BHN Daily: Rask Shines In Loss, Dubois NHL Trade Rumors



NHL Trade

Through three games this season, the Boston Bruins still don’t have an even-strength goal but while some are already, and once again, clamoring for GM Don Sweeney to find a goal scorer on the NHL Trade market, our own Joe Haggerty found some positives from their 1-0 loss to the New York Islanders Monday in the BHN Talking Points.

Unfortunately, goal-scoring isn’t the only thing Sweeney might be looking for on the NHL Trade market this week. Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk suffered what appeared to be a hand or arm injury in the second period Monday and his status for the Bruins’ home opener against the Flyers Thursday is unknown.

As Haggs pointed out in his BHN Talking Points, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask was brilliant in the loss Monday but so was the guy at the other end. Christian Arnold has more on another shutout for Semyon Varlamov. (NYI Hockey Now)

Monday’s games between the New York Islanders and the Boston Bruins was the final home opener for the storied Nassau Coliseum. As if that wasn’t bittersweet though, the Islanders and those in the Coliseum were literally left with an empty feeling. (Newsday)

Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella fueled the NHL trade rumors surrounding his best forward Pierre-Luc Dubois last week when he publicly called on Dubois to come clean on why he wants out of Columbus. Is the media though, creating a bigger rift than there is between coach and player here? (TSN)

You really should check your heartbeat if you’re not cheering for a guy like Bobby Ryan to have a bounceback season with the Detroit Red Wings. After winning the Masterton Trophy last season, Ryan is finding his game again in Motown. Longtime friend Donny Brennan has more. (Ottawa Sun)

The Boston Bruins saw a lot of Kasperi Kapanen in the Atlantic Division when he played for the Toronto Maple Leafs. After years of being part of NHL Trade rumors, the Leafs finally dealt him back to his original team, the Pittsburgh Penguins and now the Bruins will see him eight times this season in the new East Division. National Hockey Now owner and the main man for Pittsburgh Hockey Now, Dan Kingerski, has more Kapanen being back in Pitt. (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

A pandemic isn’t stopping our colleague Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now from traveling this season and as he embarked on his first Colorado Avalanche road trip of the season, AD reminisced about roadies from the past. (Colorado Hockey Now)

On Tuesday morning, I tweeted out a poll to hockey fans asking who will have the better goaltending duo this season: 




The Montreal Canadiens with Carey Price and Jake Allen or the Boston Bruins with Tuukka Rask and Jaro Halak? If the first three games for both clubs are any indication, both goalie tandems may be battling it out for the Jennings Trophy this season and as friend and colleague, Eric Engels writes, acquiring Allen on the NHL trade market this past offseason is already looking like a brilliant move for Habs GM Marc Bergevin.
