Teammates battle for right to rep Bruins in NHL 14 cover vote
EA Sports has begun the process of determining who will be its cover boy for the next edition of its NHL video game -- and in Boston, that process begins with a battle:

Zdeno Chara vs. Tyler Seguin.

Eventually the contest will whittle it down to just one player league-wide who'll be the face of NHL 14, though EA has opted to begin the contest by pitting teammates against each other to see who advances with the right to represent the franchise among the broader competition.


Jagr and Doug Hamilton lead Bruins in matinee victory
Like a bunch of college kids cramming for exams at semester’s end, the Bruins returned to the books Sunday and scrubbed up on the tried-and-true defensive lessons they employed with such precision earlier this season, turning hard work and attention to detail into a 3-0 victory over the Panthers in a pre-playoff test at the Garden.

Bruins give law enforcement officers the shirts off their backs

"Post game was beyond special today," Tweeted defenseman Andrew Ference, adding that he gave his jerseys to an officer who has been a friend for years, and who had taken him to Ranger training/sniper school. "I was so honored to meet everyone after the game and get to chat for a bit."

Rask backstops Bruins to redemptive 3-0 shutout over Panthers
Tuukka Rask was eager for a shot at redemption after acknowledging that he played poorly in the Bruins’ 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh Saturday. Lucky for the goaltender he didn’t have to wait long for that chance.

Rask found himself back in net for Sunday’s matinee against the Panthers after receiving a reassuring text from coach Claude Julien Saturday night: “You’re back in there tomorrow.’’


Chara OK after collision in third period Sunday against Panthers
With 5:15 to go in Sunday’s 3-0 win over the Panthers in a matinee at the Garden, the Bruins’ playoff hopes were seemingly doubled over in front of the Florida bench. Boston captain Zdeno Chara was down, and remained down for quite a while, before straightening up under his own power and making his way to the penalty box.

“The last thing you need,’’ said coach Claude Julien, able to exhale as he finally saw Big Z scoot across ice to the sin bin, “is those kinds of injuries and those kinds of penalties. So maybe we dodged a bullet, but those are the things you fear at this time of year — you don’t want those unnecessary injuries to happen.’’


Bruins step up game, win
Normally, a victory over the worst team in the league would not be a big reason to celebrate for a team that believes itself to be a Stanley Cup contender.

But with the Bruins struggling to find their game amidst the turmoil and emotional aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, it was quite understandable that there were some happy faces yesterday at the Garden.


After coach calls him out, Tuukka Rask posts shutout
Rarely during his six-year tenure as coach of the Bruins has coach Claude Julien singled out one of his goaltenders for criticism, for one very good reason: In Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask, the B’s boasted probably the best duo in the National Hockey League — guys who didn’t lose many games for their team, and won a great many.

So it was noteworthy Saturday when Julien assigned a share of blame on Rask after the B’s 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, saying, “You’re not going to point a finger, but your goaltender’s got to make some saves, too, at the right time.”

Rask was even more blunt in his self-criticism.


Bruins ride Tuukka Rask to shutout victory
BOSTON — So honesty – blunt, brutal honesty – really is the best policy, after all.

Bruins coach Claude Julien made no secret on Saturday afternoon of his opinion that Tuukka Rask hadn’t played well enough to help his team beat the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Julien was a little late to that party, though.

“It’s not too often I cost us a game, and today I did, I think,” Rask had already said after a 3-2 loss in which he felt at fault on two goals.


Dougie Hamilton determined to make most of late-season opportunities
BOSTON — He may be a sure thing, career-wise, but Dougie Hamilton has figured out there’s no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to playing time for the rest of this season.

“With the rotation we have now with our defense, I don’t know how many games I’m going to play,” Hamilton said Sunday morning, before the Bruins hosted the Florida Panthers at TD Garden.

“We have nine defensemen. You just have to play when you’re asked to play, and play your best – hopefully to get a spot in the playoffs.”



You tell 'em I'M coming...

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

Thanks for updates Wally. I wish wish Bergeron would get some consideration for the NHL 14 cover, although he's not really the sexy, highlight reel player they seem to look for.

Honestly this team depends on Bergeron far more than Seguin at the moment. He doesn't always get the recognition he deserves because the majority of his work isn't reflected in the stat sheet. Love Bergeron though-love his work ethic and his game.

I'm surprised it's not between Chara and Bergeron as well. Bergeron would get my vote as the Bruins player to put up there. MVP of this team as far as I'm concerned.

great news stories there.. Thanks alot for the read.
