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.”

    As long as David Pastrnak doesn’t go out to celebrate his four-goal game with teammates and then have a wrestling match with a sidewalk, the Bruins forward should be well on his way to a 40- or 50-goal season before making a bigger splash than ever in the 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs. Pastrnak is on...
