Friday Morning Skate: Fans, Start your rituals!

Playoff gameday morning is a different morning than all others. The playoffs are an emotional time and game days doubly so. Combine with not having had coffee yet and staying up late to watch a...

Thursday Morning Skate: One more day

Oh my goodness me, last night's games were a doozie. Almost-comeback by Dallas. OT in Tampa. Columbus's first ever lead in a playoff game. The playoffs are HERE, folks. And it rocks. Tonight's...

Wednesday Morning Skate: They're here!

Guys, its the playoffs. I'm certainly not tearing up in anticipation. Nope nope nope. Okay yeah. Today's games: Time Home Away TV 7pm Lightning Habs CNBC 7:30pm Penguins BlueJackets ...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Beardiquette

So, playoff beard growers, what's your etiquette like for trimming time? Morning of Game 1? Clinching a playoff spot? When you know your opponent? When the regular season ends? There's certainly...

Monday Morning Skate: Ready, Set, Wait

I suppose I shouldn't complain about having to wait a little extra time to see the Bruins in the playoffs. But I wish we had Bruins hockey a day or two earlier. On the other hand, its now the...

Friday Morning Skate: Charity Points

This is late. Sorry. Anyways, our intrepid contributor lilybraden is running the One Run for Boston and is trying to raise some money for that. It's a great cause. If you haven't already, give...

Thursday Morning Skate: Clinching

Good morning, folks. Tonight, the Bruins take on the Winnipeg Jets (I'd call them the Thrashers but I have too much respect for the sunbelt) in what might be one of Evander Kane's last games with...

Wednesday Morning Skate: 3 to go

Good morning, y'all. Shame that we lost last night. I have trouble getting mad about any part of it that can't be solved by booking Matt Cooke a one-way trip to our sun. Aw well, unfortunately...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Winnesota

Good morning, everyone. Tonight, Boston takes on Minnesota. Minnesota is, if they have the tie-breakers over Phoenix, in the playoffs as of last night's 1-0 win over Winnipeg. Winnipeg featuring...

Monday Morning Skate: No game tonight

A few of our lovely staff were looking at today's game schedule and pointed out that none of the games tonight are consensus "good" games. So I took a look myself. We've got 3 games: Calgary/New...

Friday Morning Skate: Happy Opening Day, Baseball!

As many of you are certainly aware, the Red Sox are having themselves a home opener today at like 2pm. Baseball is a great sport and I wish it well. For more on the Red Sox, check out the folks at...

Thursday Morning Skate: Jersey Weather

Good lord, it is beautiful out this morning. I'm eschewing jackets in favor of a hockey jersey. I suggest you all do the same, honestly. The bruins still haven't won in Detroit since like 2007 or...

Iginla adds "March 2014" to 1st star plaque

Jarome Iginla was listed as the NHL's first star yesterday as announced by the NHL. He was only listed as a star of the week once - the third star of the week for the week ending March 23 - during...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Jagr had 4 pts last night

No really its not an April fools joke or anything. Not a bad night for hockey all around. The jets gave up a 4-0 lead to lose in OT. Jagr did Jagr things. The dream is alive for devils fans still,...

Monday Mourning Skate: RIP Gourmet Express

If you've been to porter square, you've seen Gourmet express. If you've been in porter square late night, you've probably bought a slice of pizza or a breakfast sandwich or whatever from them. No...

Friday Morning Skate: Our Chief > your Blackhawks

I need a Dougie Hamilton jersey in my life, like, yesterday. Speaking of yesterday, the Charlottetown Islanders suffered a deserving fate for not naming their team the PEI Islanders or Prince...

Thursday Morning Skate: Gameday

Let me start by sending thoughts and prayers to the families, friends, and colleagues of Lieutenant Edward J. Walsh and Firefighter Michael R. Kennedy, who lost their lives fighting the back bay...

Wednesday Morning Skate: Forecast today: 80 below

Oh boy, is it ever a cold one today. Ice-burn freezing. Or maybe that's just the wind. Or the snow. I'm not a weather doctor. It's another off day. Of note: The top 4 wildcard teams in the east...

Tuesday Morning Skate: Don't worry, be Dougie

Well of course the Bruins lost last night. Oh well. Still got a point. Still in the top seed. Still not Montreal. Things don't seem so bad in perspective, now do they? We've got some time off...

Monday Morning Skate: Montreal

Goooood morning, Chowdaheads! We're still rolling and tonight we host Montreal. Here's hoping for Doug Murray Ice Time Leader tonight. A few notes: Buy a Play Like Carl t-shirt and be cooler...

Friday Morning Skate: D.B. Cooper

Good morning and happy Friday to all! Only 14 hours until the Bruins put their streak to the test against Patrick Roy's Colorado Avalanche. We last saw them in like the second week of the season. ...

Thursday Morning Skate: Streaky Clean

Good Morning. This off-time really lets you revel in how well the Bruins have been playing lately. Is Colorado the other shoe? We'll see. It barely matters, because the Bruins are 4 standings...

Wednesday Morning Skate: No I in Iginla

Another day, another win, another all-time milestone by one Jarome Iginla. He's been a pretty decent pickup, huh? Kid's got a future. Last night he tied Bucyk for 25th on the all-time goal-scorer...

Tuesday Morning Skate: A New Era

It finally happened. The Boston Bruins have now beaten every NHL team at home. What a streak! Of course, it would be more impressive if the streak was against more playoff teams, but what can you...

Monday Morning Skate: O frabjous day!

Goooooood morning Chowdaheads! Its that special time of year again! That's right: its gameday vs Minnesota! As you all probably know, Minnesota is my second favorite team so its nice to be able to...

Friday Morning Skate: P(a)i(lle) day!

Happy Pi day, or as some prefer around here, Daniel Paille day! I hope you're all having pie and whatnot. Or, I guess, Paella. I dunno. Work with me, here. Thing I though of last night, watching...
