The NHL A(wk)wards

Two posts in two days? This place is like Santa’s Workshop! Last night was the annual NHL Awards, or as we like to call it: the NHL A(wk)wards. Normally an unfunny, bumblingly-hosted, C-list celebfest, last night’s show was most of those things again. But better, no? I confess to liberal use of the mute button, […]

Candid Canada

I hope you made a New Year’s resolution to watch more hockey, if that’s possible.  Not in my house. While the US announced their Olympic roster after the Winter Classic, Canada found another way to fill their hockey quota. Video: CBC – Defending Gold: Inside the Making of Canada’s Team It’s thirty minutes inside the minds […]

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 […]

Summer’s Almost Gone

I cannot go away for one second!  It’s like Toy Story in here – I go outside and everything suddenly comes to life.  Where to begin? #TeamEbs took over the NHL Instagram account and used the opportunity to make fun of Molly Ringwald. Our favorite boy band also introduced an act at the Canadian Country […]

Team Canada – Casting Call

#CAMP may be over, but camps are just beginning.  Invitees for Team Canada’s Olympic camp were arriving in Calgary all weekend, as documented by this airport employee: Source: Twitter There is a space for volunteers.  AND IT IS BLANK. Alas, the enterprise of TSN is not to be underestimated.  They were live on the scene […]

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’.  

Blackhawks Win the Cup

So ends the 2013 season.  One lockout.  Zero Winter Classics, 24/7 episodes, All-Star Games or NHL Awards ceremonies.  One Stanley Cup. credit: sportsmockery I’m sure Chuck will do a post about the Bruins when she’s ready.  For now we send her and our other Bruins fan friends love.  We’ve all had teams lose before, but […]

A Flair for the Dramatic

Patrice Bergeron certainly has a flair for the dramatic, doesn’t he? First, his game tying and then game winning OT goal verses Toronto in Round 1 and now this.   While credit goes to Bergeron for scoring the goal, mad props go to Jaromir Jagr for making it all possible.  His play on Evgeni Malkin […]

There Will Be Blood… and Milkshakes

If last night’s Bruins/Rangers game was a movie, it would be called “There Will Be Blood”. Lumber was a-flying and the team trainers were going through cotton gauze like Taylor Swift goes through boyfriends. Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, and Carl Hagelin were just some of the players that needed zippers to close up gashes. Tyler […]

Poke the Bear. Get the Chuck.

Last night, Bruins beat the Jets in a shoot-out. Awesome. Top line of Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron, and Brad Marchand looks great, especially the Squirrel, who was all over the ice, collecting up all those acorns. That’s cool. Tuukka Rask played well and looked sharp in the shoot out. Word. But, people, not all was […]

Selke Smooth

While the NHL Awards are far from and probably never will be perfect, there are a few things that they get right. Take last night for instance. Last night, Patrice Bergeron FINALLY won the Frank J. Selke Trophy. All is right in the hockey universe. If you read this blog, or follow our twitter, or […]

NHL Awards: Hot. Mess.

Did everyone enjoy the Nickelback Convention last night?  The Awkard Turtle Unfunny Comedy Tour? There were a few bright spots, like Will Arnett.  Especially when he shanabanned Ovi for blocking Brooks Laich’s parking spot and sentencing him to ride on the back of Mike Green’s scooter. WHY CAN’T THIS BE REAL LIFE? While peering between […]

NHL Awards: Who Should Win? Who Will Win?

Tonight’s the night. NHL Awards in Las Vegas! Bring on the attractive hockey players in impeccably fitted suits.  Bring on the awkward (and hilarious) red carpet interviews.   Bring on the D-list celebrities who can’t pronounce the winner’s name (Martin St. Lewis!). Here’s who we think is going to bring on the hardware… Hart (Lundqvist/Malkin/Stamkos) Should: Chuck […]

Must See TV

Do yourself a favor. Click on the image below. Watch the video. Totes brilliant, right?  LOVE IT!! Screen capping GOLD!

Mayday!

MAYDAY! MAYDAY! Help! The Bruins are teetering precariously on the edge of the abyss…and they are threathening to take me with them. Saturday, they lost to the Capitals.  Yesterday, they got violated by the Penguins.  Patrice Bergeron and Adam McQuaid both got injured.  With Nathan Horton, Rich Peverley, Beniot Pouliot, and Tuukka Rask already out, […]

A Lesson from the Professor

Last night, Patrice Bergeron gave a lesson on how to play like a boss. Granted, he’s always exceptional in my opinion, but last night vs. the Panthers, #37 really was the #1 star of the game. He scored both goals during regulation for the Bruins – this wrister on a sicky no-look pass from Pouliot […]

NHL 36: The Professor

Somebody check on Chuck and Cassy because the second episode of NHL 36 is going to profile none other than Patrice Bergeron. NEW YORK – The National Hockey League (NHL®) and NHL Original Productions today announced Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron as the next NHL player to be profiled in the all-access series NHL 36.  Air date: Wednesday, Jan. 4, […]

Chuck's Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve!  Rudolph had the night off to carbo load but the Boston Bruins scored one goal for each of Santa’s other reindeer.  That’s right, the Bruins scored 8 goals.  The Panthers scored zero.  I know Chuck would want you to see this: I cannot recall a prettier goal this season.  Marchand had a […]

Hi, I'm Tyler Seguin and I'm a boss.

Yes, you are, Tyler Seguin.   Yes. You. Are. TS19 scored his first career hat trick in the Bruins 7-o rout of Cartman Phil Kessel and the Maple Leafs and it was glorious. Goal # 1 – One-timer from the left circle.  Great cross ice pass from Peverley and Seguin SNIPES it.  Goal #2 – Truly […]

Put a Ring on it.

A Stanley Cup ring, that is. Check that out!  That ring = boss. 300 diamonds total.  66 on the ring crest with the iconic spoked “B” over the image of the Stanley Cup.  6 diamonds around the logo signifying the Bruins’ six Cup championships.  One side has the player’s name and number, other side has […]
