Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney hit the jackpot at the NHL Trade Deadline by acquiring winger Taylor Hall but he also hit a royal flush when he signed winger Craig Smith off the unrestricted free agent market last October.
The Boston Bruins aren’t resting on their laurels from Game 3 and are focused on improving their powerplay against the Washington Capitals in Game 4 tonight.
Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand expressed empathy for John Tavares and Corey Perry after the scary collision between his good friends in the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 1.
