Looking Back and Ahead at the Bruins

By on May 3, 2017 at 4:04pm

Playoff hockey returned to Boston this spring and boy it felt good.

The Boston Bruins returned to the Stanley Cup playoffs this season after a two-year absence and although they were knocked out in six games by the Ottawa Senators, the B’s accomplished what many wanted from the onset of the campaign:

Playoff hockey. Continue reading Looking Back and Ahead at the Bruins »

Before the May 9 deadline, the New England Patriots issued an unrestricted free agent tender to LeGarrette Blount, thus potentially keeping their leader of touchdowns and rushing yards from last season. Continue reading Do the New England Patriots need LeGarrette Blount next season? »

The New England Patriots have set down a marker for the rest of the NFL with their off-season moves, as they bid to claim back-to-back Super Bowls.

Bill Belichick’s men staged the largest comeback in the history of the big game to defeat the Atlanta Falcons at NRG Stadium, winning the crown for the fifth time. Continue reading Patriots Look Poised For Another Super Bowl Run »

Boston Red Sox Opening Day Edition Of Connelly’s Top Ten

 

 

In a down year for college basketball in Massachusetts (wait — isn’t it always a bad year?), Harvard University stands as the state’s only shot at making an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Crimson, at 18-9 as of Monday, will play as the No. 2 seed in the Ivy League’s first conference tournament featuring the top four teams in the league.

Harvard will likely need to catapult past Princeton (21-6 overall, including 14-0 in the conference).

If they’re lucky enough to get in, the team’s odds to win the NCAA Tournament would be extremely long, to say the least.

For what it’s worth, Boston University had a good season, too, but lost in the Patriot League Conference Semi-finals Sunday and certainly won’t be an at-large team.

Otherwise in Massachusetts? Trash. UMass Amherst is 14-17 (4-14 in A-10 play) and Boston College is 9-22 (2=16 in the ACC). Yikes.

With many fans not willing to trust GM Don Sweeney to make a solid move at the NHL level, the red-hot Bruins did not make a huge splash at the league’s deadline Thursday, though they did sneak in a minor move that improved the team’s forward depth.

The B’s acquired veteran winger Drew Stafford from Winnipeg for a conditional sixth-round pick.

Stafford has 9 goals in 40 games with the Jets this season.

The 31-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Although the Boston Celtics never stopped being interesting, they’re officially on the verge of juggernaut status once again. And they don’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.

This is a big deal when you consider where the Celtics were just a few years ago, having traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry ahead of the 2013-14 season, beginning what everyone thought was an extensive rebuild that would take years to complete.

So much for that. Continue reading Boston Celtics Are Emerging As Title Challengers »
