That, more Boston Bruins, and NHL news. Also, the latest in NHL trade and free agent rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins won what, at times, felt like a Stanley Cup Playoff game that had little margin for error and beat the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Tuesday night. The Taylor Hall-David Krejci-David Pastrnak line was a major factor again.

Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing the last four games with his sixth concussion since the last game of the 2017 regular season.

Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery is ‘dying’ to pick the brain of future NFL hall of famer and New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick soon.

Don’t add political jabs to a freaking hockey column, Murphy. I’ll never click on your articles again. A**hat.


I think that you make an excellent point about Donald Trump. You’re right, he wasn’t a good president, he was a great president!


I agree Patrick, was and will again be a great president! Hey libby Jimmy, only joke here is you and your sports and political takes, . From now on I will read who the author is and be sure to pass on yours ,you clown.


After the reaction below, I hope you’ve learned not to use political opinion as an example, with an audience that is willing to drop the gloves!

Eric Penkauskas

LOL not everyone hides Jimmy. What’s the matter don’t like Alex cause he is Russian. Liberals are sure intolerant projectors. Another fact about liberals is they take low-risk jobs like writing. Not military, police, or firefighter. Are you 5 foot 8 with a Napoléon complex?

Dan O’Neill

You’re just another hit-n-run coward lib/dem cry baby. Can’t wait until 2weeks from now when you losers will be wetting your diapers. Too bad you can’t stick to talking hockey. Typical media hack.

Rick W Murray

Do you realize Jimmy is the only one with the guts to do that.
I wish more sports writers & politicians were like that. You know what I mean not wanting to anger a certain someone, somewhere.


Donald Trump was a good president. And you, Mr. Murphy, are a writer I shall no longer read.

Dave C

Dude- screw the Trump Talk. But Kessel plays here in Las Vegas.
I’ll take credibility for 400, Alex.
