The number of truly iconic hockey pictures is surprisingly small. The sport is notoriously difficult to photograph, thanks to the fast-paced action, the elusive puck, and some unique space, proximity, and lighting restrictions. There’s Denis Brodeur (yes, Martin’s father) and his shot of Paul Henderson celebrating…
Red Wings fans have a tradition of throwing octopuses onto the ice, as the creature with eight arms used to represent the number of victories required to earn the Stanley Cup. During Thursday’s game against the Bruins in Boston, one Red Wings fan chucked the damn thing onto the ice in the third period, for no clear…

Here’s a fight between Tyler Randell and Ryan Reaves, during which Bruins play-by-play man Jack Edwards sings “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” for some reason. I guess Edwards isn’t afraid to say Merry Christmas.
The above video of Bruins forward Chris Kelly suffering a non-contact injury against the Stars tonight doesn’t look too bad—though you never know with ligament and joint injuries—and after a few minutes of examination he hobbled off the ice. But as it turns out, the injury was indeed very, very bad, and very, very…
The Bruins visited Boston Children’s Hospital today and, in the spirit of Halloween, wore costumes. Everyone loves Minions, right? Your 7-year-old nephew named Zack definitely loves Minions.
The Bruins’ 14th overall draft pick Jake DeBrusk is already getting notice for his skills in development camp. The 18-year-old winger pulled off an impressive behind-the-back flick on goalie Zane McIntyre today.
New Bruins general manager Don Sweeney definitely got aggressive with some moves before tonight’s NHL draft. The end goal of those actions is still unclear, though.
The Bruins have traded Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for their 15th, 45th, and 52nd picks in tonight’s NHL Draft. Maybe new general manager Don Sweeney plans on using those picks to trade up, because right now, the swap doesn’t seem to benefit Boston. [Bruins]
Celtics center and amateur reporter Kelly Olynyk may have unintentionally leaked some news Wednesday night about Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton’s injury.
The above play by Boston's Milan Lucic was ruled no goal on the ice, as the referees determined that Lucic kicked the puck into the back of the net. But upon video replay that ruling was overturned, as it was ruled there was no "distinct" kicking motion from Lucic. NHL rules say that a goal should be disallowed…
David Pastrnak, a talented winger taken in the first round by Boston last summer, is already making an impact with the big club. The rookie has 15 points in 24 games since being recalled on Jan. 8, and has slotted in nicely in the Bruins' top six. He's also just 18 years old, and someone needs to show him how to find…
I wish we had a close-up of Michael Grabner's face to see the disbelief that he did not score a goal spread across it.
I went to go look up Cedric Paquette's height and weight, figuring a "Cedric Paquette is tiny. Zdeno Chara is 6'9", 255 pounds. The result when they fought was predictable." lede would be pretty good. Except I learned from Hockey Reference that Cedric Paquette is actually 6'1", 198 pounds: Zdeno Chara is just that…
Notorious Bruins homer Jack Edwards was in rare form on Saturday night. If you missed it, the NESN broadcaster lost his shit after the puck hit the netting above the glass, play continued, and about 90 seconds later, the Blue Jackets scored. Edwards starts reaching core instability around the two-minute mark of the…
This kid is apparently six years old, and that is an unsettling piece of information given the fact that he sounds like a nine-week-old baby when he gets upset. Anyway, he's mad because he's just watched his beloved Bruins go down 1-0 to the Leafs in the first period.
This is only the fourth goal in Boston Bruin Seth Griffith's young career, but he may never score a better one. Turned around by Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky, Griffith still managed to get his stick on the puck and poke it into the goal. This came after Griffith blocked a shot on the other end, and carried the…
It's early, but Colorado Avalanche center Danny Briere has already given us one of the craziest highlights of the year, swatting home a game-winning goal against the Bruins today with just milliseconds remaining on the clock.
