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.

There were certainly things to point toward when looking for reasons behind a stunning Game 7 overtime loss for the Bruins Thursday night against Carolina.

This is the place where heroes are forged and reputations are built to mythic heights or dropped straight into the puck dumpster. It’s the place where grown men crumble into blubbering, tear-filled fools and sheer pressure can turn the stomach of even the staunchest, fire-bellied competitor.

RALEIGH, N.C. – All season long the Bruins have touted their depth and balanced scoring as one of the clear strengths of their hockey team.

Milan Lucic might have provided the turning point in the Bruins-Carolina playoff series with 5:45 to go in the first period of Sunday night’s Game 5.

RALEIGH -- It appears the Bruins now have a series on their hands. The Big Bad -- and brought to their knees -- B’s will have to put together quite the pull-out-the-stops effort in Friday night’s Game 4 to reverse the changing momentum in this series.

Just about everything has gone right for 41-year-old Mark Recchi since he was whisked away from hockey purgatory in Tampa Bay and traded to the Cup-hungry Bruins on March 4.

There was some sentiment before the series started by many donning the oh-so-chic Black and Gold-colored glasses that the masked man for the Carolina Hurricanes wasn’t in the same class of goaltender as two-time All-Star Tim Thomas

It’s easy sometimes get so caught up in Zdeno Chara’s considerable shutdown defensive abilities that a talented group of B’s two-way forwards don’t get the proper “rink cred” they deserve for their own elite level of defensive prowess.

Let’s start off with this. The Bruins should win this playoff series.

With a series of Game 7’s on tap for Tuesday night hot on the heels of a great Ducks/Sharks elimination game last night – whoever thought we’d see Jumbo Joe Thornton drop the gloves right off the hop in the opening faceoff with Anaheim big guy Ryan Getzlaf?

MONTREAL – Amidst an extraordinary hockey season, the sources of discontent for chronic Bruins complainers continue to disappear. One more axe came to a definitive demise in Wednesday night’s Game 4 when the Black and Gold enjoyed a sight they haven’t witnessed much in their 85-year history.
Joe Haggerty

MONTREAL -- One of the biggest clichés in professional sports is the notion of the “elimination game.” It’s the last breath of life for any pro sports team, and it’s something undeniably steeped in reality.

MONTREAL –- Byron Bitz should have been a jangled bundle of nerves as he took the ice for his first NHL playoff game at the raucous Bell Centre Monday night — and truth be told, he was a little on edge after skating out for the National Anthems

The Bruins don’t have to look too deeply in the past to remember what happened the last time they had a player suspended during a playoff series.

The Canadiens finally got what they wanted.

The Bruins are saying and doing all the right things. They were a “one game at a time” quote machine heading into a highly-anticipated playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens that got underway Thursday night.

The Bruins have garnered the top spot in the Eastern Conference for the first time in five years, and won back many of the wayward fans that deserted the Spoked B hockey club when the Harry Sinden and Mike O’Connell-led ship splintered into the rocks following the NHL lockout.
Joe Haggerty

It seemed like yesterday that the Bruins’ season was just shooting out of the starting gate, and Boston was still ignoring the Black and Gold — despite the excitement stirred up by last season’s seven-game playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens.

It’s no shrouded mystery that David Krejci has emerged as a point-producing puck artist in his first full season with the Bruins.

Mark Recchi has watched hundreds of great hockey players during his 24 seasons playing junior hockey, riding minor league  buses and largely enjoying the good life of the NHL.  
Joe Haggerty
03/23/2009 - 11:33pm
So much talk the last few weeks about a potential first-round playoff collapse by the Black and Gold, and whether the Bruins are actually as good as they appeared during the first half of the year. The quick-and-dirty answers to each of the question is no.
Joe Haggerty
03/18/2009 - 8:31pm
It might be hockey heresy to say, but the sizzling surge of the New Jersey Devils might be the best thing that’s happened to the Bruins. Let’s face it.
