Sean Burns has created Hearts4Hockey to ensure every local hockey team has access to the life-saving AED medical equipment.
Most might assume Milford native Sean Burns is just the average teenage boy whittling away the lazy days of summer at football practice and with friends. But this driven 14-year-old, who is an avid hockey player, is dedicating his time to a unique and worthwhile cause he has named Hearts4Hockey. Burns created Hearts4Hockey eight months ago after a Milford High School hockey player was struck in the chest by a puck during a game in Marlborough and went into cardiac arrest. Fortunately, the school trainer had access to an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), and the boy survived. But if the school had not had the AED, the player might not have lived. "Although most schools have an AED, they aren't devoted to the hockey team. I plan on …

Local fans demonstrated their unity with the home team outside a local pub Wednesday night after the successful conclusion of Game 7.
While thousands caused havoc in the streets of Vancouver after the conclusion of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoffs, just as many rejoiced in the streets of Boston celebrating the home team's convincing victory. In Marlborough, however, things were relatively quiet save the exuberance of some locals who gathered at Sully's First Edition Pub off Main St. To show their support and celebrate the win, locals ceremonially "retired" a Canucks jersey cheering all the way.

You've waited 39 years for the Cup. So how do you feel? Send us your Bruins photos. Share your thoughts on the season and the journey.
Behind a 37-save performance from goalie Tim Thomas, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972 with a 4-0 shutout of the Vancouver Canucks. Thomas won the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoff MVP, Mark Recchi retired after winning his third Cup and four decades of pain were purged for Bruins fans. So how do you feel? Did this invoke memories of Orr flying through the air after scoring the winning goal against the St. Louis Blues in Game 4 of the 1970 finals? Or what about "Chief" Johnny Bucyk and the '72 B's taking down the New York Rangers on their own ice at Madison Square Garden. Did you lose interest in the B's during the lean years the mid-90s and early '00s or did you stick it out through the mediocrity, hoping…

Marlborough native Bobby Butler was recently called up to the Ottawa Senators, and will start in his second game versus the Boston Bruins this evening.
Marlborough High School grad, and former UNH hockey star Bobby Butler will face the Boston Bruins tonight for the second time in his NHL career. Butler, who plays for the Ottawa Senators, was brought up to the NHL from the organization's affiliate, the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League, after team captain Daniel Alfredsson took himself out of the line-up several weeks ago with lower back problems. Butler had 22 goals and 33 points in 46 games for Binghamton before being called up to the NHL, and has scored multiple goals for Ottawa since, including one in the second period of the first game in which he faced the Bruins mid-February. The Bruins won that bout 4-2. The game will air on NESN beginning at 7:30 p.m.

No need to venture out of Marlborough to stay busy and have fun!
February vacation is upon us and school children across the nation are home enjoying a reprieve from long school days and tiresome homework. Having enjoyed one of the snowiest winters thus far in New England’s history, children are looking for activities that do not include making snowmen, building snow forts or partaking in snowball fights. Instead, they are looking for entertainment at home or on the road. For moms and dads this means finding creative ways to keep the kids happy and occupied. Beyond board games, baking and books, arranging friend visits makes for a fun-filled afternoon. Popping popcorn and watching a movie, having a picnic lunch on the family room floor, or popping a tent in the basement for a “camp in” will keep kids …
