    5 game series? Should be 7. The AHL is a joke with the playoff structure

    Tough playoff year for the Bruins organization… top seeds falling early.

    Jon, I assume you folks are going to do an in-depth analysis of Hartford for us?

    Jake Leschyshyn is son of former Caps player Curtis. Jake scored twice for Hartford in deciding game against Providence Bruins. Good genes. Go Bears!

    Don’t let the rankings fool you. Hartford is the hottest team in the AHL right now, got their reinforcements from the Rangers
