A “fake” NHL trade rumor involving David Pastrnak and the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday was quickly dismissed.
Should the Colorado Avalanche have been called for a high stick and/or too many men on the ice before Nazem Kadri scored the overtime winner to give them a 3-1 lead in the series over the Tampa Bay Lightning?
That and more in your BHN Bruins Daily:
Apparently, we’d better be prepared for “fake” NHL trade rumors surrounding Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak. Though his agent showers water on the trade chatter surrounding his client, the summer slump has begun and he’s apparently heading to the New Jersey Devils for the runner-up overall pick. LOL!

COL: The Colorado Avalanche are one win away from their first Stanley Cup since 2001 and their third in franchise history thanks to an overtime goal by Nazem Kadri in Game 4. There were too many men on the ice when Kadri made it 3-2 -Victory sealed the Tampa Bay Lightning? Maybe, but I’ll reiterate what an NHL assistant coach told me after Jon Cooper cried a river all the way back to Denver.
An NHL assistant coach to me just on Jon Cooper’s postgame presser and the drama of too many men on the ice:
