COMMENTARY RALEIGH, N.C. — The Boston Bruins needed to weather a storm before finding their legs in Game 3. But the opening surge from the desperate Carolina Hurricanes collided with a brick wall between the pipes. Tuukka Rask singlehandedly downgraded the Hurricanes’ surge to a tropical storm after 20 first-period saves. The Bruins then went to work to help out their veteran netminder. Walpole’s own Chris Wagner opened the floodgates with his second goal of the postseason just 1:21 into the second period. Brad Marchand added his sixth of the playoffs with a power play tally 5:07 later to give the Bruins some cushion.

MAYBE it’s the caffeine in Kiera Moss’s tall Latte or the fact that she’s sitting down to do an interview with The Irish News. Or maybe it’s a combination of both - but she doesn’t stay quiet for more than three seconds at a time. She’s an interviewer’s dream. The Ardoyne native is 33 going on 19. ‘Muzzy’, as her friends call her, is great company and immediately lifts the Wednesday afternoon gloom that has enveloped a rainy Royal Avenue. A former Northern Ireland international footballer, Kiera has recently returned from the homeless World Cup in Mexico where she picked up the player of the tournament gong. She could talk football all day. Don’t ask her what she’s won or where she’s played during her highly decorated career because she’s a little light on detail.

Had they gone inside, they might have seen the bodies, the blood. And, later, the dug up bathroom floor where the slain family was buried. Instead, it took two months for police to stumble across the murder of the Hidalgo County man's wife and children - but Ramos has long said he wasn't the one who did it. More than a quarter-century … [Read more...] about ‘Lord send me a chariot’: Mentally ill Mexican immigrant executed for triple slaying
