The All-St. Louis Hockey Team

Though it is not known as a hockey hot bed, the city of St. Louis has produced a number of terrific NHL talents over the years. Never was this more apparent than when five prospects from the city were drafted in the first round of the 2016 NHL Draft. Now that those players have arrived in the big league, it’s a good time to consider who might make the All-St. Louis hockey team. It’s almost a complete group of active players with a few creative additions. Let’s take a look at the squad. Forward...

Bruins’ Marchand Thriving Without Gimmicks

Whether you love him or hate him, everybody has something to say about Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand. While some of his on-ice antics may give a bad impression, his play is making it more difficult to deny that the 30-year-old forward is among the NHL’s most elite players. His 87 points put him first in scoring on the Bruins and also marks a new career high with 10 games still remaining this season. With significant injuries to both Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak this season, Marchand...

LOS ANGELES — Stefan Flintoft’s family presented him with a book after his final UCLA game. As the punter stood in the parking lot of the Rose Bowl after UCLA’s season-ending game against Stanford, Flintoft looked through pages of newspaper clippings and photos complied by his mother and older sister to commemorate his Bruins career.

The 50 Goal Season

On Mar. 18, 1945, in the final game of the 1944-45 season, Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard of the Montreal Canadiens becomes the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals in one season. In honor of that NHL record-setting accomplishment (one of many for The Rocket) we have pulled this great piece from the THW Archives. Written by former THW contributor Mike Moore and originally published on Jan. 9, 2011.   The Rocket did it first. I don’t believe in astrology, so pardon me when I borrow the expre...

Bruins Round Table: 7th Player Award

Every season, New England Sports Network presents one Boston Bruin with the 7th Player Award an honor given to the player who most exceeded expectations as voted by fans.

Bruins Beat Blue Jackets – Marchand Gets OT Winner

BOSTON — Brad Marchand scored 3:30 into the overtime, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. The win snapped Boston’s three-game losing streak that came after it earned at least a point in 19 straight games. Patrice Bergeron had a power-play goal for the Bruins and set up the game-winner. Bergeron spun around and fed Marchand in the right circle, where Marchand one-timed a shot as he went to one knee for his 15th OT goal, most in team history...

Maple Leafs Learn Valuable Lesson

Trailing 5-2 in the latter stages of the second period to the Philadelphia Flyers, the Toronto Maple Leafs looked destined for a third straight home loss Friday night. Then, something changed. Leafs defenseman Jake Muzzin notched two goals in quick succession, cutting the deficit to 5-4 heading into the intermission. Although neither goal will make the “plays of the week,” they were the turning point of the game. During the second intermission, Muzzin shared some words of wisdom with TSN’s Mark ...

Maple Leafs, Bruins Set on Collision Course

Call it destiny. Or call it a recurring nightmare. Your name for it completely depends on what side of the puck you’re sitting on – the Boston Bruins or the Toronto Maple Leafs. Either way, it looks as though both teams will likely be staring each other down once again when the Stanley Cup playoffs kick off in just over a month. While there’s still time for things to change, it seems fitting that the Bruins and Maple Leafs hold down the second and third spots, respectively, in the Atlantic Divis...

Joshua Kelley passed on NFL, stayed at UCLA to ‘get even better’

LOS ANGELES — Last August, Joshua Kelley was a walk-on who had never appeared in a Division I football game. Four months, 1,243 yards and a record-setting performance against USC later, the jovial running back was weighing a jump to the NFL draft. The rise was humbling, said Kelley, who last season became UCLA’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2015. He appreciated the opportunity to possibly fulfill a childhood dream. But as the redshirt junior considered the decision during the offseason, Kelley ...

League Wide Notes

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, - No decision yet who will be GM of the expansion Seattle franchise. But league-wide rumors have it down to a three-man short list, Mark Hunter, Ron Hextall and Kelly McCrimmon. Hunter, with a sharp eye for draft talent, resigned as assistant GM in Toronto last spring when Kyle Dubas was named GM. Hextall was canned this season as the Flyers GM. McCrimmon, brother of former Bruins defenseman Brad McCrimmon, joined the expansion Vegas franchise a...

Breaking Down the Maple Leafs’ Defensive Woes

About halfway through Friday night’s back-and-forth affair between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers, TSN play-by-play man Gord Miller summed up my thoughts perfectly: “Not sure if it’s a winning recipe in the playoffs, but it’s sure fun to watch.” There were so many goals in the second period (seven, to be exact), that I’m not entirely sure what the exact score was when he said it. 5-2 Flyers, perhaps? Maybe 5-3? Regardless, the Maple Leafs overcame a three-goal deficit to win the...
