Neely: Bruins 'Committed to Growing' Women's Hockey

Organization has entered into partnership with Boston Pride of NWHL

by Michael Tolvo and Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - As an Original Six franchise with a storied history and passionate fan base, the Boston Bruins have the ability to make a monumental impact on the growth of the sport. On Thursday, the organization made an announcement that will help to do just that.

The Bruins revealed that they have partnered with the Boston Pride of the National Women's Hockey League to support and grow the game of women's hockey in Massachusetts, as well as assist the Pride financially.

"We've always been committed to growing the sport," said Bruins president Cam Neely. "It makes all kinds of sense to get involved with the Pride and girls' hockey [and] women's hockey. We're excited about doing that and building this partnership and helping grow the game at the grass roots level for women and girls."

Wagner, Fourth Line Lead Bruins

Forward scores one day after grandfather's death as Boston beats Buffalo

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Chris Wagner remembered back to the countless drives to the rink and the endless support, from his youth hockey days on the South Shore all the way up to his Winter Classic appearance on New Year's Day.

Whether it was from the stands or from a TV thousands of miles away, his grandfather was always watching.

So when Wagner's goal just 20 seconds into Saturday night's game with Buffalo was wiped off the board for goalie interference, the Walpole native had a pretty good idea of what his grandfather's reaction would be.

Bruins Hit Midway Point With Momentum

As they return to health, Black & Gold on 100-point pace

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins have faced their share of adversity through 41 games this season. Injuries decimated Boston's roster throughout much of November and early December, leaving the Black & Gold at one point down to their 12th defenseman.

Boston played over a month without both Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron, while Charlie McAvoy has suited up for only 17 games thanks to two separate injuries.

But through it all, the Bruins have battled through. They remain entrenched in the Eastern Conference playoff picture - they're just 4 points behind Toronto for second place in the Atlantic - and are on a 100-point pace, an impressive feat given the number of key players they have been without for substantial periods of time.

Krejci Caps Special Day with Bruins Win

Center (two assists) teams up with DeBrusk on day his baby boy was born

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - David Krejci didn't have much time to think about hockey on Thursday.

While his teammates prepped for a tilt with the Calgary Flames, Krejci had his hands full with a much different - and more important - task. The veteran pivot's wife, Naomi, had given birth to a healthy baby boy, the couple's second child.

Despite his lack of sleep - with the exception of a quick pregame nap, approved by his wife - Krejci reported for work, and didn't miss a beat. The 32-year-old picked up two primary assists, one on each of linemate Jake DeBrusk's goals, to help the Bruins to a 6-4 victory over the Calgary Flames at TD Garden.

Pastrnak Staying Focused Following All-Star Nod

Winger wants to keep building his game

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - David Pastrnak is certainly excited for his first career All-Star nod, but for now he's keeping his focus on the ice. It's a mindset that is probably the main reason why he's headed to San Jose later this month in the first place.

"I'm having a good season, thanks to my linemates and teammates," said Pastrnak. "Just gonna enjoy it and focus on the season…trying to stay humble, but at the same time it's fun and my family is really happy and proud. That makes it a little bit more enjoyable that they're really happy about it and they recognize that."

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The Bruins arrived to Notre Dame Stadium for Tuesday's Winter Classic against Chicago donning some dapper vintage three-piece suits, scally caps and fedoras, and pocket watches, fully embracing the throwback nature of the event with a nod to the show 'Peaky Blinders', an English crime drama set in the aftermath of World War I.

"We had a Halloween party and a lot of guys dressed up as Peaky Blinders, and kind of by the end of the night we wanted to do that for the Winter Classic," said Patrice Bergeron. "That's how it started and we all loved the idea and ran with it."

"Selke," said Rask, who was casting an early vote for Bergeron as the league's top defensive forward, a title he has already claimed four times.

Just Like the Old Days

For Bruins, Winter Classic brings back the memories

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Torey Krug remembers it all so clearly.

The bite of the cold winter breeze nipping at his nose. The sound of his skates digging into the freshly frozen lake. And, of course, the taste of that hot chocolate that was waiting for him when he came in for dinner.

"There's something about playing outdoors and the brisk air hitting your face," said Krug, who grew up playing hockey on the lakes by his home in Livonia, Michigan. "You can paint the perfect picture."
