True freshman Jeremy Swayman stepped onto the University of Maine's campus, seized the starting goaltender role, and led the team to its first winning season since 2013-14. The 2017 fourth-round pick of the Bruins caught the attention of scouts while playing for the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL...

As expected as Riley Nash’s departure was, it still stung. He signed a three-year, $8.25 million contract with the Blue Jackets during free agency, leaving the Bruins with a very specific role to replace. Nash had a career 15-26--41 season in 76 games. Cool. Replacing him is more about the time he...

John Tavares didn’t have to make a case for himself. He’s scored the fifth-most regular season goals in the league since his 2009-10 debut, he’s coming off a top-three career season, and you just know the 27-year-old center has so much more to offer an even somewhat functional team. No doubt, it...

Kirk Minihane has an unwavering belief that sports talk radio should include less sports talk. To the surprise of nobody, I agree with his assessment. But that doesn’t mean my WEEI utopia would consist of Lou Merloni debating Brett Kavanaugh’s conservative credentials or Rich Keefe ripping...

The Bruins were one point from being the best team in the conference. They now look like the clear cut third-best team in their division. This offseason, the Lightning and Maple Leafs look vastly superior to the black and gold. If Tampa Bay adds former Norris trophy winner Erik Karlsson, the Bruins...

Anton Khudobin had about as quality a season as $1.2 million dollars could get the Bruins in 2017-18. Tuukka Rask’s 32-year-old backup went 16-6-7 with a 2.56 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. More than that, he pushed Rask to perform better through particular stretches at the...

At some point last season, the Bruins became self aware. None of us know exactly when that happened -- maybe they don’t even know when exactly it clicked -- but the awareness culminated in general manager Don Sweeney trading for Rick Nash at the deadline. The phrase “going all in” was tossed around...

While the Bruins' two toughest rivals in the division have made big moves like signing John Tavares and locking up Ryan McDonagh , the B's have so far had to settle for adding depth. After reportedly signing backup goalie Jaroslav Halak and fourth-line forwards Joakim Nordstrom and Chris Wagner,...
