Flyers Rally Past Bruins – Couturier Nets Hat Trick

PHILADELPHIA — Sean Couturier had a hat trick, Carter Hart stopped 39 shots and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Wednesday night. Couturier scored twice within 90 seconds in the second period and sealed the win with his 19th goal late in the third for his first career regular-season hat trick (two in the playoffs).

Bruins’ Trade Deadline Targets

It is hard to believe that trading season is here once again, but as the NHL’s annual All-Star Game creeps a little bit closer that means the deadline is right around the corner. This season there appears to be more of a buyer’s market than anything, which greatly benefits a team like the Boston Bruins. As the Bruins get healthier and the wins continue to pile up, it only strength?ens the team’s case to buy at this deadline. With a number of young players on ‘value deals,’ there might not ...

Top 10 Contracts in the NHL

With more than half of all National Hockey League clubs within $4 million of the current $79.5 million salary cap, it’s safe to say many were relieved when it was widely reported that next season’s ceiling will increase to $83 million. That $3.5 million increase may be enough to give contending teams the room they need to piece things together. What’s even more helpful, however, is when some of your best players are already signed to team-friendly, long-term deals. Young stars signed to long-ter...

Maple Leafs Want Redemption When Bruins Visit

TORONTO — It didn’t take long for John Tavares to get a feel for the Toronto Maple Leafs’ simmering rivalry with the Boston Bruins. No stranger to heated games between New York teams during his nine seasons with the Islanders, he was left fuming after the Leafs got thumped 6-3 in Boston last month. “It’s got to piss you off,” Tavares said after the penalty-filled loss at TD Garden on Dec. 8. “Definitely not a fun one.” The veteran centre and his teammates will get a chance at redemption — and to...

Bruins Beat Coyotes – Marchand Tallies 2 Goals

BOSTON — Brad Marchand scored two goals and assisted on another during a four-goal, second-period flurry to lead the Boston Bruins over the Arizona Coyotes 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Lessons From the Bruins’ Win Over the Maple Leafs?

The Toronto Maple Leafs entered this game with two questions. Question 1: How would William Nylander do in game two of his after-signing comeback? Question 2: Could they ramp up their energy against the Boston Bruins in ways they failed to do in their overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings? Their 6-3 loss to the Bruins answered both questions: Nylander did OK, and the Maple Leafs did not match the Bruins’ energy. Coming Into This Game Even after losing to the Red Wings, the Maple Leafs e...

Nylander Contract Dispute Nearing the End

We were all worried about how this contract negotiation would go, but were reassured by Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas: “We can and we will”. At the time it was a great quote from Dubas’ interview on Sportsnet’s 31 Thoughts: The Podcast. It calmed anxious fans and gave everyone confidence that the Maple Leafs would sign all of Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander. When the season started it seemed almost expected that Nylander would miss some games. It would be...

Why is the Nylander Situation so Complicated?

It’s almost mid-November and if William Nylander isn’t signed by December 1, he will sit out the entire 2018-19 season. Nylander’s camp is reportedly still asking for a long-term contract with an annual average value (AAV) of $8 million, while the Toronto Maple Leafs seem to be offering something in the $6 million range. Why are the two sides so far off? It’s mainly due to the different ways you can slice the data when looking at his comparables, differing viewpoints on whether or not he s...

Maple Leafs: What’s Nylander Actually Worth?

The first month of the NHL season has come and gone. The clocks fell back an hour, and we’re nearly a week into November and, still, William Nylander’s blue and white Toronto Maple Leafs jersey sits untarnished somewhere in the depths of Scotiabank Arena. Now, with the Dec. 1 deadline looming less than a month away, the 22-year-old remains without a contract and is in jeopardy of losing the entire 2018-19 season. While numbers are still the question mark in these negotiations, at one point in Se...

Bruins Need to Break up Top Line

It’s been said time and time again: Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak make up the best line in hockey. There’s been debate about the topic, naturally so given the amount of talent in the NHL. No matter which line is brought up as the potential “best line in hockey” though, the Bruins’ top trio is always brought up in comparison. It’s a testament to how good the three players perform not only as individuals but as a unit as well. Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergero...

Big Bruins Milestones Coming Soon

With their victory against the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday, the Boston Bruins have battled their way to a 3-1-0 victory. They have outscored opponents 14-4 in their last three games. It is a sizeable feat for a team who lost their opening-night matchup against the Washington Capitals by a score of 7-0. As the Bruins look to gain more victories as a unit, they also have ones to look forward to at the individual level. A number of players on Boston’s squad are within shouting distance of career mi...

Bruins Mishandling Third Line Center Role

Sean Kuraly, Noel Acciari and David Backes. All three players are or have been capable of playing center in their career and have been reliable in the spot when called upon. Despite this, there’s a clear distinction between a player who can play center and a player who can play center in a top-nine role. That’s unfortunate for the Bruins given the fact that, after Monday’s matinee contest against the Ottawa Senators, the Bruins will have experimented with all three players in that role in their ...

Does Signing William Nylander Long-Term Hold Value?

The Toronto Maple Leafs are trending towards becoming an annual contender for the Stanley Cup. However, a successful team has talented players and, for the Maple Leafs, their core talent is a trio of young players who are on the last legs of their ELC. We all expect Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner to get paid but the big question mark surrounds the third member of that trio, William Nylander.

Widely considered one of the best lines in hockey last season, the Boston Bruins’ leading offensive unit had eyes on them throughout the 2017-18 campaign. Consisting of Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak on Patrice Bergeron’s flanks, the three players tallied a combined total of 228 points. The line was a huge reason why Boston found themselves in a duel with the Tampa Bay Lightning for the top seed in the Eastern Conference heading into the playoffs. They are a line no Bruins fan would like to se...
