With the Boston Bruins finally nearing the end of their de facto bye week, things are about to heat up for the Black and Gold. Starting with the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night, the Bruins will play six games in 10 days. Thanks to their two huge layoffs so far,...
Over the last few years, Anton Blidh has become a familiar name to Boston Bruins fans. Heading into the 2021-2022 campaign, he had appeared in 38 NHL games over the past five years. Blidh has never been able to stick on the NHL roster, but he has been hard to keep out of the lineup in his latest stint. While the season is far from over, his play has been a welcoming surprise.
The Bruins and Sabres would likely prefer to forget about their last outings. Boston was shut out at home against its former goalie Dan Vladar. Buffalo gave up seven goals against the Blue Jackets and have now lost four of its last five. This matchup could be very close, at...

BOSTON (CBS) — The Bruins’ annual day-after-Thanksgiving matinee brought with it some news about their former goaltender … and perhaps their future goaltender.
Early in the second period, play-by-play announcer Sean McDonough revealed that he spoke with Tuukka Rask on Thursday night.
Rask told McDonough that his rehab from surgery to repair a torn hip labrum is “going very well,” and that he’ll begin ramping up his skating beginning next week.
“He hopes that he can play as early as January,” McDonough said of Rask, who also noted his desire to play for the Bruins.
That update has Rask on the...

BOSTON (CBS) — When it became clear that the Rangers were going to win the Black Friday matinee matchup against the Bruins on Friday afternoon, emotions boiled over. A leg was extended, a cross-check was delivered, and … a glove was thrown.
These things happen sometimes.
In this case, it involved Rangers forward Artemi Panarin and Bruins winger Brad Marchand. After a Charlie McAvoy tripping penalty ignited a fracas in front of the Rangers’ bench in the game’s final minutes, the two teams were eventually separated. McAvoy was assessed a two-minute minor, as was Rangers winger Barclay Goodrow for...
The Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys find themselves heading into Sunday’s game in very different places. The Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints last week to get to 4-4 on the season -- just a game out of the NFC Wild Card race after a rocky start to the season. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are coming off of a surprising loss to the Denver Broncos in what was easily Dak Prescott’s worst game of the season. They are, however, still 6-2. There’s no panic in Dallas yet.
The Chicago Blackhawks and former general manager Stan Bowman surprised many this offseason with some big power moves making the Hawks into what some believed was a contender. However that's been far from the case. With Bowman and head coach Jeremy Colliton fired, new head coach Derek King has slightly...
Patric Hornqvist was back in a familiar spot Thursday. Near the crease of one of the net in PPG Paints Arena. Thursday’s contest between the Florida Panthers and Pittsburgh Penguins was the first in Pittsburgh since Hornqvist was traded to the Panthers in exchange for defenseman Mike Matheson and forward Colton Sceviour in September 2020.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have encountered an up and down start to the 2021-22 season. There’s been lots of chatter about the injury bug and COVID-19’s ugly face, but there have also been a few players who have not performed to expectations. One, in particular, is backup goaltender Casey DeSmith, and it may be time for Penguins management to find a replacement.
The NHL's waiver wire had a couple noticeable names pop up on Wednesday afternoon. According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, forwards Nate Bastian (SEA) and Patrick Harper (NSH) were placed on waivers. Harper was placed on unconditional waivers for a contract termination. Bastian, 23, was selected by the Seattle Kraken...
Playing on the eve of Thanksgiving has been a tradition for the Detroit Red Wings since the franchise's first year in the NHL.
Then known as the Detroit Cougars, they hosted the Chicago Black Hawks — the spelling was changed to Blackhawks in 1986 — on Nov. 24, 1926, and won, 1-0. Back then, the holiday...

Two of the top ranked men's college basketball teams at the start of the 2021-22 season will compete against each other on national television Friday night when No. 4 Villanova visits No. 2 UCLA. This game is the closest ranked matchup so far in the college basketball season, and it...

Browns Game Today: Browns vs Patriots injury report, schedule, live stream, TV channel, and betting preview for Week 10 NFL game. The Cleveland Browns are coming off a huge Week 9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals which put them back in the AFC North race. It also ended a week of controversy as Odell Beckham, Jr. forced his way out of town ahead of that game.
It’s been an eventful week for these two teams to say the very least. The New England Patriots have made a bevy of roster moves over the past seven days, including activating quarterback Jarrett Stidham to the 53-man roster and seeing some shuffling within their practice squad. The Cleveland Browns, well they made a few moves as well. They placed their top two remaining running backs, including Pro Bowl Nick Chubb, on the COVID list, while finalizing the release of former Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Maybe you’ve heard of him.
(CBS4) – The Colorado Avalanche are riding a 5-game win streak and coming off an exciting 7-5 win over the Ottawa Senators. That has placed positive notice back on the Avs, and at a time when the hockey team’s superstar is watching from the bleachers.
Heading into the Thanksgiving week with a step ahead on the ice is always considered a notable measure of a team nearing the halfway mark of the NHL season. The CBS Sports pre-Thanksgiving NHL rankings boosted the Avs up three spots to put them at No. 10, as the league’s contenders come into focus.
