Bruins Break Out Of Slump; NHL Trade Chatter

The NHL trade market is heating up and the Boston Bruins snapped their longest losing streak of the season as they headed into their mid-season hiatus.

That, Bruins and NHL news, and other NHL trade rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

Bruins winger Pavel Zacha was the star as the Boston Bruins pulled off a three-game skid heading into their mid-season hiatus with a resounding 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Prior to last night’s game, Brad Marchand was busy trolling the Toronto media and jokingly Maple Leafs winger Brad Marchand after calling a reporter from the Arizona Coyotes earlier in the week.

Marchand should also be credited with calming the masses amid the three-game losing streak heading into last night’s win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Boston Bruins star winger David Pastrnak has been named the NHL’s second star of the month.

While I agree with my Boston Hockey Now colleague Joe Haggerty that the current Boston Bruins roster doesn’t necessarily need a Bo Horvat right now, I don’t think it would have necessarily been a bad time to acquire the former Vancouver Canucks captain. in the commercial NHL market. The Bruins need a No. 1 center going forward, and Horvat could have filled that role and helped now as well. Now the New York Islanders have a strong chance of preventing the Bruins or the other 30 NHL clubs from signing Horvat in NHL free agency.

If the Boston Bruins are still interested in acquiring a center on the commercial NHL market, does Detroit Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin make sense to them, if he becomes available?
