Ty Rattie is back in the St. Louis Blues organization. As you’ll recall, the Blues waived Rattie in January. He was claimed by the Carolina Hurricanes, had two assists in five games with that club and was then put back on waivers Saturday. According to reports on Sunday, the Blues re-claimed Rattie, the 24-year-old forward with 10 points in 35 career NHL games. He’s originally a second-round pick of St. Louis from the 2011 draft. The Blues sit third in the Central Division, eight points behind Chicago and five points ahead of Nashville. They host the Florida Panthers on Monday.
The Boston Bruins are back from their bye week, looking to continue a three-game winning streak since Bruce Cassidy took over as head coach from Claude Julien. The Bruins can extend their streak Sunday, when they visit the San Jose Sharks (8:30 p.m. ET). You can check out the game on NBCSN or online with NBC Sports’ Live Extra. Here are some links to check out for tonight’s game:
Sunday is Hockey Day in America and it features a quadruple header of games on the NBC networks. The Capitals, coming off of a 3-2 shootout loss in Detroit on Saturday afternoon, have earned at least a point in 21 of their past 23 games (19-2-2) to put themselves in a great position to win the Presidents’ Trophy for a second consecutive year. Saturday’s game was their first game back from their bye week and snapped what had been a six-game winning streak where they scored at least five goals in five of the games. On Sunday they visit a Rangers team that has won six of its past seven games but can not seem to gain any ground in a division where everybody seems to keep winning and collecting points.
