What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:
- Patrice Bergeron was back on the ice for the Bruins today. Just some light skating, but at least it’s a step forward.
- The Blue Jackets have placed Rick Nash on IR. Earliest he is available to return is Friday.
- Dave Staples wonders what the Oilers will do with Erik Cole considering his pending free agency. If they do re-sign him, I don’t think it’ll happen before the season ends, but that’s just my opinion.
- Vincent Lecavalier rumors continue, with Montreal being mentioned as a possible destination. I think he gets moved but that is a lot of contract to take on.
- Capitals lines from practice today. Poti could be out longer than expected.
