Boston Bruins

So far, a strong argument could be made that the Boston Bruins have reaped the benefits of their NHL Trade Deadline acquisitions more than any other NHL team but will those trades force Bruins General manager Don Sweeney to trade one or more of the forwards currently playing on the third line?

Did the Boston Bruins simply hit the proverbial wall again in their 6-4 loss to the Buffalo Sabres Thursday?

Former Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas is slowly reentering the hockey world after recovering from a traumatic brain injury near the end of his storied NHL career.

That and more in the Boston Hockey Now Daily!

 

The additions of forwards Taylor Hall and Curtis Lazar as well as defenseman Mike Reilly before the NHL Trade Deadline appeared to rejuvenate a stagnant offense for the Bruins who went on a six-game win streak after those players arrived. However, the Bruins may pay a bigger price than they did before the NHL Trade Deadline and be forced to move one or more of Jake DeBrusk, Charlie Coyle, and Nick Ritchie in the offseason.
