Bruins general manager Don Sweeney isn't expecting to make a trade before next Wednesday's deadline.

"I haven’t been overly aggressive to say that I would (make a trade)," he said. "I’m sort of doing my due diligence on which players will be available with a better understanding of what the costs are going to be. I haven’t been necessarily 100 percent saying I’m going to (make a trade). For me, it’s probably erring on the other side of it, saying we may not." Plenty of general managers have come out and said they don't expect to make any moves, but we'll take those comments with a grain of salt. It's clear that contending general managers are using the media to send a message to all the sellers because the prices are too high.

David Krejci scored an empty-netter Thursday in a 4-1 win against Los Angeles to continue his hot play of late.

He has accounted for eight points, including five helpers, in the past eight contests. Krejci hasn't gone more than two games without picking up a point since Dec. 18-Dec. 22.

David Pastrnak potted his 26th goal of the season on Thursday night.

He scored what turned out to be the game winner during the second period on a Bruins power play. His sixth marker in the last seven games pulled him even with Brad Marchand, who also scored in Thursday's 4-1 win over Los Angeles, for the team lead.
Feb 24 - 8:35 AM

Anton Khudobin turned aside 27 shots in a 4-1 win over Los Angeles on Thursday.

Making his first start since Feb. 11, the Bruins got exactly what they needed from their backup-which has been rare this season. He really hasn't been good this year with a 3-5 record, a 2.84 GAA and .896 save percentage but this will definitely allow the Bruins more confidence when Tuukka Rask needs a break.

Brad Marchand scored and added an assist in the Bruins 4-1 win over the Kings on Thursday.

Marchand opened the scoring on a 2-on-1 break when he kept the puck and scored short side on a beauty wrist shot. He would later add an assist on Dominic Moore's third period goal. Marchand is up to 26 goals on the season and 61 points in 61 games. David Krejci and David Pastrnak scored the other goals.
Feb 24 - 3:03 AM

John-Michael Liles and Riley Nash will be scratched against the Kings on Thursday.

Through 30 games this season the veteran defender has posted just five helpers along with 21 hits and 37 blocks. He's also suited up just eight times since the calendar turned to 2017. Nash meanwhile has 10 points with 47 hits in 60 games thus far.

Joe Morrow has been sent to the AHL on a conditioning stint.

Boston hasn't used Morrow since Jan. 22, so it's not surprising to see him head to the minors for some work. He has an assist in 17 games with Boston this season.

Austin Czarnik (lower body) has been taken off the injured reserve and sent to the minors.

Czarnik has five goals and 13 points in 47 games with Boston in 2016-17. He also has a goal and three assists in seven AHL contests.

Austin Czarnik (lower body) is getting close to returning to the lineup.

He could be ready to play Sunday in Dallas. Cznarnik hasn't been in the fold since Feb. 4 because of a suspected leg injury.
Feb 23 - 8:42 AM

Ryan Spooner, who has been the subject of trade rumors, is hoping to stay with the Bruins.

"Yeah, I want to stay here," Spooner said. "I mean, I think I can help out. With the team we have here, I think we can make some noise. I'm really excited about these last couple of months." He has picked up one goal and two assists in five games since Claude Julien was replaced with Bruce Cassidy.
Feb 23 - 8:39 AM

Anton Khudobin will start Thursday's game against Los Angeles.

Tuukka Rask got the nod on Wednesday in a 5-3 loss to Anaheim. Khudobin made one of his better starts this season in a 4-3 win against Vancouver on Feb. 11. He has a 2-5-1 with a 3.05 goals-against average and an .888 save percentage in 2016-17.
Feb 23 - 8:35 AM

Brandon Carlo potted his fifth goal of the year on Wednesday night.

He opened the scoring early in the first period in a 5-3 loss to Anaheim. The Bruins have registered the first goal four times in five games since interim coach Bruce Cassidy took over. Carlo has produced 14 points in 60 games during his rookie campaign.
Feb 23 - 8:26 AM

David Backes earned a pair of assists in a 5-3 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday night.

He had the primary helpers on goal by defensemen Brandon Carlo and Zdeno Chara. Backes has collected five points in the last five games thanks to a couple of multi-point efforts. He has registered 28 points on the year.
Feb 23 - 8:22 AM

Tuukka Rask faced only 24 shots and let four get past him as the Bruins lost 5-3 to the Ducks.

The fifth goal was awarded to Andrew Cogliano when he was hooked while charging toward an empty net. This is the seventh time in his last nine outings that Rask has fallen below the .900 mark in terms of save percentages. In spite of his poor save percentage, he has a record of 6-2-0 in that span with one additional loss in which he was not the decision-maker. He seemed to find his composure with a shutout win over Montreal just before the bye-week and a win over San Jose with only one goal on 30 shots immediately afterward, but he cost fantasy players who tried to for a bandwagon based on those two results.
Feb 23 - 1:47 AM

Frank Vatrano briefly tied the game with a goal in the third, but the Bruins gave up two late in the period and lost 5-3 to the Ducks Wednesday night.

Vatrano has earned five of his season-total 14 points in the last four games. His best outing in this span came before the bye-week with a goal and two assists against Vancouver. He failed to score a point in the Bruins first game back from the enforced vacation, but found his rhythm Wednesday night.
