Bruins Daily: Lightning-Bruins; Horvat Cost; Monahan
The Tampa Bay Lightning struck the Boston Bruins for the first time this season, and the cost for the Bruins to acquire Bo Horvat on the NHL trade market is very high.
That, Bruins and NHL news, and more NHL trade rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
So, if you’re Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney, are you willing to part with Brandon Carlo or Jake DeBrusk, a top prospect and a 2023 first round pick to pry Vancouver Canucks captain Bo Horvat off the NHL Trade market?
Andrei Vasilevskiy was up to his old cat tricks and the Tampa Bay Lightning handed the Boston Bruins just their sixth loss in regulation Thursday night in Tampa.
Veteran Lightning winger Corey Perry was his usual dirty self on Thursday night so Boston Bruins defenseman Connor Clifton taught him a lesson.
Boston Bruins winger Taylor Hall played most of the game Thursday riding shotgun on the first line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. After snapping a 16-game goalless drought on Tuesday though, Hall was held pointless.
NESN play-by-play man Jack Edwards tried to apologize to Lightning winger Pat Maroon in person after the Lightning’ game-day skate on Thursday. Edwards had made an off-the-cuff and offensive comment about Maroon’s weight earlier in the season. The apology attempt apparently didn’t go well.
