John Tortorella explains his decision to sit Brad Richards

Classic John Tortorella, the guy is a gem. Earlier in the game, Torts was caught on audio cussing out a lines man and dropping the F-bomb. In the course of one night, Torts cussed out the on-ice officials and told the writers to kiss his ass and won a hockey, so he keeps his job for at least another day... It pretty much sounds like he's going to get fired if the Rangers don...

Relax Bruins Nation, the Sky is Not Falling

  Yes, last night was a big let down. Buzzkill. Proverbial kick in the balls. Call it what you like, but I know I’m not alone in that I went into last night’s game 4 at Madison Square Garden fully expecting the Bruins to hammer the final nail in the coffin on an incredibly disappointing New York Ranger season.   Well things absolutely did not work out as I had hoped.  The...

After the dramatic, come-from-behind victory, NESN’s Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley were rinkside at Madison...

Bruins Lose to the Bruins. BRUINS LOSE.

Not even concerned. Seriously. Fools like Stan Fischler are going to bring up all that 2010 crap. The Bruins learned from that. It won't happen again.  They beat themselves tonight. Really, they did. Rangers fans can try to tell us we're being sore losers or whatever but let's review: Rask just flat out fell on that first goal. Defense took themselves out of the...
