It’s the first Sports Hub Hockey Show since the trade deadline! Ryan Johnston, Judd Sirott and Bob Beers talk about the Bruins 8-4 win over Pittsburgh, the addition of Rick Nash and Nash’s impact on David Krejci. NBC Sports Boston’s Joe Haggerty joins the guys to discuss Tuukka Rask’s play in the past two weeks, Don Sweeney’s trade deadline acquisitions and Patrice Bergeron’s injured foot.
In the second hour, Ryan, Judd and Bob examine what Tommy Wingels and Brian Gionta will bring to the Bruins. They talk about Danton Heinen and Brandon Carlo rebounding from being healthy scratches, Charlie McAvoy’s competitiveness and Zdeno Chara’s heavyweight fight against Jamie Oleksiak. And NESN’s Billy Jaffe called in from Annapolis, where he’s covering tonight’s Stadium Series game, to discuss Tampa adding McDonagh and Philadelphia and Florida’s second half surges.
