Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo skated with his team Friday but should the Bruins claim right-shot defenseman Andrej Sustr off waivers today?
That, more Boston Bruins, and NHL news. Also, the latest in NHL trade and free agent rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo took a positive step towards returning to the lineup Friday as he skated (in a non-contact jersey), at practice. Carlo has been out of the lineup since suffering an upper-body injury in the first period of a 6-3 Bruins win over the Arizona Coyotes a week ago.
After scoring in the season-opening 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals, Boston Bruins winger Taylor Hall went three games without lighting the lamp. On Thursday though he delivered big-time with the game-tying goal to force overtime and then the shootout winner.
