The Bruins had three days off after their win over the Jets on Sunday night and headed down to Florida for two games.
The B’s took an early two goal lead over the Lightning and ended up holding on to win 4-2. Nathan Horton scored twice in the win and almost had the hat trick, but hit two posts.
98.5 The Sports Hub’s Bruins play-by-play announcer Dave Goucher spoke with Johnston & Flynn, who were filling in for Toucher & Rich, about the win in Tampa Bay, Brad Marchand and Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli being spotted talking with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren.
The guys talked about Nathan Horton’s two goal night and how if he gets going he’ll be hard to stop and would help him in his contract year.
Brad Marchand should be in a contract year as well, but the Bruins locked him up with four-year contract extension last season. A decision that is proving to be a great move.
“He’s terrific! He’s got nine goals now…”
A story getting some attention is Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli being spotted talking with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. The B’s GM was in Pittsburgh to watch the Penguins-Flyers game, Chiarelli chatted with Holmgren for the entire intermission between the second and the third period.
Could the Bruins be looking to make a deal with the Flyers in an effort to get better?
