The Bruins didn’t set off any fireworks yesterday on trade-deadline day.
They swung just one minor-league deal and will now go through the final 20 games of the regular season, plus playoffs, with the team that carries a five-game winning streak into tonight’s game at Ottawa.
In case you’re disappointed with the way things went for Boston yesterday, here’s something to cheer you up: it’s Nathan Horton’s knockout of Edmonton’s Theo Peckham from Sunday night:
Now it’s worth showing some sympathy for Peckham, who left the game and didn’t even skate on Monday. Hopefully, he’ll come around. But Horton’s rage was sparked by Peckham’s decision to hit David Krejci up high, and now we know what happens when you mess with Horton’s center.
