Bruins Daily: Swayman Activated; Scorching Devils; Karlsson Rumors
San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson is the hottest name in NHL trade rumors after Sharks general manager Mike Grier said he could trade Karlsson.
The Boston Bruins remain the best team in the NHL and don’t seem to be slowing down.
That and much more in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
Boston Bruins goalie Jeremy Swayman was ahead of schedule in his efforts to return from a lower-body injury and now he has been activated off injured reserve. However, it’s likely that head coach Jim Montgomery will go with Linus Ullmark against the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at TD Garden and turn to Swayman at home against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.
The Boston Bruins are rolling and remain the best team in the NHL, but don’t expect them to take their collective foot off the pedal. From Jim Montgomery to Patrice Bergeron and the players, this team is honed in on bigger goals.
Speaking of the historic start of the Boston Bruins, that had them ranked atop the first-ever BHN Lucky 7 Rankings which you can now find here at Boston Hockey Now every Wednesday.
