  1. A Bruins fan has a soft spot in his heart for the Lightning

    September 20. 1990 was when hockey was born in Tampa Bay and I was there. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A crowd of 25,581, more than 4,500 above the National Hockey League single-game record, turned out Wednesday night to see the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Kings, 5-3, in an exhibition game at the Suncoast Dome. Phil and Tony Esposito called in favors to promote that game and found 3 media backers to help promote the game - Nanci Donnellan from WFNS, Tedd Webb from WFLA Radio and Chris Thomas...
  2. Bruins vs Maple Leafs - An older Bruins fan's perspective

    :wally: When I was a teenager growing up in Boston the Bruins were the laughing stock of the NHL as they failed to make the playoffs from the 1959-60 season thru 1966-67. Toronto at the same time was a dynasty, and I can remember listening to games on the radio with my Dad from CBL 740 Toronto. The highlight of that era came when the Bruins beat the Leafs 11-0 at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1964, The Bruins have not lost a playoff series to Toronto since 1959 but that is partly due to the Leafs...
  3. Could the 2019 Winter Classic be the game where the 'bloom falls off the rose'?

    The NHL has done well with selling tickets at all the outdoor games the past 10 years but they may have a real headache in trying to sell tickets in South Bend, Indiana next year. Up until now every outdoor game in the US had teams that were a reasonable drive to the venue but Boston is 900 miles from South Bend and that drive in late December is risky because of possible lake effect snow from Buffalo to Toledo on I-90. I-80 is an alternative but still risky that time of year. Chicago is...
  4. Food Options when visiting Montréal

    This is the second in a series on where visiting hockey fans can get comfort food when traveling to another city to cheer on their team. Last month we took a look at Buffalo, NY. Montréal has an excellent public transportation network of subway (Metro) and buses and Uber is a popular option. The 24 hour unlimited transit pass is a fine value. Montréal is famous for its smoked meat sandwiches and locals fiercely debate where you can get the best sandwich. Here are my personal favorites....
  5. Food Options for Hockey Fans visiting Buffalo, New York

    This will be the first column of dining options around the NHL world. When I am on the road I try to eat where the locals do and avoid chains. Western New York has always been known for casual dining and comfort food. The city is best known for 'Buffalo Wings'. Legend has it that they were invented in 1964 almost by accident at the Anchor Bar located at 1047 Main St (METRO - Summer-Best Station) There are also several suburban locations but I would stick with the mothership. The local at...
