Matt Beleskey a healthy scratch tonight vs. San Jose

The Bruins are ready to give it their best crack coming out of the NHL’s five day bye despite some evidence that it’s not going to be easy on Sunday night.

Teams in their first game back from the five day vacation were sporting a 3-10-3 record entering Sunday’s action, and the coast-to-coast flight from Boston to San Jose for a date with the Sharks wasn’t likely to do them any favors. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy didn’t make any mystery of his Sunday night lineup against the Sharks, and will scratch hard-nosed left winger Matt Beleskey along with Joe Morrow and John-Michael Liles. Beleskey was healthy scratched from last weekend’s win against Vancouver as well, and had no points along with a minus-1 rating in the two games he played under Cassidy ahead of the five day break.

Here are the projected line combos and D-pairings vs. the Sharks on Sunday night according to the Boston Bruins twitter feed:  

 

Marchand-Bergeron-Backes

Cehlarik-Krejci-Pastrnak

Vatrano-Spooner-Hayes

Schaller-Moore-Nash

 

Chara-Carlo

Report: Kings have 'assured' Cousins that he won't be traded

With the NBA trade deadline rapidly approaching rumors will be swirling in every direction. 

One name that everyone is keeping an eye on is Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. But will he be on the move?

According to Cousins' agent, the Kings have assured the All-Star that he is not being traded.

The statement from Cousins' agent came less than an hour after Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Kings have recently had trade discussions involving the 26-year-old

In January CSN California reported that, barring a late change in direction by either side, DeMarcus Cousins intends to sign a $207 million extension this offseason that will keep the big man in a Kings uniform long-term.
