#HockeyHalloween2014

Happy Hockey Halloween everyone! It’s that special time of the year again when all of our favorite hockey players dress up in hilarious and sometimes ridiculously tiny, costumes, for our entertainment.  Most of the time, it is to bring joy and smiles to sick kids.  But sometimes it is strictly for our enjoyment. Especially these […]

21 Days

It’s hard to believe three weeks of playoffs are in the books!  In some ways, I appreciate being down to just a few games per night.  Some nights I can even play hooky from watching.  That means catching up with NHL Network though, and there’s nothing worse than hour after hour of only 2 games […]

Happy Monday

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!  I got to wear shorts and a tank top this weekend AND the Penguins won last night, so I don’t even hate Mondays.  It’s Day 20 of the playoffs, and if you spent the past few days enjoying the sun, here’s what was happening on TV: Penguins and Rangers series […]

Weekend Update

I didn’t get to watch much hockey after Friday night, but the playoffs wait for no DVR.  In case anyone else (mostly) missed the weekend festivities… The networks have all kinds of on-hiatus hockey players pitching in as commentators during these playoffs.  Let us make the offer official: Alex Pietrangelo, you and your currently unemployed […]

Day Seven

It was bound to happen and one night it did (Thanks, Garth)… the Tampa Bay Lightning were the first team eliminated from the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  I haven’t heard from Lindsay, who is probably wrapped in her Stamkos jersey like a shroud and laying on the floor in the space between her bed and […]

A Bruins Christmas Spectacular!

From ugly sweater photos and awkward, Russian-accented renditions of “Jingle Bells”, lots of NHL teams are getting into the holiday spirit. Now comes the Bruins’ turn – and it’s a Christmas gem. The Bear in the Gang – A Christmas Spectacular In this Bear and the Gang Christmas Spectacular, the team is all gathered in […]

I Can Never Unsee This

The Boston Bruins’ faux sitcom, The Bear and the Gang, returns “December-ish” and recently, they released this little teaser. I can never, EVER unsee this. Ever. The faux-show promises to be pretty delightful and awkward – which is pretty much the mantra of this blog.

Stop the Madness

Did Saturday’s Bruins/Pens debacle really happen?  I kept hoping to wake up and find that it was all just a horrible dream.  But alas, it was not. That mess really did happen.  I’m disgusted in both teams because they are better than that. They have really made me mad.  Like flames on the side of […]

Just Give Me a Reason

I suppose we need to talk about this.  I really don’t want to. I hate the Bruins.  Chuck hates the Penguins.  And while there’s plenty to shout about the opposition in last night’s debacle, it left more than enough responsibility for our own teams.  Two incidents, two aggressors, two outcomes.  I’ll leave it to Chuck […]

Foxy Friday: Matt Bartkowski

Sometimes being a Foxy Friday isn’t about being the #1 star or scoring all the goals.  Sometimes it is about being funny and charming and adorable. And totally crush-worthy. This week’s honoree has got it in spades. So let’s look at the reasons why Barty gets this week’s honor (besides his obvious awesomeness) In the […]

Pucks and Pups: The Bruins Edition

Hockey players.  Puppies. Two of the things we love most in the world. Put them together and let the seal-clapping and squeeeeeing commence. The Boston Bruins released their own 2014 calendar – just in time for the holiday season, natch – and here are some of the highlights I have no idea what is going […]

Buzzer Beater: Part 2

Last night was Bruins vs. Penguins so you knew that both of us were going to have to weigh in. The two best teams in the East faced off last night and the over arching theme was resiliency.  After the Penguins tied it up with 0.3 seconds left to send it to OT, some teams […]

60 Minutes

Last night, Bruins finally managed to put together a solid “60 minute effort”, as the kids like to say.  You know who is happy? Granted it was against the Carolina Hurricanes, who are taking a long ride on the struggle bus, but the effort was the Bruins’ most consistent of the season and they were […]

Karma is a….

You fill in the blank. Last night, Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley both scored in the shootout to lift the Stars over the Bruins.  Perhaps it is a little poetic justice for those two guys who had to endure the embarrassing and juvenile booing and chants each time they touched the puck. Booing?  Really?  Why is that […]

Return of the Segs

After his abrupt and somewhat surprising departure from Boston this summer, tonight marks Tyler Seguin’s return to Boston.  It’s been four months since the fireworks of the July 4th trade that sent Seguin to Dallas Stars.  The pain of that day still stings at times, but like any resilient New Englander, I just have to […]

Show Me The Real You

For a while, I’ve been secretly lamenting the sad lack of behind the scenes Bruins footage.  It seemed like every other team in the NHL was out there, posting juicy clips and video packages, giving their fans a delicious glimpse into their inner workings. All franchises except the Bruins. Perhaps they were and I just […]

Birthday Boy: Patrice Bergeron

Happy 28th Birthday to the one…the only…the Boston legend himself, Patrice Bergeron. Even if you don’t like the Bruins , you love Patrice. Even Pants loves Patrice. I mean, just look at him. The way he plays. The way he carries himself. His face. There is a reason I call him ‘Perfect Patrice’.  

Summer Nights

Oh for heaven’s sake.  Come home from tropical vacation, depressed about going back to work?  Sidney Crosby to the rescue. [Sorry y'all, copyrighted photos from this post were removed by request.  You'll have the survive on screencaps from the CTV interview linked below.] Sid and Brand Marchand took part in the Phoenix Night of Champions […]

Fireworks of a Different Kind

Yesterday was America’s birthday.  There were barbecues, patriotic music, fireworks, waving flags…and one very big trade. Yesterday, the Bruins decided to have their own pyrotechnic display when they traded former 1st round draft pick Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley, and prospect Ryan Button to the Dallas Stars for Loui Eriksson and three prospects – Joe Morrow, […]
