Carolina Hurricanes

The Boston Bruins have accumulated five straight postseason wins, a streak that includes the first two games of their playoff series against the Carolina Hurricanes. Dating back to Game 4 of their second-round series versus the Columbus Blue Jackets, they have outscored opponents 22-8. After taking the first two games of the Eastern Conference Final, Boston can't sit back. Entering Game 3, the Hurricanes will be face-to-face with what is virtually a must-win game. While it's been done before (as the Bruins know far too well), digging yourself out of a 3-0 hole is a daunting task. It's a fate Carolina will attempt to evade at all costs. Despite two big wins, the Boston Bruins must expect the Carolina Hurricanes to bring their A-game in Game 3. (Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports) The Bruins must be ready for the Hurricanes to come out with a fire in their bellies. In survival mode and with the home crowd behind them, Carolina will be coming at the Bruins with everything they've...

When the NHL Trade Deadline rolls around each year, the same questions consistently float around. Which teams are buyers? Who are the sellers? Which teams are in the hunt and will have to decide on their own internal rental options? The biggest question, though, comes down to whether or not a trade will actually turn a team from a competitor into a legitimate contender. This is a fair question as time and time again, teams have mortgaged their future for an addition with no guarantee they'll even provide an impact. In fact, more often than not, the biggest deadline additions don't tend to lead to success. The Columbus Blue Jackets, who emptied the well to acquire Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel from the Ottawa Seantors, along with others at the trade deadline, are left with very little to show for it now that all is said and done. It's led to some hesitance for certain general managers who have been snake-bitten in the past, but it hasn't stopped the trend of rentals...

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.

The Evolution of Brad Marchand

Boston Bruins left-winger Brad Marchand has developed himself from a fourth-line pest into one of the NHL's premier scorers. His path to joining the NHL elite was atypical, however. According to Hockey-Graphs, most players plateau in Wins Above Replacement (WAR) from age 22 to 25 and endure a slow... November 8th, 2017
