The Boston Bruins keep on rolling with a 6-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

The Boston Bruins have done all they can and now it’s time for Jake DeBrusk to do the same.

Will Boston Bruins goalie Jeremy Swayman have to surrender his number to the rafters soon?

That and more in the BHN Daily:

 

Craig Smith scored his first hat trick in a Boston Bruins uniform; David Krejci stayed hot with three helpers on all three Smith goals and Nick Ritchie had a goal and an assist in a 6-2 win over the Sabres for the Bruins. Joe Haggerty has your ‘Talking Points’. (Boston Hockey Now)

Time and patience seem to be running out with Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk. DeBrusk has just one goal in his last 14 games and has only lit the lamp four times in 35 games. He was a healthy scratch Tuesday and Thursday and failed to light the lamp or have a significant impact on Saturday. (Boston Hockey Now)

Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand, Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews, Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon and Carolina Hurricanes center Sebastian Aho were named as the NHL’s Four Stars for the month of April.
