Ottawa Senators at Boston Bruins, February 28 – Fan Preview
The Boston Bruins made a couple of moves at the trade deadline in order to shore up their roster. They acquired Brian Rolston and Mike Mottau from the New York Islanders for a pair of prospects. Boston then traded Steve Kampfer to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Greg Zanon.
"To be able to go to a contender and have a chance at the Stanley Cup and repeating on a Stanley Cup team is quite a thrill," Mottau said. "I'll do whatever it takes to add value to the team and I think I'm more prepared to do it now-just kind of understanding roles and being part of a group that's been there before and hopefully I can fit in seamlessly."
The Bruins hope their improved roster will help them turn around their recent string of mediocre play. A win against the Ottawa Senators will definitely be a step in the right direction
