The fiery New York coach and CCHS Hall of Famer will lead his team against the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Game 1 is tonight, May 16, at the TD Garden.
He’s told the Caps to stop whining and admonished reporters over their questions, and now John Tortorella’s postseason ride brings his New York Rangers to Boston, to take on the Bruins in the NHL’s Eastern Conference semifinals. It’s the first time the two Original Six squads have faced each other in the postseason since Bobby Orr was in black-and-gold, but there’s a definite familiarity between the two sides. And it runs deeper than their being Eastern Conference rivals. Tonight’s game—the puck drops at 7:30 p.m. at the TD Garden—will be a homecoming of sorts for Tortorella, the fiery Rangers coach, who attended Concord-Carlisle High. His team topped the B’s twice in three games this season, and Tortorella told the Globe he sees no …

Rounding up Fenn's recent athletic action.
Wednesday, January 23
The following was provided on behalf of Fenn School. A five-goal outburst by Fenn's Will Robertson (Concord) vaulted Fenn School's Varsity hockey team to victory last week over a visiting Shore/Brookwood squad. Fenn wasted no time on Wednesday in getting started against visiting Shore/Brookwood, jumping out to a 5-0 first period lead en route to a 6-1 win. Robertson (Concord) scored five goals and Garren LaPlante (Stow) added a single tally. Jack Tyrie (Winchester) picked up the victory in his first Fenn career start. Against a hungry Fay team on Friday, Fenn suffered its first setback of the season. Fenn struggled with possession and was unable to sustain pressure in the offensive zone, while Fay took advantage of its second chances. …

Young hockey players from Concord and surrounding areas tune up at Greg Carter European Hockey School.
In Concord, hockey season never ends. That's why this past week, as temperatures outside hit the mid-80's, a group of young hockey hopefuls took the ice for the week-long Greg Carter European Hockey School at the Valley Sports rink on Main Street. A group of five to 10 year olds tuned up their skating, striding and stickhandling skills as Carter, who started his camp over 20 years ago after playing Division I hockey at UMass Lowell, darted around the ice to dole out instructions. "After college I tried some other jobs, but I just wasn't happy," Carter said. "To be able to teach kids the skills I learned when I was kid, that's more fun." Campers included a few Concord kids but also players from nearby towns, and one from as far away as …

James Terhune and Steven Van Sicklen help the Patriots fight back from a 2-0 deficit.
The Concord-Carlisle High School boys' hockey team competed for a hard-earned tie with Haverhill High School on Friday, giving both teams a well-deserved point. C-C (2-1-1) entered the game sluggish and fell two goals behind Haverhill (3-3-1) in the second period, but scraped back for two unanswered goals for the 2-2 tie. "We worked really hard," said the Patriots' coach Kevin Harrington. "Some of our youth is showing through, but we started to capitalize on our opportunities more at the end of the game. We just have to finish our chances. I've got to keep telling my goal scorers to be a little bit more selfish and shoot the puck." Haverhill entered the game hungry. It was still riding high off of an 8-0 win against Lynn. The Hillies …
