Fourth Line Lights Spark on Bruins Comeback

Acciari's early third-period goal propelled Boston to 3-2 win over Oilers

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins /

EDMONTON, Alberta - The frustration had been building a bit for the Bruins during their swing through Western Canada. Despite splitting the first two games of the trip, Boston was clearly snake bitten, potting just three goals on 77 shots - and a handful of clankers off iron.

That trend continued on Tuesday night, as the Bruins peppered Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot with 31 shots through two periods - while hitting two more posts - and had nothing to show for it.

It appeared that Boston was on its way to yet another maddening finish. But sometimes all you need is a bounce - and a little bit of grit.

And that's exactly what the Bruins got.

Sweeney: Holden Deal Bolsters Back End Depth

Veteran defenseman acquired from Rangers for O'Gara, draft pick

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins /

EDMONTON, Alberta - The Bruins learned the hard way last spring that a team can never have enough defensemen. Injuries to Torey Krug, Brandon Carlo, Adam McQuaid, and Colin Miller left Boston dipping deep into its defense depth during its first-round playoff series with the Ottawa Senators.

As such, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney wants to make sure his troops are well equipped to handle such hardship if they intend to make a deep postseason run this time around.

DeBrusk Excited to Play in Hometown

Rookie will suit up for first game in Edmonton as an NHLer

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins /

EDMONTON, Alberta - Jake DeBrusk was just nine years old when the Oilers surged to the Stanley Cup Final in the spring of 2006. But the Edmonton native remembers well watching his favorite team fall a game short of championship lore.

"I was here for a couple tough years, but I was also here for their Cup run," DeBrusk recalled. "My favorite player was Ryan Smyth. I think that he was just the ultimate Oiler. There was a game in the playoffs that he got stitches and was bleeding and came back and scored in overtime.

"I remember going to those games, one against Detroit when they won in Game 6. [Smith], [Ales] Hemsky, [Sergei] Samsonov. I remember that whole team."
