturday. While the overall play of the Bruins has been subpar recently, there have been positives seemingly hidden amongst the bad. With only seven games remaining in the regular season, the main concern is getting the … Keep Reading
On December 17th, Bruins alumni player Gregory Campbell will celebrate his 38th birthday. Throughout Campbell’s twelve-year career in the NHL, he spent five of them with the Boston Bruins (2010-2015). Campbell was notably on the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Bruins team and helped the team in a big way playing all 25 games in the playoffs. … Keep Reading
For the second year in a row, the Bruins find themselves up 3-0 against the Philadelphia Flyers. Unlike last year, the Bruins looked to rewrite history and not lose control of this series. In series, when the Bruins are up 3-0, they are 16-1. Unfortunately, we know what that one loss is from. In-Game Three, the Bruins were finally able to … Keep Reading
With just three games remaining on the schedule, the Bruins looked to bounce back from a 5-3 loss to the New York Rangers when they hosted the New York Islanders on April 6th. Boston’s performance from the last game was nothing to be happy about as they allowed five unanswered goals after being up 3-0. It looked to … Keep Reading
