Bruins acquire Nash in trade with Rangers, sign Gionta

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) As well as the Boston Bruins have been playing, general manager Don Sweeney wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to make them better. And bigger.

Sweeney continued solidifying a playoff push Sunday by acquiring forward Rick Nash in a multiplayer trade with the Rangers that leaves New York retooling for the long-term future. The Rangers acquired the Bruins' first-round pick in this year's draft as well as forwards Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey, prospect defenseman Ryan Lindgren and a seventh-round pick in the 2019 draft in a deal reached a day before the NHL's trade deadline.

"Our players have made a push and I wanted to inch that along if we could, and reward it in a way," Sweeney said.
