Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins Executive Director of Player Personnel could be tasked with cleaning up the mess for the Pittsburgh Penguins soon.

The rash of COVID postponements has hit the Bruins and they won’t play another home game until February 15.

The Boston Bruins won’t be pushed around anymore.

That and more in the latest BHN Daily:

 

The Boston Bruins could be losing a key figure in their pro and amateur scouting departments as John Ferguson Jr. is a finalist for the Pittsburgh Penguins GM job. There were rumors over the weekend that the former Toronto Maple Leafs GM was a candidate for the post and on Tuesday night the lads on TSN Insiders confirmed that the Penguins received permission from the Boston Bruins to interview Ferguson Jr who plays a pivotal role in pre-trade scouting for the Bruins.

The two-game Bruins’ set against the Buffalo Sabres Saturday and Monday at TD Garden has now been postponed and the new dates have not yet been set. This means the Boston Bruins will go 17 days between home games with their next match at TD Garden on February 15 against the New Jersey Devils. (Boston Hockey Now

The Boston Bruins are playing with a renewed physical edge to their game and they made it clear to the biggest and arguably the toughest team in the NHL, the Washington Capitals, that they won’t be pushed around anymore. When rookie Trent Frederic dropped the gloves with the toughest mofo in the league, Tom Wilson, that put an exclamation point on that message and said that this team may finally be getting back to ‘Big, Bad, Bruins’ hockey even if they’re smaller. My partner in crime Joe Haggerty has more. (Boston Hockey Now)

Media covering the Washington Capitals are questioning Wilson’s decision to fight Frederic when he did. (NBC Sports Washington)
