Boston Bruins Take on Dallas Stars, NFL Conference Championship Predictions and is Tom Brady Actually Retiring?

The Bruins are looking to increase their winning streak after beating the Arizona Coyotes on Friday by taking on the Dallas Stars tonight at 7 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). Boston beat Arizona 2-1 on the road and they will be the visiting team verses the Stars as well.

Goalie Tuukka Rask will be out with a lower body injury, so as of right now Ullmark will get the start against Dallas. Marchand, on the other hand, is doing very well and currently leads the team with 21 goals.

Boston leads the series against Dallas (1-0) as the Bruins beat them back in October 2021 3-1.

Both the National Football League’s NFC and AFC Championships are playing today and while I have no dog in this fight — my team the Carolina Panthers sucked, again, this year — I’ll be rooting for the Cincinnati Bengals and the San Francisco 49ers.

The Bengals QB Joe Burrow could potentially win a Super Bowl ring in his second year in the league if he and his team get passed the Chiefs.

The AFC match-up is expected to start at 3 pm EST on CBS and the NFC Championship is on FOX at 6:30 pm EST.

Here are my predictions:

Last, but not least, is Tom Brady actually retiring from the NFL? The short answer and as of right now, no. The latest reports are advising that he has refuted the ESPN claim that he is indeed retiring after 22 years in the league. His agent, Don Yee, even said, “I understand the advance speculation about Tom’s future. Without getting into the accuracy or inaccuracy of what’s being reported, Tom will be the only person to express his plans with complete accuracy. He knows the realities of the football business and planning calendar as well as anybody, so that should be soon.”

So will he retire? The answer is probably yes, but as of right now, he is still on the Tampa Bay Buccaneer roster and a go for the 2023 NFL season. We will just have to wait and see what the 7 time Super Bowl Champion will do with his future in the National Football League.

I will leave you with this, though. One of my fondest memories of Tom Brady was in Super Bowl 38 when the Patriots played my favorite team, the Carolina Panthers.

It was a close game and a hard fought game. One highlight in particular, which you can view below, features a much needed touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for my Panthers, though, that wasn’t enough and the Patriots ended up winning and giving Tom Brady Super Bowl ring #2.

When he retires, he definitely will be hard to catch with a possible unbreakable record of 7 Super Bowl Championships.
