Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin. Or, to put it in terms more appropriate for this season, Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin and he’s actually a Bruin and the Penguins haven’t taken him away from the Bruins. 



The Bruins acquired Stars right wing Jaromir Jagr Tuesday for a draft pick and two minor prospects. The trade is the first Boston has made this season and it comes a day prior to Wednesday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline. The story was first reported by Czech reporter Roman Jedlicka.

The Bruins are getting some encouraging news on the injury front this week, as both Chris Kelly (leg) and Adam McQuaid (shoulder) skated Tuesday with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides. It was their second day on the ice, as the injured pair also skated Monday.

Bruins forward Kaspars Daugavins was expected to have his work visa issues squared away for Tuesday, but he was not on the ice for the team’s morning skate.

The Bruins claimed Daugavins from the Senators last Wednesday, but the Latvian-born player has been unable to get his work visa because the US Embassy was closed from Good Friday through Easter Monday. The B’s had aimed to have everything in order for Tuesday. Whether that will still happen remains unclear.

Two days until the trade deadline and the biggest names you’re hearing aren’t exactly the biggest names.



Anton Khudobin picked up his first shutout of the season and the Bruins got goals from David Krejci and Nathan Horton as they beat the Sabres, 2-0, Sunday night at First Niagara Center.

The win was Boston’s first in their last three games and gave them 48 points, which puts them one point behind the Canadiens for the Northeast Division lead. Both teams have played 34 games.

The Bruins claimed former Senators forward Kaspars Daugavins on waivers Wednesday, but the 24-year-old has been unable to join the team because he has not been able to get his work visa. The wait will last until Tuesday at the earliest, his agent told WEEI.com Saturday.

The US Embassy is closed on Good Friday and the Monday following Easter, so the Bruins are working to get everything squared away for Tuesday, according to agent Jay Grossman. The Bruins will play Daugavins’ former club Tuesday night when they host the Senators at TD Garden.

Forget the discussion of who’s to blame between Jarome Iginla, Jay Feaster and Peter Chiarelli. Who’s to blame for what’s actually happening on the ice?



After having the last two nights off, the Bruins still looked sleepy Saturday afternoon as they fell to the Flyers, 3-1, in Philadelphia.

The Islanders took the lead on a Mike Knuble power-play goal at 15:19 of the first period. Matt Read made it 2-0 in the second period on what was a rough shift for the B’s, and Boston failed to get on the board until Nathan Horton scored on a rebound five minutes into the third period. Ruslan Fedotenko put the game out of reach with an empty netter with 58.4 seconds remaining.

The Bruins returned defenseman Torey Krug to Providence Friday, two days after recalling the 21-year-old from their AHL affiliate.

Krug was recalled on Wednesday after the Bruins and Flames agreed to the since-derailed Jarome Iginla trade. Krug played Wednesday night against the Canadiens in place of Matt Bartkowski, who was scratched because of his inclusion in the trade. The Michigan State product picked up an assist in the loss to the Habs.
