The Blue Line Report: Playoff performance will ultimately determine Panthers' legacy


”We’ve got to stick with the same thing we’ve said all season: one game at a time, one shift at a time,” said head coach Kristian Hanson. “No way we can afford to be looking ahead. The next game is our biggest; that should be our only focus.”


We already knew that Andrew ‘Biscuits’ Bisconti was a great guy. But since actions speak louder than words, you can be the judge.

Bisconti, a forward who serves as one of Peabody’s senior captains, stopped by Mrs. Kinnaly’s third grade class last week to reach to children at the Capt. Samuel Brown Elementary School in Peabody. A former Brown School student, Bisconti read his favorite book about twisted tales to the boys and girls, and also spoke with them from the heart about the importance of being a good citizen, getting good grades, giving back to the community and how hard work helps realize your dreams.

Bisconti is just the latest example of the Peabody hockey captains going out to the elementary schools; the other Tanner captains, Derek DeMild, Mike Vadala and Guiseppe Zarro, have been out to Mrs. Davies’ first grade class and Mrs. Cokorogianis’ fourth grade students at the Brown School.
