Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy didn’t start his fourth line for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final Tuesday the way he usually does in order to set the tone. Instead Cassidy opted for his first line for the opening faceoff. Despite the late start to their evening, Sean Kuraly’s line with Joakim...

The Bruins took a 3-0 series lead with a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes in Raleigh Tuesday night, but it wasn't all good news. Chris Wagner, who scored the Bruins' first goal of the game to give them a 1-0 lead, suffered what appeared to be an arm or wrist injury after blocking a Justin Faulk slapper...

When the Hurricanes couldn't score a single goal after getting 20 shots on net in the first period alone, you just knew the Bruins were going to come out strong in the second period. And that they did, en route to a 2-1 win and a 3-0 series lead. It didn't take long. Just 1:21 into the second,...

Where once we expected the worst, we now must expect the best. It’s a lot easier to lower your expectations and then be pleasantly surprised, in sports as in life. But the Bruins have given us no choice. We must give them the benefit of the doubt as they head to Raleigh for Game 3 and 4 of the...

There appears to be at least one person in the world who’s unaware of all the success Boston sports teams have enjoyed over the last two decades. So maybe there’s an audience for the trite columns about Boston clubs going for the “grand slam of championships” after all. North Carolina journalist...

The Bruins dominated the Hurricanes in Sunday's Game 2, beating them 6-2 in a game that wasn't reflective of the final score to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

After watching Petr Mrazek give up six goals in Sunday’s Game 2, on the heels of giving up four in Game 1, Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said he didn’t pull his goalie because Mrazek didn’t want to come out and that “he has earned that right from me to stay in there.” Maybe so.

Torey Krug’s typically the diminutive defenseman among the Bruins’ blueliner corps that racks up points, and in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday he picked up three assists.

If anything describes the 2019 Bruins it's that they scored six goals Sunday afternoon and only one came from a forward who spent the regular season in the top six. Two goals came from an undersized, third-pairing defenseman, one came from his partner who spent most of the season in Providence,...
