Bruins acquire Nash, who could be in lineup in Buffalo today

The Bruins have acquired Rick Nash from the New York Rangers, the Rangers have announced on their Twitter account Sunday morning.

In Nash, the Bruins are getting player who, despite regressing in recent seasons, has a history of being one of the NHL's elite goal scorers.

Spooner is a 26-year-old forward who has put up nine goals and 16 assists while playing 39 games for the Bruins this season and has 253 games of National Hockey League experience over parts of six seasons.

Nash had been expected to be dealt by Monday's trade deadline.

This was his sixth season on Broadway, and he amassed 145 goals in 375 regular-season games. He could skate on a second line with David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk, and provide a bit of a different element than the other forwards in their top six. It's just the things that happen when your team doesn't win and they have to make business decisions. 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 real score for the Rangers is Lindgren, a solid if unspectacular prospect on the blue line, and the Bruins' first-round pick. But he still has some attractive trade pieces left, including captain Ryan McDonagh and winger Mats Zuccarello, both of whom have one more year left on the deals and might bring a better return at June's draft. Lindgren is a sophomore at University of Minnesota and played for Team USA at the 2018 World Junior Championships in December. That's something Bruins fans should be ecstatic about once the shock of a big time rental move engineered by Don Sweeney is digested and broken down beyond this weekend.

The message from the Bruins is clear here: The Black and Gold are going for it this season and they didn't have to give up any of their untouchable pieces in order to do just that.
