Bruins Head West for Three-Game Road Trip

Black & Gold to make stops in Colorado, Arizona, and Dallas

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - After a lengthy - and successful - seven-game homestand (5-2-0), the Bruins are headed back on the road for a three-game swing through Colorado, Arizona, and Dallas. The trip begins on Wednesday night in Denver against a high-powered Avalanche squad that is tied with Florida and Tampa Bay for the top spot in the National Hockey League with 61 points.

Colorado, which has three players (Nazem Kadri, Mikko Rantanen, and Nathan MacKinnon) in the top 16 of the NHL's scoring race, has won seven in a row overall and 16 straight on home ice.

Bruins' Homestand Closes with Loss to Anaheim

Boston falls to Ducks, 5-3, to end seven-game stretch at TD Garden at 5-2-0

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The Bruins' lengthy homestand came to a close on a low note on Monday night with a 5-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at TD Garden. Boston finished the seven-game stint on Causeway Street with a 5-2-0 record and will head out on a three-game road trip to Colorado, Arizona, and Dallas beginning on Wednesday.

David Pastrnak, Taylor Hall, and Erik Haula scored a goal apiece, but Boston was unable to overcome a 2-0 deficit in the first period. The tallies from Pastrnak (7:47 of the second) and Hall (15:52 of the second) pulled the Bruins within a goal on two separate occasions, but back-to-back markers by the Ducks in the opening 10 minutes of the third period put the game away.

Third Line, Pastrnak Lift Bruins Past Winnipeg

Marchand also suits up for Boston's 3-2 victory over the Jets

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - David Pastrnak's torrid stretch continued as he delivered the winner with a one-time blast on the power play early in the third period - his 11th goal of the month - to lift the Bruins past the Winnipeg Jets, 3-2, on Saturday afternoon at TD Garden. The victory marked Boston's 10th in 12 games to start January.

"He's on net," Bruce Cassidy said of Pastnak's recent run. "Like that shot today, he was off net with that earlier in the year - and in fairness to him, he hit crossbars and posts. Now it's going in…and when you start scoring, I think goal scorers start feeling it a little better. They're a little cleaner, their hands are lighter, all of those things come together for you. He's had chemistry with [Taylor] Hall."

Here's some other news and notes from the B's victory over the Jets:

Boston will be without Marchand, Blidh for matinee against Winnipeg

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The Bruins will be without Brad Marchand and Anton Blidh for Saturday's matinee against the Winnipeg Jets, coach Bruce Cassidy announced on Friday morning. Both wingers suffered upper-body injuries during Thursday's win over the Washington Capitals.

"[We'll] see how they are for next week," said Cassidy. "We'll probably give you a better idea after a couple of days, but neither will play [on Saturday]."

Bruins Respond with Character Win Over Caps

Boston bounces back, overcomes loss of Marchand in 4-3 victory

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The Bruins were keen on delivering a response.

Not just to the dud they put forth on Tuesday night in a lopsided setback to Carolina, but to the losses of fourth-line stalwart Anton Blidh and leading scorer Brad Marchand - both of whom were knocked out of Thursday's tilt against Washington after taking heavy hits.

Despite being down two of their four left wingers, the Black & Gold were not interested in suffering a second straight loss or allowing the Caps to bully them in their own barn.

Charlie McAvoy made sure of that.

Foligno likely to return to the lineup as Boston aims to bounce back

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The Bruins will be aiming to rebound from their setback against the Hurricanes when they host the Washington Capitals on Thursday night at TD Garden. Boston is playing its fifth game of a seven-game homestand.

"Players like playing, especially when things are going well," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said of the uptick in the Bruins' schedule. "I think they'll be ready to go in terms of energy level. The other night obviously was a dud. It happens during the year; you've just got to monitor and make sure it doesn't creep in too often.

"That's what we addressed [on Wednesday], had a good, energized practice. It was optional today so guys can get their energy level back up for tonight."

O'Ree's Legacy will Live on in TD Garden Rafters

Hall of Famer hopes his No. 22 banner serves as inspiration for generations to come

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Willie O'Ree wouldn't accept that his hockey career was over.

Even after losing nearly all the vision in his right eye after being struck by a puck while playing for the Kitchener Canucks during the 1955-56 season, the New Brunswick native had no interest in calling it a career.
