After the Bruins rolled out that pile of crap they called an effort versus Vancouver, a fan of the Black & Gold had enough. And I don’t blame him/her one bit for kind of celebrating Vancouver’s hat trick out of pure disgust. Mental mistakes by the barrels, giving ZERO f*cks and just going through the motions….this is now called Bruins hockey.
So as a sign of protest on how Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli single handed wrecked a perennial Cup contender, this fan just tossed away the one good memory the team has has since 1972.
Don’t worry Bruins nation it’s just 37 years until the next cup!
With the All-Star Break encompassing seven of the last nine days, the Bruins have played just four games in the last two weeks while continuing to jockey for playoff positioning. Aside from Patrice Bergeron, the team’s lone representative in Columbus, the B’s enjoyed their eight days off and look to pick up where they left off to begin the unofficial second half of the season. The last two weeks have included a theme of very late Colorado goals, a milestone point for a Bruins’ centerman and the first NHL brawl for one young defenseman. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.
Patrice Bergeron had a very impressive All-Star Game debut for Team Toews.
0.3: Jarome Iginla scored a goal with 0.3 seconds left in the first period to give the Avalanche a 1-0 lead on Jan. 21. It was the second straight period the Avs scored a goal with under a second remaining against the Bruins as Daniel Briere scored with 0.4 remaining in the game to win it for them on Oct. 13.
1: Craig Cunningham notched the first career assist (third point) as he recorded the primary helper on Gregory Campbell’s goal in Dallas on Jan. 20 in his 24th career game.
1: David Pastrnak recorded his first NHL penalty (a slash) on Jan. 21 in the 3-2 shootout loss to the Avalanche.
It’s now officially official. The Boston Bruins will face the Montreal Canadiens during the 2016 Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium.
Bruins Official Website:
BOSTON, MA – The National Hockey League announced today, January 24, that the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® will feature the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, on January 1, 2016. When these long-time rivals meet, Boston will become the first NHL team to host the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® for a second time, after defeating the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime at the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® at Fenway Park. It will mark the first time the Canadiens will play in the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, and just the second time a Canadian-based NHL team will play in the game, following Toronto’s appearance in 2014.
Additional information relating to the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, including ticketing information, will be released at a future date.
This was officially announced today by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman during the 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend in Columbus.
Let the hate flow!
The Bruins seem to have found their stride as the first half of the season has come and gone and as a team hanging around the bottom of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, their current five-game winning streak could not have come at a better time. Over the last couple of weeks, the B’s have extended some recent dominance over a couple different opponents, seen their prized rookie do something not many Bruins’ teenagers have, outshot an opponent by more than they have in almost five years, fired the fewest shots on goal they have had in a period this season, had a couple centermen hit a milestone on the same night and rattled off a season-high point streak. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.
David Pastrnak has come on in a big way over the last few games and is in Boston to stay.
1: Former Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin made his first start against Boston as his Hurricanes came away with the 2-1 shootout win on Jan. 4 in Raleigh.
1: David Pastrnak scored his first NHL goal – first two actually – in the 3-1 win over the Flyers on Jan. 10. He is the youngest NHL player to appear in a game this season.
1: In the same game, the Bruins won for the first time this season when Zdeno Chara committed a penalty (1-5-3). They then improved to 2-5-3 in their next game against Tampa Bay.
1: Patrice Bergeron was selected as the Bruins’ lone representative to the All-Star Game for the first time in his career.
Well in just 24 hours, it has gone from bad to worse for the Boston Bruins. They came out uninspired and downright horrid falling to the bottom dwelling Carolina Hurricanes, 2-1 in a shootout.

Safe To say that Bruins fans have lost their friggin’ minds (like Cam Neely) as this team has gone from elite to mediocre (and that’s being nice) in a matter of 8 months. All GM Peter Chiarelli has done is subtract from the roster that was the best in the regular season last year. He gave everyone on the team 25 years deals, gave everyone including the TD Garden janitor a no trade clause and traded a top four defensemen which was a “core guy” for a lifetime’s supply of turtle wax from the now playoff bound N.Y. Islanders. So the U.S.S. Boston Bruins has been taking on water and Cap’n Pete is holding on to the wheel steering towards a wicked big friggin’ iceberg.
Pete….we are still waiting…..and waiting….and waiting for that trade!
So the folks at Big Bad Bruins, BST&N & Dirty Water Tees figured we might as well kill some time and vent some frustrations by getting YOUR creative juices flowing.
We want you to use your anger for something good like making a fantastic Peter Chiarelli MEME!
