Bobby Carpenter may not have quite lived up to the potential that landed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1981, but he did put together a serviceable 21-year career that included four seasons with the Boston Bruins.
He also raised his daughter, Alex Carpenter, to be one heck of a hockey player, herself.

Did Alexandre Burrows bite Patrice Bergeron during Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final? The referees then said no, but the Bruins — and the team’s fans — knew better.
So when the B’s and Canucks took the ice for Game 2, after Boston suffered a last-second defeat to Vancouver in the opening game, it quickly became clear that these two teams did not like each other. That...
The Bruins had already survived one Game 7 against the Canadiens in the first round of the 2011 playoffs. So as the B’s prepared for a second winner-take-all game, this time against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals, fans should have been prepared to strap in for another roller-coaster ride.
If only it was that easy.
The game between the Bruins and Lightning...
It’s probably not the best time to talk about the NHL and money, but ignoring Forbes’ latest report won’t lift the lockout.
