FERENCE WON'T BE SUSPENDED FOR HIS COLLISION WITH JEFF HALPERN

GAME 7: DÉJÀ VU ALL OVER AGAIN AS HORTON'S OT STRIKE BURIES THE HABS

GAME 6: MENTAL MISTAKES DOOM B'S AS HABS FORCE A SEVENTH GAME

MICHAEL RYDER: JACK OF ALL TRADES
  • 4/26/11: Ever since "The Save," Michael Ryder has been all over the place: movie deals, clothing lines, rap groups...you name it, and everyone's favorite Newfie-sniper has been doing it. After all, once you show the kind of versatility Ryder displayed, doors open up for you. BHN had exclusive access to Ryder's various activities, so be sure to check out the gallery of his recent exploits. (There are six pictures up now, and more will be added throughout the day.) BHN: Michael Ryder, Jack of All Trades


GAME 5: HORTON'S DOUBLE-OT STRIKE PUTS B'S WITHIN ONE WIN OF ADVANCING

GAME 4: B'S "RYDE" THE HOT HAND TO A WIN, EVEN SERIES AT TWO

GAME 3: SIGNS OF LIFE AS B'S SCORE EARLY, HOLD ON LATE TO BEAT HABS
  • 4/19/11: I said late on Sunday night that we were going to find out last night if this edition of the Bruins has any teeth, any heart, or any pride. It appears that the answer is "yes;" not quite a resounding "YES" but a "yes" nonetheless. The B's showed that they aren't quite ready to go quietly into the night, as they scored first, second, AND third to jump out to a 3-0 lead (gulp) and then held on down the stretch to defeat the Habs in Montreal by a score of 4-2. The B's got the all-important first goal just seconds after killing an early too many men on the ice penalty when Dennis Seidenberg made an excellent play to keep the puck in at the attacking blue line. He then spun the puck down the wall to Patrice Bergeron, who winged a pass across the slot to a wide-open David Krejci. Krejci's one-timer beat Carey Price, and the B's had their first lead of the series. Just ten minutes later, Nathan Horton scored his first career playoff goal when he threw a puck from behind the goal line off of Price's back; the puck then trickled across the goal line just before a Montreal defenseman swept it out, and it was 2-0 Bruins. Rich Peverley took advantage of a Price gaffe early in the second, when the Montreal netminder's clearing attempt hit a pile of bodies and landed right on Peverley's stick; he snapped the puck into the open net for a 3-0 lead. 3-0? Uh oh...and the B's nearly broke their fans' hearts again, as Tim Thomas let in two very soft five-hole goals to cut the Bruin lead to one with just under 16 minutes to go in the game. From then on in, it was "batten down the hatches" time, as the B's held the fort and got two sparkling saves from Thomas late in the third (one on Scott Gomez in the crease and a stellar kick-save on Andrei Kostitsyn) to preserve the lead. Chris Kelly's empty-netter with 26 seconds left sealed the deal, and sent the Bell Centre crowd home quietly. It was the B's first win in Montreal since February of 2010, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Mark Recchi and Bergeron each had two assists and finished a combined plus-5; Zdeno Chara, playing in his first game back from some kind of illness, chipped in an assist and was a plus-1.

GAME 2: EARLY MISTAKES PUT THE B'S IN A BIG HOLE

GAME 1: GIONTA & PRICE PUSH HABS PAST THE B'S

YOUR BRUINS-HABS PREVIEW: IN LIMERICKS AND MSPAINT
Header
  • 4/14/11: Yes, the playoffs are finally here. For my series preview, I decided there wasn't much that hadn't already been said: Thomas vs. Price, speed vs. strength, etc. I couldn't really come up with something new and groundbreaking, so I decided to do it a different way: with limericks and with MSPaint. Limericks are awesome, and there's something stupidly funny about crudely-drawn MSPaint artwork. So I combined those two with the Bruins and Habs to make something pretty outrageous. It's a rhyming preview that also features beautifully-crude drawings; what could be better? BHN: Bruins-Habs Series Preview
