The Eastern Conference Finals start on Saturday and the Boston Bruins will not be participating. Now that the offseason is upon us we must look to the future and talk about the roster for next year.
There was some very strange stuff in Joe Haggerty’s column before it was edited. He called in to explain himself.
Rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton made some comments following the Bruins 5-3 win that were a topic of discussion Monday morning on Toucher & Rich.
Yes, the B’s lost home ice advantage, but nobody in Boston should be pressing the panic button just yet according to CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty. Quite frankly, sometimes you play a good hockey game and still lose.
Another chapter to the Bruins-Canadiens rivalry is about to be written, and if the B’s can skate past the Habs, Joe Haggerty believes the Bruins won’t face a tougher opponent until the Stanley Cup Finals.
Haggs joined T&R Wednesday to analyze the Bruins-Red Wings Game 3 from last night, including the embellishment of Brad Marchand and the invisibility of the Bruins’ first line so far in the series.
Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard was great in Game 1 and awful in Game 2, so which performance is more in line with who he is as a player? Both, according to CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty.
The Bruins have largely been a consistent team over the course of the 2013-14 season, but there’s been intermittent points throughout the year where they’ve struggled to close out games, and it’s been happening more and more as of late — including twice already this week.
With seven games left to go in the regular season the NHL playoff race is still far from over, but if the season ended today the Bruins would draw the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round — which is exactly what Joe Haggerty of CSNNE is hoping for.
The Bruins are on top of the Eastern Conference and poised for another deep playoff run, all which wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding goaltending from Tuukka Rask this season.
