Jimmy Hayes, Reilly Smith Settling In With New Teams After Trade (Video)

Jimmy Hayes and Reilly Smith will both face their prior teams for the first time Friday night. The Boston Bruins traded Smith and Marc Savard to the Florida Panthers for Hayes during the offseason, which appears to have worked out well for both squads so far. “So far you would say it’s probably been a fairly even trade, although I’m sure Jimmy Hayes would prefer to get that...

Flyers embarrassed in Florida, 7-1

An old adage suggests that hockey games can never be won in the first period, but they can be lost easily. For the Flyers, that adage was true for the first 20 minutes of Saturday's game against the Florida Panthers, as they fell 7-1. Just 6:46 into the first period, the Panthers (1-0-0) had already led 4-0, thanks to goals from Vincent Trocheck, Nick Bjugstad, Reilly Smith and...

Bruins fans ponder grassroots goal horn campaign

Hockey purists tend to hold a special place in their hearts for Original Six teams, and fans of the Boston Bruins take that elite status quite seriously. Some fans take it so seriously that mundane issues -- such as whether the team uses a goal horn or a pre-recorded sound for goals -- actually matter to the fanbase. It's no surprise then that one Bruins fan on Reddit objected so...

Bruins Will Have Plenty Of Jobs, Ice Time Up For Grabs Among Forwards In Camp

WILMINGTON, Mass — It’s been a while since the Boston Bruins have had as much ice time and forward spots on the NHL roster up for grabs as they do right now. But that’s what happens when you undergo a lot of changes in one summer. Milan Lucic, Reilly Smith, Daniel Paille and Gregory Campbell are gone. These departures create openings on all four lines, which is both exciting...

Smith on Panthers: 'They were a tough team to play against'

Reilly Smith feels strongly in the Florida Panthers, so much so that the former Boston Bruins forward admitted he didn't necessarily enjoy facing them last season."They were a tough team to play against. Everyone in the league thought that," the 24-year-old Smith told his new team's website. "They were pretty stingy, they put a lot of games into overtime and seemed they were winning...

Marc Savard getting traded in 2015 is ridiculous

Funny … After I went on about how the Boston Bruins were driving their fans insane, they actually had a pretty good week. They traded Martin Jones, who they got in the Milan Lucic deal, for a 2016 first round pick and a prospect. And on Wednesday, they made a seemingly innocuous trade when then sent Reilly Smith to Florida in exchange for Jimmy Hayes. It’s a fairly even trade...

Marc Savard Played Crucial Role In Bruins’ Resurgence To Contender Status

Marc Savard’s tenure with the Bruins ended Wednesday when he was traded with Reilly Smith to the Florida Panthers in a deal that sent Jimmy Hayes to Boston. The move marked the end of a nine-year run for Savard with the Bruins. Of course, the last four years have been difficult for the 37-year-old forward. He hasn’t played since January of the 2010-11 campaign after suffering...

The Panthers bought out the contract of right wing Brad Boyes on Wednesday, added five players shortly after the NHL free agency period opened and then picked...

You’d need more than two hands to point to who’s to blame for this Bruins season, but one of those...
