It was an ugly game for the Boston Bruins Sunday night as they took on the Washington Capitals. An 8-1 loss was all Bruins GM Don Sweeney needed to see to pull the trigger on a new blueliner.
Following the game the team announced they had acquired Defenseman Mike Reilly from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a 2022 third-round draft pick.

The 27 year old blueliner is an effective presence on the blueline in the middle of one of his most productive seasons offensively with 19 points, all assists in 40 games with the Ottawa Senators.
Mike Reilly, acquired by BOS, is a quite effective offensive defenceman who has had pretty remarkable underlying results since joining the Ottawa Senators. His transition skills are strong, awesome offence-driving and primary assist rates too. #LetsGoBruins pic.twitter.com/4K8TnOHBmX
