The Florida Panthers avoided a deep hole by winning a game without Sam Bennett, and now the Boston Bruins will have to do at least that much without Brad Marchand. That’s the task tonight when the teams meet at 6:30 pm ET for Game 4 at TD Garden. A loss and the Panthers go home dormie, as in par the fifth hole, sign the scorecard, get ready for the Rangers. What gets said below will get salty, but it’s not borne of outrage, only reality based on five-plus decades experience. First let’s address the series. The Atlantic Division-winning Panthers were rusty for Game 1 against a Boston Bruins tea ..read more

The less-is-more Boston Bruins have something to say, and coach Jim Montgomery said it late last night after his team had vanquished the Toronto Maple Leafs. “Number one: Block out the noise.” The noise said the Bruins are chokers. The noise said the Bruins were about to become the only major professional sports franchise ever to blow a 3-1 series lead in consecutive years. The noise said that Don Sweeney is a regular-season general manager and that Montgomery is a regular-season coach who fixes things that aren’t broken. The noise said the Bruins have no powerplay and it will cancel their cha ..read more

Former Boston Bruins captain and longtime center Patrice Bergeron was the Game 7 Banner captain before the Bruins hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden on Saturday night. It was only fitting that the man who led the miraculous Game 7 comeback against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 of the first round in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs got the nod. Ironically, just like in that 2013 series against the Maple Leafs, the Bruins blew a 3-1 series lead in this current series. So, clearly, the Bruins were hoping that their former captain, who scored a last-minute goal in 2013 and then the overt ..read more

If the Boston Bruins want to win Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs and avoid becoming the first pro sports team to blow a 3-1 series lead two straight seasons, then they will need to will their way to the net. In the famous words of Public Enemy and Anthrax: “Turn it up! Bring the noise!” The Boston Bruins have hardly brought a peep to start the last two games, getting out-shot 11-2 in the first period of their 2-1 Game 5 loss and then 12-2 in the opening frame of Game 6, another 2-1 defeat. The inability of the Bruins to get pucks on net or down low to create havoc in front of former Bos ..read more
