    Bruins get back to winning just in time for a break

    Bruins get back to winning just in time for a break

    The 3-game losing streak is over and everyone fells better heading into the All-Star break and a bye week after beating the Toronto Maple Leafs.
    The Boston Bruins got offense from some unlikely characters to get things going, then Pavel Zacha iced it with a pair in the third period.
    There's no question the Bruins are the top team in the NHL at the moment, with the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup this spring.
    First, some well deserved time off for all.

    Bruins 'ecstatic' over record to date, but please beat the Leafs

    Bruins 'ecstatic' over record to date, but please beat the Leafs

    Whatever happens tonight in Toronto, the Boston Bruins know they're in a good spot.
    "We're ecstatic with what our record is and how well we've consistently played," said Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery on Tuesday.
    BUT, beating the Maple Leafs tonight to avoid a 4-game losing streaking heading into the All-Star break and the bye week would be very nice, even if Auston Matthews is out of the lineup.
    Ian McLaren previews the games, discusses Boston's mindset amid the losing streak, and brings you all the latest on the black and gold.

    What Horvat to the Islanders means for the Bruins

    What Horvat to the Islanders means for the Bruins

    In a bit of a shocker, Bo Horvat was traded to the New York Islanders.
    Ian McLaren breaks down the deal, and discusses what it means for the Boston Bruins.
    It's a big name off the trade board at an asking price the Bruins weren't likely to meet, and thankfully he's not been traded to a true contender in the East (no offense, Islanders).
    Plus, a look at the Eastern Conference power rankings and the Bruins are calling up a couple players for tomorrow's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Bruins on 3-game losing streak: There will be adversity!

    Bruins on 3-game losing streak: There will be adversity!

    The Boston Bruins have now lost 3 games in a row, and they've been defeated by three pretty good teams in the Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, and Carolina Hurricanes.
    "We talked about facing adversity at some point in the year and here we are," said Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron. 
    It all comes with the Bruins still firmly in first place, and with a long break coming up. Big picture? It's not that big of a deal ... yet.
    The power play needs work, and some turnovers need to be cut down on, but, as Bergeron says, "We have to face that as a team together and roll up our sleeves and learn from what hasn't been there the last few games."
    Next up: the Toronto Maple Leafs, then the All-Star break and a bye week.

Good pod

Ian seems to have a sincere voice. I don’t understand the negativity. I’m a Bruins fan and I like this pod.

A New Host Is Needed

The information is good, but unfortunately, this is a perfect example of just because anyone CAN host a podcast, that doesn’t mean they SHOULD.

The host stops talking mid sentence, which makes it incredibly difficult to follow his thought process.

Not a bird ,

Killa Bees

Good pod to unwind to at the end of the day.
