Caron recalled from Providence
“From what I’ve been told, he’s been really good the last 5-6 games,” Claude Julien said. “He’s a player that’s been here and has got some experience.”

Bruins beat Maple Leafs, 4-2
“I knew it wasn’t going to be pretty,” said coach Claude Julien. “When you lose two games the way we did, I didn’t expect us, all of a sudden, to be this great team. I knew it was going to be tough. But what I wanted to see from our team is us battling through it. We did. They forechecked hard. We were able to get the puck out eventually. The goalie made some good saves. We battled and we found a way to score some goals the way we want to score them — with good net-front presence.”

Bruins place inconsistent Bourque on waivers
“We’re certainly hoping not to lose him,” said coach Claude Julien. “It doesn’t mean his time here is over. He knows that it took a little bit of time to find his game. It was coming around a little bit. He knows that his last game wasn’t the best, either. But when you look at the way he played in Providence, he’s certainly a guy you can’t count off your lineup here. Right now, it could be just a bump along the way. If we needed a guy to be called up, he’s certainly a guy I would have no issues seeing back here.”

Khudobin gets saves in relief
“It’s a big win for everybody. We lost a couple games, so we had to recover, get back on track,” Khudobin said. “We have to continue to win and keep getting points, because the schedule is getting tougher and tougher.”

Because of that, coach Claude Julien has maintained that Khudobin will be seeing plenty of action. Rask is the established starter, but the better Khudobin can play, the better the Bruins will be.

“It certainly makes our team feel a lot better when you know, no matter who you put in net, they’re going to give you a solid performance,” Julien said. “That’s what you want and you hope to get from your backup goaltender. He played well tonight.”


Bruins hold off Leafs to snap two-game skid
“We’re certainly not perfect right now and we’re certainly not firing on all cylinders. Right now, we’re laboring through it,” said B’s coach Claude Julien. “But the work ethic was there tonight.”

For B’s, result two good .
So there. The Bruins emerged with a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs last night at the Garden, and all is right again in the Boston Sports World, Hockey Division.

No, the Bruins didn’t push the Leafs all the way to the Tobin. This victory was workmanlike, not masterful. They scored enough goals to get the two points, but not enough to make a statement. They didn’t make noise. Instead, they made sense — which in this case means playing a mostly consistent 60 minutes of hockey.


Right steps for Tyler Seguin
In most circumstances, Switzerland is a lovely place for a visitor from North America to spend a couple of months. But maybe not so much if you’re a young hockey player still trying to figure out the rigors and demands of a sound, two-way game.

You can bet Tyler Seguin had himself a grand time during his lockout stint in the Swiss league. Life, and scoring goals, were easy. Perhaps too easy.

And perhaps the 21-year-old brought some bad habits back to the NHL


Chiarelli ‘close’ to scoring Swede Carl Soderberg .
Chiarelli told the Herald he’s still waiting on final clearance from the league to make sure the move would be allowed, but he’s optimistic.

“We’ve been trying for five years to get him over here and it’s close,” said Chiarelli, who said the move wouldn’t stop him from continuing to explore the trade market. “He’s had a hell of a year and he’s grown into a big strong kid now, a man, and he’s told us that he feels he’s ready now. He’s a good player, big strong player. There are still some steps to go, but it looks good.”


Khudobin helps Boston Bruins end losing streak
“You’ve got to give him credit,” Marchand said. “(Khudobin) came in to a clutch situation and played very well.”

Fighting still part of the game.

The division rivals went toe-to-toe with one another and took less than four minutes to break out the fisticuffs, with Leafs defenceman Mark Fraser squaring off with Adam McQuaid.

The message was clear: Let the debate happen elsewhere.

“I think you really have to understand the game and kind of understand the (dressing) room to know what it’s like to be on a bench when a guy fights,” Bruins forward Brad Marchand said before the 4-2 victory over Toronto. “For fans that think that fighting has no part of the game, they don’t really know what they’re talking about.”

And that was that.



You tell 'em I'M coming...

and Hell's coming with me, you hear?! ... Hell's coming with me!
