ST. LOUIS (AP) — Punch, counterpunch, Game 7. Just when it looked like the Boston Bruins were down and out, they remembered they can throw their weight around, too. Boston showed it can play St. Louis' physical style of hockey and then some, and the Stanley Cup Final is tied at 3-3 with Boston...

BOSTON (AP) — Brandon Lowe hardly looks like he has the build of someone that hit two balls as deep as he did in Fenway Park. He even surprised his own team. Lowe hit a pair of solo homers into the center-field bleachers that totaled 890 feet, Blake Snell baffled Boston's lineup and the Tampa Bay...

More than two decades since Fetisov and the “Russian Five” shattered the myth that NHL teams couldn’t win with players from a nation unpopular in North America, Tarasenko and Barbashev are one victory away from lifting the same Cup after being inspired by the generation of countrymen who endured so much to get there.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Patrick Maroon doesn't want to go there. Not even about how the St. Louis Blues handle the roller coaster of inconsistent officiating. "I'm not talking about it," the usually talkative Maroon said. "If you want to talk about Game 6, I'll talk about Game 6." Except the St. Louis...

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — After first hiring a new coach, Sabres general manager Jason Botterill addressed his next most pressing offseason need by re-signing leading scorer Jeff Skinner.

Something is missing from Boston's power play. The uninterrupted puck movement and cross-ice passes to a wide-open David Pastrnak aren't there anymore. Torey Krug isn't getting the chance to fire away from the top. Patrice Bergeron isn't dominating between the faceoff circles like before. Boston...
