CSN New England "Milan Lucic almost escaped the Bell Centre with full marks for good behavior as all eyes watched him after his threats to Alexei Emelin and Dale Weise in the handshake line at the end of last year’s playoff series.

Pro Hockey Talk "A fan inside the Bell Centre in Montreal somehow came to the decision to shine a green laser pointer at Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask during Thursday’s game against the Canadiens.

CSN New England "The Bruins needed their first win in Detroit in nearly seven years, and they needed to score some goals to alleviate mounting pressure. It may have taken some extra time, but they accomplished both goals in their 3-2 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena. The win snapped..." October 16
Boston Herald "Can Seth Griffith be a legitimate first-line right winger, or at least represent a viable stopgap measure until a better option shakes loose on the trade market? Can Ryan Spooner and Matt Fraser establish themselves as NHL players? What are the best defensive pairs from the seven blueliners..." October 15
Pro Hockey Talk "After a slow start to the season in which they’ve scored four goals in four games, the Bruins are rolling the dice on a veteran sniper. Simon Gagne, who was with the B’s in training camp and preseason, has agreed to a one-year deal worth $600,000, per ESPN. Gagne, 34, didn’t play at all last..." October 14
CSN New England "It was a triumphant return for Jarome Iginla. His Colorado Avalanche literally pulled off a last-second, 2-1 win over the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Monday afternoon, and Iginla had a couple of shot attempts and a hit to go along with a plus-1 rating (he was on the ice for Jamie McGinn’s..." October 14

Boston Herald "Coach Claude Julien all but promised some kind of move after Saturday night’s eye-opening loss to the Washington Capitals and, when the Bruins reconvened for a battle-heavy practice at the Garden yesterday morning, there was indeed a new face in the lineup as well as a rearrangement of a few deck..." October 13
Coach was asked whether Krejci will be good to go for tomorrow's game; still TBD, but he "hopes so" ^JI

CSN New England "It might be easy to blame the new guys added to the Bruins mix this season when the team is trying to wrap it’s collective mind around the team’s sluggish start to the season. After all Matt Fraser and Ryan Spooner haven’t contributed anything offensively, and fourth liners Craig Cunningham and..." October 12
CSN Washington "Alex Ovechkin netted his first and second goals of the season in the opening period, Mike Green celebrated his return to the lineup with a power-play goal and Nicklas Backstrom, John Carlson and Andre Burakovsky each picked up two assists for the Capitals, who finished off a dominant effort..." October 12
Boston Globe "The qualifier was there, and it loomed over the statement. Asked about his defensive rotation Wednesday, Bruins coach Claude Julien said, “A top-four role, I think there’s a lot of guys that can play in those roles. Torey Krug is a good defenseman, so is Adam McQuaid, when he’s healthy.” And..." October 11
Detroit News "The Red Wings certainly hope there will be plenty more of these in the 81 games left. There were plenty of things that went right for the Red Wings as they defeated the Boston Bruins — the team that ended the Red Wings' season last April — 2-1 in Thursday's regular season opener. Two..." October 10
CSN New England "It wasn’t pretty for either team as so many opening nights go for hockey teams, but the good guys won in the end. Chris Kelly beat Michael Del Zotto in a one-on-one battle in front on a loose puck, and was able to push the puck past Steve Mason in the final minutes for the rousing 2-1 victory..." October 09
USA Today "Unemployed NHL tough guy Krys Barch fondly recalls a few seasons ago when he was considered essential to the Dallas Stars, especially against a fighting team like the Boston Bruins.

ESPN Boston "The Boston Bruins have placed top-line center David Krejci on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury he suffered in the second period of Saturday's final preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden. Per the collective bargaining agreement, Krejci will miss a minimum of seven..." October 08
Stanley Cup Of Chowder "So, after much roster hemming and hawing, Ryan Spooner is sticking with the Bruins, as is Providence Punchisizer Bobby Robins. Surprising no one after the good noise about him this preseason, Matt Fraser also made the team. David Krejci has been banged up, and we hope it's not serious. The Bruins..." October 07
Claude Julien said David Krejci's minor issue suffered vs DET hasnt healed as well as they would've hoped. He was missing from practice tday
CSN New England "Johnny Boychuk took a day to collect his thoughts, commiserate a little bit and simply wrap his brain around the fact that he was no longer a member of the Boston Bruins. But the B’s defenseman woke up on Sunday morning, and phoned CSNNE.com as he was driving to TD Garden to pick up his equipment..." October 06

