When the Bruins were facing the prospect of watching the Vancouver Canucks celebrate a Stanley Cup championship on TD Garden ice in Game 6 of 2011, who got them off and running offensively? Brad Marchand scored the first of Boston’s four goals in the first 9:45 of that game that sent the series...

“We've changed lines all year to try to get guys going. The problem with that this time of year is you're so far down the line, the other lines have their chemistry, especially our bottom two lines. We used to pull guys, throw them a little carrot, some extra minutes, some extra responsibility...

The officials’ refusal to whistle the Blues for head hunting in Game 5 sends another message besides exposing NHL referees as susceptible to hypnosis from Craig Berube. It shows the league is indifferent to player safety, and frankly, isn’t even pretending otherwise. That was evident early in the...

Depending on what happens over the next two games of Stanley Cup Final action, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy might just need to reach out to New Orleans Saints sideline boss Sean Payton to get some advice on dealing with an historically piss-poor non-call that derails a potential title run. It’s...

Bobby Orr and Derek Sanderson, the connection that created “The Goal” in 1970, were the Bruins’ banner captains Thursday before Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden. The two Bruins legends probably stuck around to watch the Bruins lose 2-1 to the St. Louis Blues and fall behind in the...

It would be incorrect to uniformly declare we are sick and tired of winning. On a local level, our sports teams’ annual championship chases still draw very high ratings, with the Patriots’ numbers even surpassing what they were at the start of the new millennium. But that is the exception, and not...

FOXBORO — The media has attended three Patriots on-field activities so far this spring, and second-year running back Sony Michel has been on the field for none of them. While Michel missed all of the preseason last year along with Weeks 1, 7 and 8 with knee injuries, the Georgia product was...

The Bruins are probably going to be shorthanded on defense when they take the ice for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Thursday. Matt Grzelcyk might be cleared from the concussion protocol but he might not. Zdeno Chara could shock the world and play a Final game with his mouth sewn shut, but it’s...

Tom Brady is the GOAT. As such, he’s earned the right to skip “voluntary” OTA workouts as he approaches his 42nd birthday, even under the “No Days Off” mantra of Bill Belichick in New England. So it’s certainly no surprise that for the second straight spring Brady decided to forgo the NFL...
