Game 3 Thoughts: Patrice Bergeron The Hero in Double Overtime Thriller

JetBlue Pilot Asks if Baby Crying on Plane was Sidney Crosby

As if the Penguins getting beat down 6-1 on home ice was not already enough, the star player is now the butt-end of a slew of jokes. During Tuesday’s plane ride back to Boston, Bruins reporter Joey McDonald (@ESPNJoeyMac) tweeted, “Baby crying on flight. Pilot comes on and asks if it’s Sidney Crosby.” Bruins fans continue […]

Tuukka Rask, David Krejci Quieting The Critics

Through two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, Tuukka Rask is finally getting the credit he deserves.

Rask came up with some big saves in game seven after letting up […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 13

Just one week remains in the season, and there’s still plenty left to play.

That leaves Boston with six games games to play between now […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 12

Just two weeks remain in the season, and teams are starting to clinch spots. Time is quickly running out for teams to make their moves or break into the top 16. The Blackhawks, Ducks and Penguins continue to sit easy of course (and are now joined by Vancouver as a solid #3), but it’s not […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 11

Less than a month remains in the abbreviated season, but the situation remains heated. Plenty of divisions remain up for grabs.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 7

The season is half over for many teams, and almost everyone is still as close as ever. Boston and Montreal are fighting over the East, while the Rangers and Devils are still trying to hold off the Jets and Islanders. Out West, #3 and #11 are separated by just four points, so just about everyone […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 6

We’re approaching the halfway point of the abbreviated season, and things are still entertaining as ever.

And with the value […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Five weeks into the season, and Chicago remains just about the only sure thing right now. The East is stacked top to bottom, and the West isn’t much different. Even the other teams on the outside are shuffling around, trying to make their moves and occasionally making headway. It’s still tough as ever to predict […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 4

We’re already a month into the season, and things are still pretty close. Chicago and Anaheim are starting to carve a niche for themselves, but they still have a ways to go, and all other slots are still very much in play. Ties are plentiful, and both #8 seeds are very much in the air, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 3

Three weeks into the season now, and while the Blackhawks have started to build a bit of a lead for themselves, the rest of the field is up for grabs. Each conference has a team better than at least one division leader, so teams are jumping all over each other. The standings still have a […]