BOS puts Jordan Caron on waivers.
Julien says he hasn't come to a conclusion about Gagne. But the coach used the word "intrigued" a couple times. He's my 13th F if not yours.
David Pastrnak cleared medically, and will play tonight vs Isles. B's havent ruled out keeping him into reg season to get longer look at him
CSN New England "Peter Chiarelli admitted as he chatted with the media Monday afternoon that this has been more of “a tiring preseason” than he’d like. That shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise, though. A portion of his normal summer work spilled over into training camp, which he finally completed Monday..." October 01
CSN New England "He didn’t factor into the scoring when it was all said and done on Tuesday night, but AHL enforcer Bobby Robins undoubtedly put his imprint on the preseason game between the Bruins and Islanders. The B’s ultimately lost by a 5-3 score to drop their preseason record to 2-2-1 in training camp, but..." October 01
Boston Herald "General manager Peter Chiarelli made it clear yesterday, he never considered trading away one or more of the Bruins’ veterans explicitly to clear salary-cap space in order to give free agents Reilly Smith and Torey Krug deals more to their liking. “I’m sure that’s what a lot of people thought,”..." September 30

CSN New England "The Bruins returned to the practice ice on Sunday morning, and it appears that they’ve again whittled down their numbers based on the bodies on the ice at TD Garden. David Pastrnak made his return to practice, and a number of the younger players – Ben Sexton, Brian Ferlin and Seth Griffith..." September 28
Boston Herald "For Matt Fraser, Seth Griffith and Jordan Caron, it was a pleasant visit to the nation’s capital, even if the Bruins did lose a two-goal lead and end up dropping a 5-4 decision in overtime to the Capitals. The Caps had a far more veteran lineup, so it was a good opportunity for a lot of young..." September 27
CSN New England "It might have ended with a nice play for a meaningless preseason empty net goal, but the full body of work for Simon Gagne was much improved in his second exhibition game wearing the Black and Gold. The 34-year-old notched the empty net goal to make it a 2-0 final win for the Bruins over the..." September 25
CSN New England "Matt Fraser has already said many times in the last few weeks that he doesn’t want to be a “one hit wonder” from last year’s playoffs.

Looks like Ville Leino is with David Krejci and Matt Fraser, in place of David Pastrnak.
No David Pastrnak on the roster, you might notice. He "tweaked" his shoulder yesterday.
CSN New England "It was entirely predictable that David Warsofsky was paired with Kevan Miller on the first day of on-ice sessions at Bruins training camp at Ristuccia Arena. The 24-year-old defenseman was essentially skating in the spot that might have otherwise been occupied by fellow puck-moving offensive..." September 20
Boston Herald "Look at the career statistics for Loui Eriksson and you note recent seasons as a Dallas Star in which he scored 71, 73 and 71 points or potted 36, 29, 27 and 26 goals. Then you look at his production last year, his first as a Bruin: 10 goals, 37 points. Obviously, two significant concussions..." September 20
Chiarelli at State of Bs on Krug/Smith: "My intention is to have the players playing for the Bruins. Theyre not going anywhere" #BruinsTalk
CSN New England "With the contract status of Torey Krug and Reilly Smith up in the air, perhaps it’s not such a bad thing that veteran forwards Simon Gagne and Ville Leino will be in Bruins training camp on veteran tryout agreements. Both players provide veteran competition for the open forward spots, and give the..." September 17
Boston Herald "Not showing up for the start of training camp used to be a standard negotiating ploy for key Bruins free agents who believed they were being shortchanged by general managers Harry Sinden and Mike O’Connell.

Edmonton Journal "One of the summer’s most persistent rumours was the idea of a trade between Edmonton and Boston that would see native son Johnny Boychuk join the Oilers in time for the 2014-15 season. It was a deal that in theory made sense for both sides, as Boston could free up the dollars it needs to clear to..." September 16
