National Hockey League trade deadline: Rangers' Rick Nash headed to Bruins in blockbuster deal

The New York Rangers have acquired Ryan Lindgren from the Boston Bruins as part of a trade involving Rick Nash. Boston gave up three players, including forward Ryan Spooner and prospect defenseman Ryan Lindgren, and two draft picks, including its first-round selection this year.

"Our players have made a push and I wanted to inch that along if we could, and reward it in a way", Sweeney said.

Patrice Bergeron refused to use the road trip or the trade as reasons for the Bruins losing consecutive games for the first time since going 0-1-1 on December 14-16.

They were better than the retooled Bruins by beating them 4-1 to spoil forward Rick Nash's Boston debut.

Nash has 15 goals in 77 career playoff games, and many blame him for the Rangers coming up short in 2014 because he scored just three goals.

The game was Nash's first in almost a week after the Rangers had him sit out their previous two games to avoid the possibility of him getting injured. But the deal leaves me wanting and expecting much more, even with the inclusion of the first rounder, based on NY having dead cap space for the future. He'll be a restricted free agent due for a raise from his $2.825 million cap hit this summer, but the Rangers should have the flexibility to re-sign or trade him depending on what they want to do.

The Bruins topped his list, though Nash acknowledged he was ready to go nearly anywhere.

More people need anti-depressants, study finds
Researchers, though, are still working to definitively establish that antidepressants are more effective than placebo . However, she said: "This does not necessarily mean that antidepressants should always be the first line of treatment".

That's not to say that the old guard of the Black and Guard are set to drop off a cliff in terms of play next season, but there's no sense in stunting a chance to win to win now when you have nearly all of the pieces in place. "I think Boston fits both those perfectly".

Boston wasn't done adding to its roster by signing Brian Gionta to a one-year $700,000 contract. The NHL trade deadline arrives Monday afternoon at 3 pm.

If Don Sweeney was exhausted by yesterday afternoon following late-night and early-morning negotiations with the New York Rangers, he didn't show it. There should be at least one or two more blockbusters but expect teams to try hard to find role players as well.

NY also took back Beleskey as a bonus of sorts.

Gionta has 289 goals and 588 points in 1,006 National Hockey League regular-season games over 16 seasons.

Nash came to NY as part of a blockbuster deal with the Blue Jackets in the summer of 2012, sending away Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a first-round pick in 2013. Once a Ranger, always a Ranger. Kane has 20 goals and 40 points in 61 games. Gionta is from nearby Rochester, New York, and has a home in Buffalo. "It was my first game in a week so I was a bit nervous", Nash said. 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.
