Boston Bruins

Here’s a recap of the week that was regarding the Boston Bruins:

Murphy’s Hockey Law Podcast: One of the arguments against Brad Marchand becoming the next captain of the Boston Bruins is that he drives referees crazy and wouldn’t be good for the necessary rapport a captain needs with the officials.
