The Boston Bruins currently sit just one point behind the Montreal Canadiens for third place in the Atlantic Division and are looking to bounce back from Tuesday's loss to the Winnipeg Jets.
Boston's hoping to see Tuukka Rask return to the lineup on Thursday night as the team hosts the Flyers and the Bruins can hopefully get back to the winning side of things.
With Boston having already enjoyed their Bye Week, and now the All-Star Break, the next boost will hopefully come from general manager Don Sweeney before the trade deadline.
NHL insider Darren Dreger reports that the Bruins have been looking at Washington Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky as a possible solution.
The 23 year old is in the final year of his contract and will become RFA after the season. He's been mentioned in some trade speculation since the start of the season and according to one of Dreger's sources, the Vancouver Canucks, Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens could show interest once again in the forward at the deadline.
The winger has just six goals and six assists so far this season, do you think he could help the Bruins out?
“I had a conversation with somebody who’s pretty tight and knows the situation well," and #Canucks, #NHLBruins, and #Habs "might circle back before the deadline" on Burakovsky. #Caps https://t.co/qY4JwBJrxk
