Boston Bruins

With the Boston Bruins focused on a potential Stanley Cup run, it appears that head coach Bruce Cassidy and Jake DeBrusk have buried the hatchet for the good of the team.

The Boston Bruins made some great moves before the NHL Trade Deadline this past Monday and now they may get a boost on offense before the regular season ends.

That and more in the BHN Bruins Wrap:

Boston Bruins

Have Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy and winger Jake DeBrusk buried the hatchet for the good of the team?

My partner-in-scribe at Boston Hockey Now, Joe Haggerty, said that Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney should also be applauded for the job he did before the deadline, specifically acquiring defenceman Hampus Lindholm.

After a successful trade deadline, could the Boston Bruins get another addition to their lineup soon in prospect Fabian Lysell?

NHL

The Eastern Conference playoff teams are set, but we could have some April madness in the West as the NHL season winds down.

Boston Bruins fans are surely loving the seemingly impending playoff doom for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

de brusk and his agent found out that no other teams were breaking down sweeney’s door to acquire him. he figured out that he was exactly in the best place for him — a team that over values him and is willing to pay him big money for mediocre and undependable play. i, too, could have made millions for being a schlub.
