The Boston Bruins came within one win of a Stanley Cup triumph last spring, losing to the eventual champion, St. Louis Blues in a hard-fought seven-game series. The deciding game coming on home ice at the TD Garden, which makes it all the more painful for Patrice Bergeron and co.

Welcome back into Ice Picks, in our last edition our headliner, Evgeni Malkin, was a late scratch Thursday due to an illness. This core selection ended up being a wash, and in turn, scratched out any potential of cashing. Lesson learned, always check updates before puck drop. On to tonight. We have the L.A. Kings visiting the Bruins, Buffalo at Toronto, Minnesota at Vegas and just one piece coming from the Anaheim at Philadelphia matchup. Y’all know the drill, it’s time for Tuesday’s Ice Picks!

Pasta la Vista, Baby! When the Boston Bruins selected talented Czech winger David Pastrnak with the 25th overall pick back in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, they knew right from the start that they were getting a special player. The fact that “Pasta”, as he’s so commonly referred to by his Bruins teammates, went so very late in the first round is still a mystery to so many who cover the National Hockey League on a day-to-day basis. Fast-forward to his 6th NHL season, and we’re now talking about one of the most elusive and dynamic forwards in the NHL who is rapidly becoming (if he isn’t already) one of the finest players in the sport.
Saturday night is usually a big night in NHL and tonight is no different as we have 11 games to choose from on the main slate. Tonight the focus will be Boston hosting the Devils, the Jets and Blackhawks in Chicago, the surging Carolina Hurricanes looking to stay undefeated versus the Blue Jackets and the Maple Leafs looking to rebound at Detroit. Let’s drop the puck and make some Ice Picks. Continue reading →
After the signing of his fellow defensive compatriot, Charlie McAvoy, it was only a matter of time before we saw Brandon Carlo’s name in the headlines for the Boston Bruins. After a summer of uncertainty, and the start of the 2019/20 NHL campaign just around the corner, it was evident that Bruins general manager Don Sweeney and his management group had some work to do and business to conduct. He did more than just “conduct”: business, and inked Carlo to a two-year bridge contract extension, worth a total of $5.7M. Here’s how both the Bruins as an organization and Carlo reached an agreement.
After bursting onto the scene in October 2017, Charlie McAvoy and the Boston Bruins were on the clock as training camps from across the NHL kicked off. The 21-year old, smooth-skating defenseman was one of four high profile restricted free agent blue-liners this summer, joining teammate, Brandon Carlo, and the likes of Zach Werenski and Ivan Provorov. It took a few months, but McAvoy and the Bruins reached a 3-year/$14.7M contract extension.
Boston, Massachusetts. One of the most successful sports cities in all of North America. The city where the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, and even the New England Patriots can flex their muscles to the rest of the die-hard sports fans from different cities across the U.S. who can only wish for such supremacy and bragging rights. Enter the good old Boston Bruins. The big, bad Bruins, Killer B’s, Bears, or Black and Gold. A historic, original-six franchise who hockey fans either love or hate…unless you’re from Boston, of course. Continue reading →
After the St. Louis Blues dominated Game 2, the hockey world was interested to see how the Boston Bruins would respond. They sent a message tonight in an offensive Game 3 from the Bruins. Let’s take a look back at an interesting Game 3.
