Boston Bruins

Don’t expect a dramatic reunion on the ice for the Boston Bruins this coming season.

A legend between the pipes, that gave the Boston Bruins and plenty of other teams fits over the years announced his retirement on Friday.

Once again, the Arizona Coyotes are looking for a new home. Poutine anyone?

Two years ago today the hockey media world, the Boston Bruins and the hockey world in general lost a legend.

That and more in the latest Boston Hockey Now Puck Links:

Two years ago today, I lost a mentor and the hockey world lost a hall of fame puck scribe that worked an NHL dressing room like no other. I miss Russ Conway every day and would give anything to just pick up the phone and talk hockey with him right now. Sláinte Russ! Here’s a two-part tribute I wrote on Russ after he passed away. (Part 1 and Part 2)
