Jake DeBrusk and Linus Ullmark remained hot as the Boston Bruins won another one-goal game over the Tampa Bay Lightning to maintain third place in the Atlantic Division.

NHL

The mass exodus of University of Michigan players turning pro after the Wolverines were eliminated from The Frozen Four Thursday began Friday and as expected the No.1 pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, Owen Power inked an entry-level contract with the Buffalo Sabres Friday.

Power’s teammate, Kent Johnson, signed his entry-level contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday. Johnson was the fifth pick overall at the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Hart Trophy candidates Auston Matthews, Johnny Gaudreau and Jonathan Huberdeau are part of an offensive renaissance in the NHL.
