Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins extended their win streak to four games with a 6-3 win over the New York Islanders and temporarily, at least, took over second place in the Atlantic Division.

Now-former Northeastern defenseman Jordan Harris signed his entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

That and more in the latest BHN Bruins Wrap:

Erik Haula, Taylor Hall and Brad Marchand each had a goal and an assist in a dominating win over the Islanders Saturday.

As my partner-in-scribe, Joe Haggerty wrote, Hampus Lindholm has come as advertised for the Boston Bruins.

National Hockey Now

NYI: Will forward Anthony Beauvillier remain with the New York Islanders past this season?

Pittsburgh: Evgeni Malkin is injured again and wasn’t at Pittsburgh Penguins practice on Saturday.

Philly: Just like Bruins fans and media do with the 2015 NHL Draft blunders of Don Sweeney, Philadelphia Flyers fans and media won’t let got of the fact that former Flyers and current Penguins general manager Ron Hextall passed on defenseman Cale Makar at the 2017 draft and took now former Flyers forward Nolan Patrick.

Florida: Hart Trophy candidate and Florida Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau is set to rack up another milestone.

Detroit: Darren McCarty’s Game 4 goal in the 1997 Stanley Cup Final that helped the Detroit Red Wings beat the Philadelphia Flyers for their first Stanley Cup since 1955 is still one of my favorite hockey moments. Great to see McCarty still doing great on and off the ice!

Colorado: Avalanche defenseman/swingman Kurtis MacDermid is the type of player every contender needs.

Vegas: Could the voided trade to the Anaheim Ducks become the best thing to ever happen in Vegas Golden Knights forward Evgenii Dadonov’s career?

Canada Hockey Now

Montreal: Now-former Northeastern defenseman and Haverhill, MA native Jordan Harris will be signed an entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens Saturday.

Vancouver: Welcome back to Vancouver Canucks President of Hockey Operations Jim Rutherford who made it through a 12-day bout with COVID. The game is a better place with Jim in and around it!

NHL

Minnesota University freshman winger Matthew Knies was one of the heroes for the Gophers in their 3-2 overtime win over UMass-Amherst in the Worcester Regional on Friday. There’s a solid chance he could be playing at TD Garden in the Frozen Four in two weeks; could he be doing so for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs?
