Bruins, Stars in blockbuster trade

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli recently said of Tyler Seguin, "He's gotta commit his mind and focus on the one task at hand. He's gotta become more of a professional." Soon after, Chiarelli must have decided Seguin should do that somewhere else, as reports show the 21-year-old, former second overall draft pick has been traded along with two teammates to the Dallas Stars. Did the Bruins pull off a better trade than their TD Garden Arena-mates the Boston Celtics? Will Seguin develop into an elite player in Dallas?

Stanley Cup: Blackhawks-Bruins

The Blackhawks are one win away from a Stanley Cup championship thanks to two goals from Patrick Kane in Game 5. However, injury concerns to a star player on each side -- Patrice Bergeron for Boston and Jonathan Toews for Chicago -- create an interesting sub-story to Game 6. What impact will the injuries have on the series? Will Chicago wrap it up in Game 6 or will the Bruins bounce back and treat sports fans to another Game 7?
