Trust in Boston: A New Season

Here in New England, fall is quickly approaching. The leaves are starting to turn, football returns in a few short days, baseball is winding down towards the postseason and pumpkin spice lattes are literally everywhere. The return of cooler weather also means that hockey season is almost upon us, which brings mixed emotions for Bruins fans. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited for my favorite sport to be back underway (I already have tickets for a few games this fall) but that doesn't mean I'm not still skeptical of how this season will unfold. After missing the playoffs the last two years, a result that didn't sit well with Boston fans, the city is itching to rebound,...

5 Must-Sees at the Hockey Hall of Fame

As a sports fan in Boston, I'm very fortunate to have some of the best venues in sports right in my back yard; the oldest ballpark in the country is steps from my front door, the Bruins and Celtics play beneath rafters that boast almost 100 years of history, and state-of-the-art Gillette Stadium is one of the finest and most electric football stadiums in the country. But even as a resident of such a great sports town, I never turn down an opportunity to experience another city's fandom firsthand.

A Shorter Offseason

Well, the Stanley Cup Playoffs are over, leaving a weird hockey-less void on my television set, on the internet, and at the risk of sounding too dramatic, in my heart. A long, hot summer awaits until the NHL gets back into swing in October, but lucky for us, this offseason will be just a little bit shorter thanks to the comeback of the World Cup of Hockey. After a 12-year hiatus, the tournament returns in September for a two-week tournament at Toronto's Air Canada Center. The eight-team showcase is like the ultimate Olympic hockey intermission, falling perfectly between the 2014 and 2018 winter games. While confirmation of the World Cup's return was announced a while back, the jersey and roster announcements...

Lord Stanley Season

Damn, it's that time of year again. The Stanley Cup Finals. It's been a hockey whirlwind since the regular season ended. What started with sixteen teams is down to the final two for some of the best hockey of the year, so buckle up, folks. We're in for a wild ride. Aside from showcasing some of the best players and teams the league has to offer, the NHL playoffs and the trophy they're named for are different from that of any other sport for a number of reasons. The Stanley Cup itself dates back to the 1800s, and its history is as rich––if not richer––than the league it's passed around within. Since Ted Lindsay became the first captain to hoist the...

Boston vs. Chicago: The Madhouse Lives Up To Its Name

Taking advantage of having friends in great hockey cities, I ventured west to Chicago to see my hometown Bruins take on the Blackhawks in a pivotal Original Six matchup. Having only ever been to a handful of NHL rinks in my lifetime, it was my first trip to the Madhouse on Madison, and it certainly didn't disappoint. The prime-time matinee showdown was likely the earliest hockey game I've ever attended, with puck drop scheduled for 11:30 A.M. CST, but that didn't stop the crowds of Blackhawks fans –– as well as a surprising number of Bruins fans –– from making it out to the United Center just a few hours after sunrise on a Sunday morning.
