Boston defeated Las Vegas 3-2 in a shootout in Nevada. David Backes scored the game winner in the shootout, Jake DeBrusk and Charlie McAvoy continued their point streaks, andJaroslav Halak was brilliant yet again. The Bruins' win streak stands at 7 games.
The Boston Bruins dove into the NHL trade pool acquiring Charlie Coyle from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for prospect Ryan Donato and a fifth-round draft pick.
I am not sure where to start with the Celtic’s first half drama. We can point fingers at Brad Steven’s not being able to control NBA player’s egos, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris’ confrontation, or even veteran players versus the young guys. That being said, the blame is on one person and one person only, the top 10 baller on planet earth: Kyrie Andrew Irving. Kyrie’s the leader of the team, the closer, and the assassin. He has to keep the drama in house. Kyrie’s recent interview with Rachel Nichols, is even more evidence of Irving not ignoring this noise and not being the boss, the man, the chief, the LEADER. Unfortunately, Kyrie does talk too much and he needs to work on being mindful on not allowing the media interfere with the job at hand.
The Boston Bruins have shown interest in Ottawa Senators winger Mark Stone. Stone, 26, will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year. Here’s why the Bruins should try to swing a deal right now:
I have taken an official stance on the "Trade Tatum" dilemma. For months, I have been on the fence about it. In one instance I'd say "no way do I want to move him" and a day later I go back on that and say something completely contrary.
I did not think we could beat last years free agency in terms of how boring it was but here we are on February 19th. Manny Machado just barely signed today; he was originally supposed to make his decision on or just after Christmas. So since there is not much to talk about so I am going to rank my favorite player from each team in the American League Central. Let's dive in!
With no warning, no notice, no nothin' I jumped on a live stream to discuss all of this Kyrie Irving drama. I held nothing back. I said it multiple times... I LOVE the player on the court, but sadly have begun to hate the off-court Hollywood wannabe. That did not seem to resonate with many of you watching live.
So, I have declared myself off the championship wagon multiple times this year. If you follow along with my Celtics fandom, you most likely know I have (or had) lowered my expectations for this year. On my Celtics LIVE Postgame streams, I had mentioned that I didn't believe a championship was coming to Boston basketball this year. In fact, I had said they wouldn't even come close. Well, I may be changing my stance on that... just maybe.
At long last, the wait is over. Manny Machado, who spent more time as a free agent than he did as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has signed a contract.
Two of the NHL's hottest teams clashed tonight in San Jose as the Bruins closed out their California trip against the Sharks. The Bruins (7-0-3 in their last 10) and the Sharks (7-3-0 in their last 10) would meet up for the first time this season. Coming off a stellar outing against the Kings, Tuukka Rask would tend the net once more for Boston. While Martin Jones would go opposite him for San Jose.
