John Tortorella may be coming back to Boston, but it’ll be to visit some cousins or whatever family he has left here. It won’t be for a Game 7, which he guaranteed Saturday . It’s become obvious that the Bruins have figured out the Blue Jackets. Considering the only reason Game 5 of the Eastern...

The greatest ever was in the building. He was hanging out a few strides from the elevators in the bowels of TD Garden a few hours before game time. Everyone wanted to catch a glance of him, and when Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy arrived for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference second round, Bobby...

By the time the Bruins reached the third period of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference second round protecting a 2-1 lead, it seemed like their best strategy, if they drew a penalty from Columbus, would be to decline the power play. As it turned out, they extended the lead to 3-1 on an even-strength...

“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” -- Deepak Chopra Chaos reigned supreme in the first period of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference second round between the Bruins and Columbus on Thursday.

Red Sox Hall of Fame broadcaster Joe Castiglione has been on the call for 36 years. But that doesn’t mean he’s a dinosaur who’s content with seeing baseball further devolve into a plodding game full of strikeouts, home runs and pitching changes.

It’s spring and our two winter sports teams are locked into tight and competitive second-round playoff battles. The NFL Draft just passed and the Patriots scored well and the Red Sox are showing signs of coming off life support. With all that and the start of Tee-ball for my kiddos, there’s simply...

A few days ago I made the suggestion that if Brad Marchand played for a Canadian-based NHL team, he could run for prime minister and win. I neglected to realize that Marchand already owns his native country. In an amazing turn of events, cooler heads prevailed at the NHL Department of Player Safety...

It wasn’t just Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and the Blue Jackets’ penalty kill that had it in for the Bruins in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference second round Tuesday. Commercials weren’t their friend either. The Bruins were down 2-1 – the scored they’d eventually lose by – early in the...

Two days following the NFL draft, the current Patriots tight end depth chart is pretty scary. It has Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Stephen Anderson, Matt LaCosse, Ryan Izzo and Andrew Beck following Jacob Hollister being traded to the Seahawks on Monday and the team not drafting one over the weekend...
