Rick Nash of the New York Rangers celebrates a shootout goal
The Boston Bruins continued solidifying their playoff push by acquiring six-time All-Star forward Rick Nash in a multiplayer trade with the Rangers that leaves NY retooling for the long-term future.
And with Nash off the market, the focus of trade attention also turns to whether Sabres forward Evander Kane and Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson will also be dealt by Monday afternoon.
Beleskey has a high cap hit for a player of his caliber and his contract ends after the 2019 season.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Kyle Okposo and the Eastern Conference's last-place Buffalo Sabres head into the uncertainty of the NHL's trade deadline sure of one thing. Oh, and did we mention that Rick Nash will possibly play tonight? Although Nash had the benefit of those with NY, he hasn't played with a center the caliber of Krejci (sorry Mike Zibanejad) with the Rangers for a while. The Bruins gave up Ryan Spooner, Ryan Lindgren, Matt Beleskey, a 2018 1st round pick, and a 2019 7th round pick. Lindgren was Boston's second-round pick, 49th overall, in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Wouldn't surprise me if he uses his time in Boston as an audition for his next deal. The 5-10, 184-pound forward has appeared in 253 career National Hockey League games, all with Boston, recording 142 points (41 goals, 101 assists). Buffalo had not defeated Boston at home since a 5-4 overtime win February 26, 2014. Lindgren was selected by Boston in the second round of the 2016 draft and now is playing his sophomore season at Minnesota. He finished with five shots, which didn't include a hard snapshot from the right circle which he banked off the far post on a 3-on-2 rush midway through the second period. The flip side is Nash's uneven production, especially in the playoffs, so getting the first and additional pieces might have been the best offer out there.
Boston got their rental in Nash to start making their push towards the playoffs to be the team that comes out of the Tampa Bay-Toronto-Boston Atlantic Division triangle. "It's definitely been a couple of odd days not being able to play". The Bruins are fortunate enough to have a surplus of young defensemen on the roster - and several more prospects waiting in the wings - giving Sweeney some wiggle room in moving another defensive prospect.

And the cap space gained by moving beleaguered bust Matt Beleskey, even with the Bruins retaining 50 percent of his salary, is just plain very big. That became clear with the recent ice-time Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy doled out to the mercurial forward, and was hammered home by last night's meager 11:17 of time on ice in a 4-3 loss, which was his second-lowest total since returning to the Boston lineup in December.
