About Joe Haggerty
Joe Haggerty has covered the Boston Bruins and the NHL for the Woburn Daily Times Chronicle over the last six seasons and does actually remember the last time the Black and Gold were favored in a playoff series. Haggerty grew up in a hockey family, but the closest he came to playing ice hockey was enrolling in an ice skating class. Haggs is old enough to remember when TV guys like Mike Milbury, Rick Middleton and Andy Brickley skated for the B’s, but still young enough to think that Milan Lucic could be the next Big Hockey Thing in Boston.

NEW YORK – Sometimes the best lessons are also the ones learned hardest, with pain and disappointment as the merciless tour guides.

NEW YORK – The similarities are almost too eerie to comprehend. Picture two different seasons in recent Red Sox history that feature some fairly different personnel, but also appear to be traveling on parallel paths.

Aaron Ward was very rarely at a loss for words during his two-plus years with the Boston Bruins, but the verbose blueliner had the sound of someone who had just felt the rug being pulled out from under him on Friday afternoon.

Brad Penny was remarkably consistent while putting together a solid half season body of work in Boston prior to the All-Star break, and headed into Saturday’s start with a stretch of six straight outings during which he’d allowed three runs or less.

Does a hockey team have a fatal flaw if its front office brain trust refuses to acknowledge it? Amid an economy that’s dropping faster than Wily E. Coyote over a desert cliff, that seems to be the question of summer for a Bruins team poised to sweep through a critical period of free agency and roster-building.
