Last season Noel Acciari established himself as a solid fourth-line contributor. He appeared in a career-high 60 games and helped solidified the Bruins’ fourth line. He had a career-high 11 points including 10 goals, more than doubling his previous career high of 2. Acciari was a key contributor to the team’s fourth line, which was unexpectedly

Can The Bruins Fourth Line Repeat Last Year’s Success?

Written By: Jamie Gatlin   |   Follow Me On Twitter: @JamieGatlin1217

Last season the Bruins’ fourth line was one of the most productive in recent memory. They drew comparisons to the Bruins’ fourth line in 2011, which was key in their Stanley Cup run. This offseason, the Bruins lost Tim Schaller in free agency as he signed with Vancouver. He was one of the key contributors on the team’s last line.

B’s Dip Into Hurricanes’ Depth Again, Sign Nordstrom to 2 Year Deal.

Remember when the Bruins took a chance on some guy from Carolina 2 years ago in free agency, and he turned into a 3rd Line Center of every B’s fan’s dreams? Joakim Nordstrom may not be Riley Nash, but apparently, the Bruins are comfortable using the Hurricanes’ bottom half of the roster as their depth farm system. The Bruins signed Nordstrom,

Boston Bruins: Will The B’s Keep Tim Schaller

The Boston Bruins have had a thing about local players these last few years. Unfortunately for the B’s, that hasn’t really worked out for them. The Bruins kept looking for that local, gritty winger but ended up getting disappointed in players like Jimmy Hayes and Frank Vatrano.

The Bruins did seem to have better luck with New Hampshire native Tim Schaller though. Schaller

Boston Bruins: The Worker B’s Have They Finally Found Some New Merlot?

 

By: Lucas Salvatore | Check me out on Twitter @lsalvatore29

Have the Boston Bruins finally found a new consistent fourth line?

Since the separation of the legendary “Merlot Line” which included Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Shawn Thornton the Bruins have never really had another dominant fourth line, that was until this season when a new line was formed.

Sean Kuraly, Tim Schaller, and Noel Acciari have formed an

Resilience. Described by Merriam-Webster as the ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change. History has had its share of resilient feats, and the 2017-2018 Bruins team is one in the making.

In my ongoing series of columns surrounding the remaining Bruins regular season and expectations, today I’m going to dive into their most recent stretch of road games. As stated in the previous installment, this past week was a sizable test for the banged-up B’s as they traveled to St. Louis, Dallas, Minnesota, and Winnipeg. All of

Well, that was a poor showing. In one of the longest BFRs of the season, I had a few thoughts on the shocking showings the Bruins have had in the last week, and the asinine trade deadline rumors surrounding the team.
