Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk is still on the NHL trade market and likely to be dealt before the NHL Trade Deadline. Is there any chance that could change or is his relationship with head coach Bruce Cassidy broken beyond repair?
The Boston Bruins avoided letting another blown lead in the third period send them to overtime in a 3-2 win over the Blackhawks Thursday as the pasta was served al dente.
That and more in the latest Bruins Wrap:
David Pastrnak made sure that another blown lead in the third period didn’t lead to extra time and bailed the Bruins out with the game-winner with just 17.2 seconds left in regulation.
The Jack Ahcan postgame media session after the win Thursday was one of those reminders of why we love hockey and sports. Refreshing, raw love of the game. Congrats to Jack on his first NHL goal.
Is the relationship between Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk and head coach Bruce Cassidy broken for good? Ray Ferraro gives his take to my partner-in-scribe at BHN, Joe Haggerty, and me.
Speaking of DeBrusk, he’s No. 8 on the TSN Trade Bait List and the only Boston Bruins player on the list of 50 NHL trade candidates.
