November 18th, 2019 The Boston Bruins are one of the most dominant hockey teams in the NHL -during regulation. All twelve of their wins this season have come in regulation. That gives the Bruins two more 60-minute wins than the next two teams, the Edmonton Oilers and New York Islanders, who each have ten regulation...

Throughout the early portion of Charlie McAvoy's career, veteran captain Zdeno Chara has been the consistent defensive partner lining up alongside him. Over the past three seasons, no Boston Bruins defensive pairing has logged more minutes. And for a while, it made sense. With McAvoy labeled as the crown jewel of the Bruins' defensive future upon breaking into the league, it made sense to stick him on a pairing with one of the most respected veteran defensemen in the NHL. A great student requires a great teacher, you know? And while their playing styles don't exactly complement each other, the two have generally worked pretty well together in the past, so, why not? Charlie McAvoy has spent most of his NHL time with Zdeno Chara as his defensive partner. Could a change be coming? (THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP/Michael Dwyer, File) However, if the early portion of the season is any indication, the days of the McAvoy-Chara pairing may be better off left behind. Head coach Bruce...

Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's NHL rumors, there is an update on the severity of Mitch Marner's injury, the Buffalo Sabres may be forced to make a trade earlier than they might have liked and defensemen Torey Krug went down with a mysterious injury on Sunday; how long will he be out? Marner to Miss a Month The Toronto Maple Leafs announced via Twitter that Mitch Marner will miss a minimum of one month due to the ankle injury he suffered earlier this week.  He will be re-evaluated by the team in a month's time and likely placed on LTIR until then. Toronto Maple Leafs Mitchell Marner (THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Derik Hamilton) This is not good news for the Maple Leafs who were hoping to see what a fully-healthy lineup would look like when Zach Hyman was placed back into the mix. For now, it does mean the Maple Leafs won't need to make a quick roster move to open up space. Related: Worst Toronto Maple Leafs Trades Sabres May Not Be Able to Wait There have been rumors...

Montreal Canadiens

There is no doubt that the Boston Bruins have been rolling this year. Heading into their game with the Pittsburgh Penguins last Monday, the Bruins sat at 10-1-2, leading the Atlantic Division. Their first line has been producing points in just about every game and their goaltenders have played at an extremely high level. Boston Bruins' David Pastrnak celebrates with teammates Torey Krug, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Fred Thornhill) Even with this great success, the Bruins reached a rough patch. A tough back-to-back stretch starting with the Penguins and followed by a matchup with the Montreal Canadiens the next day led the Bruins to struggle in multiple areas. However, despite losing their second game to the Canadiens, the Bruins showed their resilience and fight in combatting the struggles of their goaltenders and the clear fatigue they faced. The team competed in both games, beating the Penguins and losing by just one goal to the Canadiens....

Philadelphia Flyers

BOSTON — Joel Farabee scored in the shootout to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Sunday night. Travis Konecny had a goal and an assist, and Phillipe Myers also scored in regulation for the Flyers. Carter Hart finished with 26 saves to help Philadelphia win its season-high fourth straight while going beyond regulation for the fifth time in six games. Danton Heinen and Brad Marchand each had a goal and Jaroslav Halak stopped 27 shots for the Bruins, who lost their season-high third straight (0-2-1) after six-game win streak. Farabee, who played at nearby Boston University, beat Halak high glove-side on the Flyers' first shootout attempt. Hart stopped all three tries by the Bruins, poke-checking away David Pastrnak's attempt to seal Philadelphia's win.

Esposito: The Trade That Shaped the Boston Bruins

In today's look at important off-season trades over the years, we set our sights back to 1967.  While this particular deal did not take place at the NHL Annual Meetings held in the first week in June, it is inextricably linked to the events that were scheduled for that gathering.
