Good morning, everyone! The Bruins are back home tonight against the Blue Jackets after a successful road trip. Here’s hoping they can start converting some of that road success onto home ice!
NBC Sports had a couple of nice pieces during their Hockey Day In America coverage night. One is an interview with Denna Laing and her return to the ice in a wheelchair. The other is about Doc Emrick’s visit with his hockey broadcasting mentor. I highly recommend watching both.
The Maple Leafs got an early start to their fire sale, trading Shawn Matthias to Colorado for a fourth round pick and a minor league prospect. The Leafs currently have 12 draft picks in the 2016 Entry Draft, and the record is 13 in a 7-round draft. With plenty of pieces still for sale, expect the Leafs to blow past that record by the trade deadline.
What’s on tap?
