Ottawa Senators

David Krejci, Bruins make history with (another) late game-winning goal

David Krejci, Bruins make history with (another) late game-winning goal

The hottest team in the NHL also happens to have a flair for the dramatic.

The Boston Bruins extended their point streak to 19 games Saturday night by edging the Ottawa Senators 3-2 at TD Garden.

A win over the lowly Senators is nothing to write home about, but how they won certainly is: With 44.7 seconds remaining in regulation, David Krejci tipped in a Danton Heinen wrist shot to tally what proved to be the game-winning goal.

If you'll recall, the Bruins also scored in the final minute Thursday night (twice, in fact) to stun the Florida Panthers, meaning they've potted the game-winner with under 60 seconds to play in two straight games.

You guessed it: That's a franchise first.

Boston hasn't lost in regulation since Jan. 19, but it's not exactly blowing teams out of the water: Six of the Bruins' last eight games have been decided by a single goal.

Then again, the B's won all but one of those games, which is a testament to their resolve under pressure -- and their ability to keep one of the longest point streaks in NHL history alive.

NHL rumors: Here's what Senators want for Bruins trade target Mark Stone

NHL rumors: Here's what Senators want for Bruins trade target Mark Stone

The Ottawa Senators are running out of time to trade right winger Mark Stone before Monday afternoon's NHL trade deadline, and their high asking price could be the reason no deal has been made so far.

Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reported Saturday on the "Hockey Night In Canada" broadcast an update on Ottawa's demands for Stone, and how it's currently too high of a price for teams interested in the star forward.

“The market is drying up on Mark Stone for the Ottawa Senators, for no other reason than because their ask is so high,” Kypreos said.

“They’d love to mirror the pieces that they got with (Matt) Duchene. The difference is the prospects out of Columbus are regarded as maybe Bs and Cs, and what they’re looking for for Stone is grade-A -- guys that actually can step in and play right away. And right now, there doesn’t seem to be any teams biting, including the Winnipeg Jets.”

TSN's Bob McKenzie on Saturday listed the Bruins among the "serious suitors" for Stone

Stone is having an excellent season as a two-way forward for the Senators. He's tallied 62 points (28 goals, 34 assists) in 59 games with Ottawa in 2018-19. He is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and at 26 years old, he's primed for a massive contract that could pay him more than $10 million per season. 

Any team acquiring Stone would be wise to re-sign him given the fact he's in the prime of his career. 

The Bruins certainly could use a player like Stone for this season and beyond. He would add much-needed secondary scoring to Boston's lineup while also displaying the high defensive IQ that the B's coaching staff demands from its players.

The B's made a trade Thursday when they acquired Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle in exchange for young forward Ryan Donato and a draft pick. Boston still has enough ammo to make a serious attempt at a trade for Stone, but it looks like there is plenty of competition for the Senators forward.
