Strap on your skates and grab your stick: Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe is here, as he is every Wednesday, to talk hockey. We recapped Monday’s Beanpot and talked about a surging Boston Bruins team that might consider a reunion of sorts in the coming weeks. More
Three guesses as to how the Northeastern-Boston University game ended last night. More
It was back-to-back nights on Garden ice with the 63rd Beanpot Tournament on Monday night and a tough Bruins loss to the Canucks last night. Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe joined me to discuss both, with emphasis on the Bruins’ trade deadline options. More
