Sunday Morning Skate: Must-wins on must-wins; Lightning land Savard
The Philadelphia Flyers went out and beat the Bruins in regulation on Saturday afternoon. They did what they needed to do and they have to follow that up with another win today against the Sabres.
We’re just a day away from the trade deadline. The Tampa Bay Lightning landed David Savard from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday for one of the biggest trades thus far. Chuck Fletcher has a few decisions to make before 3 p.m. ET on Monday.
