The Bruins continue to look to add at least one more forward to their current group that begins the second half of the regular season with a big divisional tilt tonight against the Buffalo Sabres.
Don Sweeney has been very active on the phone with other GMs around the league trying to engineer a trade at a time of year when players don’t normally get moved. It’s clearly a byproduct of watching the Bruins continue to rotate through Joakim Nordstrom, Ryan Donato, Danton Heinen, Anders Bjork and now David Backes while looking for a match with David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk.
“[David Krejci’s] numbers are up and obviously, some of that is playing on the top line,” said Bruce Cassidy, who has done his best to juggle forwards in the first half, but clearly could use at least one more quality veteran NHL forward to add to the group. “But he’s got to find the missing piece over there [on the right wing] to help them out and really be a two-headed monster [with the top two lines].”
