The Daily: Are Boston Bruins Leaving the Door Open for Red Wings?



Boston Bruins hope a David Pastrnak surge can get their scoring back on track

The Boston Bruins are a more accomplished team than the Detroit Red Wings. But they have not been showing that of late. Since Jan. 24, the Bruins are 4-5-4. Meanwhile, the Red Wings have won three of our their last four and four of their last six.

The Bruins are still eight points ahead of Detroit and have two games in hand. But that is an improvement over where the Red Wings were two weeks ago.  One concern for the Bruins is their scoring has been sub-par.

Over the past 11 games, the Bruins are scoring an average of 1.90 goals per game. Brad Marchand’s suspension did not help. By contrast, the Red Wings are averaging 3.77 goals per game over the past nine games.

However, there are signs that Bruins forward David Pastrnak is about to heat up.

Boston Hockey Now  has reported the Bruins are expected to be active in the trade market. Today, the website offered that the Bruins could be interested in Anaheim defenseman Josh Manson, son of former NHL player Dave Manson. They have also talked to the Arizona Coyotes about Jakob Chychrun.
