Boston Bruins

Can the Boston Bruins finally snap out of their current funk against the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday afternoon at TD Garden?

Has NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr really been cleared of any wrongdoing in the handling of the Kyle Beach allegations?

The Mike Bossy tributes and stories keep flowing.

That and more in the latest BHN Daily:

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are officially in a slump having lost four of their last five games. How much of that can be attributed to the sudden rash of injuries the Bruins have experienced over the last ten days and how much of it is the team not playing good enough? My partner-in-scribe at BHN, Joe Haggerty gives his take and once again Bruce Cassidy gave him some juicy quotes to work with as he continues to call out his players.

Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark will not suit up for the Bruins game against the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday afternoon.

Here’s a look at the Stanley Cup Playoffs race prior to the Bruins matinee battle with the Penguins Saturday.

NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr wasn’t exactly cleared of any wrongdoing or lack of action in the Kyle Beach allegations and many still have questions for him.

Mr.Gumball

With Troy in net they might have a chance with Swayman automatic loss they also need Lindholm and Pastrnak back in the lineup they’ve had enough rest, get back in the lineup and help your team.

Patrick

If you feel the overwhelming urge to post a comment, could you at least make it a positive one! As a life-long Bruins fan, I listened for far too many years as so-called Bruins fans trashed Tuukka Rask, one of our all-time greatest goalies. Now you’re dissing on our next franchise netminder. And if you ever actually read the posts from Jimmy and Joe, or followed Coach Cassidy’s insights, you would know that Lindholm and Pastrnak are not resting, they’re injured!

Mr.Gumball

Have to agree with Gumball, the bruins with their lineup and Swayman in goal will lose

JustJim

Someone has done a mind **** to Swayman. Previous performance, when he first arrived, shows his excellenve at reading plays and seeing pucks. Now he spends his time trying to cut down angles, is out of position, etc. He is either being overcoached, or somebody is giving him wrong information.

JustJim

Correct on that point! Probably just a confidence thing.
