About Scott Mclaughlin

Scott McLaughlin interned at WEEI.com in 2011, and two years later they realized they missed him and hired him full-time. Scott spent those two years wandering from rink to rink while writing for Inside Hockey and College Hockey News. His work has also appeared on NESN.com and FOXSports.com and in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and Christian Science Monitor. Scott graduated from Boston University and sometimes stares longingly at his old dorm from the WEEI offices.

No one has ever questioned Jim Madigan's love of Northeastern University and its hockey program.

In case you haven't heard, the Beanpot has become pretty predictable. It's been 23 years since someone other than Boston College or Boston University won it.

The concerns over Tuukka Rask earlier this season were, for the most part, overblown. Yes, he was playing poorly.

For the most part, Peter Chiarelli was a pretty good general manager.
Scott McLaughlin

Peter Chiarelli made two solid trades Monday.

A lot of things that have happened with the Bruins this year would have been hard to predict before the season.
Scott McLaughlin
10/29/2014 - 11:18pm
Tuukka Rask has been bad this season. It's OK to acknowledge that.
Scott McLaughlin
09/08/2014 - 9:57pm
It might be tempting to think some good came from all of Monday's ugliness.

For those who have been following their growth, it's been evident for a while that hockey's advanced stats are here to stay. They've provided us with a new way to watch and analyze the game. They've quantified ideas that previously couldn't be quantified. And they've proven to be a better predictor of future success than anything else that's available.

Jack Eichel is trying not to think about it too much.
Scott McLaughlin
05/15/2014 - 7:18pm
There are lots of rivalries in sports, but how many of them actually involve real hatred? No, not hatred between the fanbases. Not fans of one team hating the other team's star player. But players hating each other, criticizing each other, mocking each other, really trying to get under each other's skin.

If you've been following the Bruins this postseason, you're probably aware that their top line has struggled to score goals.
Scott McLaughlin
04/05/2014 - 5:19pm
It’s already being called his best game as a Bruin, and rightly so. Playing on the top line in place of a banged-up Jarome Iginla, Loui Eriksson registered a career-high four assists and a game-high seven shots on goal (which is also a season high for him) in the Bruins’ 5-2 win over the Flyers Saturday afternoon.
Scott McLaughlin

Zdeno Chara turned 37 on Tuesday, and he’s still one of the best defensemen in the NHL. Considering how long he’s been one of the best, it’s kind of amazing that he’s only won one Norris Trophy (in 2009).
Scott McLaughlin
03/09/2014 - 9:40pm
So, the Bruins didn’t get a sure-fire top-four defenseman at the trade deadline. We all know they could’ve used one. But did they need one? Is their top four a weakness?
Scott McLaughlin
03/02/2014 - 11:09pm
If you’re a Bruins fan, you’ve heard the debate a hundred times since Dennis Seidenberg went down with a torn ACL and MCL on Dec. 27. Should the Bruins pony up to acquire a top-four defenseman before the trade deadline? Can they win the Stanley Cup if they don’t?
Scott McLaughlin
02/22/2014 - 3:43pm
Let’s not sugarcoat this. Missing the podium is a major disappointment for the United States men’s hockey team.
Scott McLaughlin
02/09/2014 - 2:08pm
The men's Olympic hockey tournament gets started on Wednesday, with Team USA opening group play on Thursday at 7:30 a.m. ET against Zdeno Chara and Slovakia. The Americans will then face host Russia on Saturday morning before closing out group play against Slovenia on Sunday.
