The 2013 Boston Bruins season was the 89th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on November 4, 1924. The regular season was reduced from its usual 82 games to 48 due to a lockout. In the playoff, the Bruins eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins in four games to capture the Eastern Conference championship, but lost the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals to the Western Conference playoff champion Chicago Blackhawks in six games.

On June 3, 2012, it was announced that goaltender Tim Thomas was planning on taking a year off from hockey. Thomas had continued to make headlines for things outside of hockey, mainly his political views, which he demonstrated by boycotting the Bruins Stanley Cup visit to the White House and posting on his Facebook page. He was traded to the New York Islanders on Feb 7, 2013. Like the rest of the teams in the NHL, the Boston Bruins had their season delayed and shortened by the 2012–13 NHL lockout. The Bruins traded Benoit Pouliot in the off-season, and lost four other players to free-agency, but otherwise kept the team intact.
