Boston Bruins

Steven Kampfer has found a true niche in the National Hockey League. However, playing his unique role has surely required a determination and mental fortitude that makes him a unique asset to any team he's been on. A prime example of the highs and lows that have followed the veteran defenseman throughout a career that has spanned nearly a decade came in a report the Boston Bruins put out Tuesday morning. Kampfer was reassigned to Boston's American Hockey League affiliate in Providence, R.I. It was the second time he'd been "demoted" this season and it came the very morning the big club was scheduled to play its last game before a combined nine days off for the bye week and the All-Star Break. Steven Kampfer, Boston Bruins (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) The Bruins have been looking for ways to break out of a slump, and part of the most recent experiment was sending Kampfer down and recalling young, big-bodied defenseman Jeremy Lauzon. The initial plan in calling on Lauzon...

Boston Bruins

Playing their final game before the start of the All-Star break on Tuesday night at the TD Garden, the Boston Bruins showed some fight and came away with a win that they would not have come away with during their recent play over the last two weeks. Trailing 2-1 entering the third period, the Bruins rallied for a 3-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights. Boston improved to 5-7-2 on the season when trailing entering the final period. There are three takeaways from the victory that can be viewed as positive steps moving forward for Boston when they begin the final two-month push to the playoffs in their final 31 regular-season games at the end of the month. 1. Second Line Scoring The Bruins second line of David Krejci, Charlie Coyle and Jake DeBrusk had a night that the club was hoping that they would have for a long time.

Vegas Golden Knights

BOSTON — David Krejci scored with 7:42 left to rally the Boston Bruins past the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 Tuesday night. Jake DeBrusk had a tying goal for Boston early in the third period, and Krejci also assisted on Jeremy Lauzon’s first goal of the season. Jaroslav Halak stopped 27 shots as Boston entered the All-Star break with a win following a 1-2-1 stretch. Mark Stone scored 1:24 into the game for Vegas and Nicolas Hague added his first career goal. Nate Schmidt had two assists for the Golden Knights, who fell to 1-1-1 under new coach Peter DeBoer. Marc-Andre Fleury made 34 saves. The Bruins trailed 1-0 and 2-1, but DeBrusk tied it on a wrist shot 4:26 into the third off a slick pass from Halak. Krejci then scored on his own rebound after tipping a point shot by Brandon Carlo. Krejci returned after missing two games with an upper-body injury Hague one-timed a slap shot off a pass from Schmidt for a power-play goal 10:59 into the second period to put the Golden...

NHL Rumors

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is news on who the Boston Bruins are targeting as their top target at the NHL Trade Deadline, plus who are the Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames targeting? Finally, how much of a role will player contracts play in trades made during this year's trade deadline hysteria? Bruins Targeting Kreider Over All Others NBC Sports Boston’s Joe Haggerty mentions that New York Rangers winger Chris Kreider appears to be the primary target of the Boston Bruins between now and the Feb 24 deadline. How they plan to make a trade work should be the most intriguing part. Chris Kreider, New York Rangers (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) Kreider is a natural left winger where the Bruins have some depth. All of Brad Marchand, Jake DeBrusk, Anders Bjork, and Danton Heinen are left-wingers meaning Bjork and Heinen might be moved over to the right side. The Bruins will also have issues affording Kreider's salary...
