Matt Kalman

Matt Kalman fell into covering the Bruins and the NHL by accident but is now well into his second decade on the beat. After creating the Bruins beat reporter position for the New England Hockey Journal, Matt went on to found TheBruinsBlog.net, the first credentialed blog devoted solely to the Bruins. Matt’s hockey coverage has also appeared on NHL.com, Forbes.com, ESPNBoston.com and in the Boston Herald, among several other publications. He is the author of “100 Things Bruins Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die” and the co-author with Dale Arnold of “If These Walls Could Talk: Boston Bruins.”

    Brad Marchand doesn’t seem like the type of guy who will panic, even in a week when he’s made two major gaffes that will be fixtures on those “Weird NHL” videos the league posts on YouTube.

    The Bruins made a half-hearted attempt to get revenge on Columbus Blue Jackets forward Emil Bemstrom on Tuesday after the rookie nailed goalie Tuukka Rask in the head. Rask was placed on injured reserve Thursday because of a concussion. Although a lot of focus has been on the Bruins’ non-action...
