Based on the Bruins’ lines at Tuesday’s practice, it doesn’t look like Ryan Donato will be in the lineup for Wednesday’s Game 7 at TD Garden. It appears the only change will be Danton Heinen going in and Tommy Wingels taking a seat. Here’s hoping Bruce Cassidy reconsiders. Rolling with the forwards...

The concept of peaking early shouldn’t even exist. It’s just absurd to put a cap on a number of wins, and the idea that a team is due for a loss based on the fact that it has won X amount of times is a straight up fallacy. Still, the Bruins’ start to this series was almost suspiciously strong...

Rob Gronkowski’s actions this offseason have been very un-Patriot like. It began with the tight end saying he needed to think about his future and wouldn’t commit to 2018 immediately following the Super Bowl LII loss to the Eagles. Then came his social media posts that went against Bill Belichick...

The Stanley Cup playoffs are in full swing, and with that comes the return of cryptic press conferences. When Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy announced he “may tinker with the lineup tonight” before Game 6 in Toronto, most signs pointed to removing Danton Heinen from the lineup. As strong a debut...

For somebody who appears to loathe the media, Bill Belichick is awfully good to us. And this week, which looks like it will end with the Patriots selecting a quarterback early in the NFL Draft, promises to be the most wild time of an already incredible offseason that’s been littered with palace...

Rob Gronkowski likes to joke around and have fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, athletes with personality who show it on camera at their press conferences are a breath of fresh air in today’s media landscape. But, Saturday at Gillette Stadium when Gronkowski held a press...

"He handed us fiction after fiction and we printed them all as fact. Just because ... we found him entertaining." - Shattered Glass I’ve always had my doubts about the work of Kevin Cullen. Not that I read him a lot in the Boston Globe. His stuff was never anything approaching must-read status. But...

As a general rule, when a defenseman does his job it flies under the radar. That's just how it goes when you’re in the business of mistake prevention. Unless, of course, you’re Charlie McAvoy. The immediate impact McAvoy made when the Bruins tossed him into the ring in the 2017 playoffs has held up...

The Maple Leafs -- clinging on for dear life in the final 25 minutes of a 4-3 Game 5 final at TD Garden, and on the back of a series-best 42-save night from Frederik Andersen -- were just inches away from becoming truly haunted by the ghosts of their past. The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man? Vigo the...

It is widely assumed that Tom Brady has a tangible end game for making the Patriots wait on his official status for the upcoming season. Maybe Brady wants to strong-arm Bill Belichick into reinstating Alex Guerrero’s access to the team, once again permitting the quarterback’s guru to perform deep...
