Jaroslav Spacek Has Interest in the Boston Bruins

Jaroslav Spacek, currently a defenceman playing for the Carolina Hurricanes, could find himself in the black and gold of the Boston Bruins next season. According to Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, the Bruins took a strong run at acquiring the 38-year-old from the Hurricanes prior to the NHL’s trade deadline, but Carolina’s asking price was too high.

Montreal’s offence was missing in action for the third period, and their defence, hobbled by injuries to Jaroslav Spacek and Andreas Enqvist, wasn’t all that much better. Buffalo went on to win in a shootout, which left Carey Price without a save in shootouts thus far in...
