The only thing that can stop the Bruins now is overconfidence. They haven’t just beaten the Penguins in two games in Pittsburgh. They have dismantled their manhood for everyone in the hockey world to see.
Mike Petraglia

WILMINGTON -- I can’t wait for this series to begin. I can’t wait to see how the Bruins have handled their week of rest and preparation.
Mike Petraglia
05/29/2013 - 9:01pm
The Bruins have the right goalie for the biggest challenge they’ve faced since the 2011 Stanley Cup finals.
Mike Petraglia
05/25/2013 - 9:54pm
Thank goodness for Torey Krug. That’s what every Bruins fan is thinking and saying right now after the Bruins took care of business and eliminated the Rangers with a 3-1 win in Game 5 Saturday evening at TD Garden.
Mike Petraglia

NEW YORK -- The joke is on the Bruins, at least for one night.
Mike Petraglia
05/21/2013 - 10:18pm
The Bruins will end this series on Thursday night. There will be no dramatic comeback by the Rangers. There will be no repeat of 2010 against the Flyers. There will be no repeat of Toronto from the last round.
Mike Petraglia
05/19/2013 - 7:05pm
This is how good the Bruins can be. After completely dominating the Rangers and undressing King Henrik five times, the Bruins walked out of TD Garden with a 5-2 win Sunday and a 2-0 series lead. They were the better team in every aspect.
Mike Petraglia
05/17/2013 - 8:13am
We’ve been down this road so many times in the last 14 years, it almost seems passé. Boston-New York.
Mike Petraglia
05/13/2013 - 11:39pm
Just like his team, Claude Julien has a new lease on life. It took the most miraculous comeback in Game 7 Stanley Cup playoff history, but Julien lives to coach another playoff series with the Bruins.
Mike Petraglia
05/12/2013 - 10:32pm
If Game 7 is the best thing in sports, Game 6 is Boston’s worst nightmare.
Mike Petraglia
05/10/2013 - 12:41pm
Funny how perception can change come playoff time with the Bruins. Two weeks before the playoffs, the perception was that Boston was limping toward the finish line. The perception was that the Bruins had no identity and their top two wingers on their top line weren’t producing. Their top-line center was underperforming.
Mike Petraglia
05/08/2013 - 11:09pm
Now we can really say the playoffs have begun for the Boston Bruins. And David Krejci made sure it got off on the right foot.
Mike Petraglia
05/06/2013 - 11:18pm
Championship teams are defined by how they handle adversity. In their Stanley Cup title run two years ago, the Bruins were down 0-2 in the first and last series they played but still managed to win each in seven heart-stopping games. They had to win three Game 7s, including the Cup-clincher in Vancouver.
Mike Petraglia

Is this really how it ends for Paul Pierce in a Celtics uniform?
Mike Petraglia
05/02/2013 - 2:52am
NEW YORK -- It’s the question everyone in New York was asking after Game 5 at Madison Square Garden. Are the Knicks scared? It’s a very fair question to ask. Are the Knicks worried about joining their baseball brethren in the Bronx from 2004?
Mike Petraglia
04/30/2013 - 7:01pm
Talk about whistling by a graveyard.
Mike Petraglia
04/27/2013 - 8:53am
It's always hard to watch a champ grow old. It's even harder when that champ knows its beaten and its spirit is broken. That's exactly what's happened to these short-handed Celtics.
Mike Petraglia
04/26/2013 - 9:46am
After watching the worst two playoff halves of offensive basketball in the long, illustrious history of the NBA’s proudest franchise, what else is there left for Doc Rivers to do?
Mike Petraglia
04/21/2013 - 8:36am
NEW YORK -- Now we know why Rajon Rondo is so important to the Celtics.
Mike Petraglia
04/18/2013 - 10:17pm
The Knicks are hotter. The Knicks are deeper. The Knicks are playing their best basketball at the right time, winning 13 in a row at one point in late March and early April. The Knicks won the Atlantic Division for the first time in 19 years with a 54-28 record.
Mike Petraglia

What now? Like millions of others, I watched in horror as the images of Monday afternoon were broadcast on television across the country and the world. Unlike many, I had a seat close to the epicenter of the Boston Marathon bombings, inside the press box at Fenway Park.
Mike Petraglia
04/11/2013 - 12:11pm
I want to believe this Celtics team has one last run in it. I want to believe that -- in spite of injuries and ugly, ugly losses to the likes of Minnesota, Cleveland and Charlotte in the last two weeks -- the C's can make things interesting for their fans. 
Mike Petraglia
04/05/2013 - 12:52am
Funny what a difference a trade deadline can make.
Mike Petraglia
03/28/2013 - 11:49am
Claude Julien chuckled at the question. Will he be happy when the Jarome Iginla trade watch is over? “If it works out,” the Bruins coach answered with a nervous twinge in his smile. Maybe the coach knew something.
