Brendan Smith reflects on the Tyler Seguin trade and why Reilly Smith has been a good fit with Bruins

Brendan Smith is a bit more vocal than Reilly Smith. Reilly, more of the shy type with the media, is extremely self-effacing. When things are going well, he’d rather somebody else get the credit. When things aren’t, he’s a little harder on himself. So it was interesting Friday to talk to his brother, a defenseman [...]

Brothers Brendan and Reilly Smith to meet in playoffs for 1st time

If it was last goal wins, Reilly said older brother Brendan would often make sure they kept playing until he scored it.
