Off the trail...

- Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy has won the 2019-20 Jack Adams Award. [Stanley Cup Of Chowder]

- Alex Killorn laid a pretty dirty hit on Brock Nelson last night, and it wouldn’t be shocking if he ends up being suspended for a game or two. [NBC Sports]

- What will the 2020-21 season look like? Bill Daly sheds some light on the situation. [The Athletic]

- Speaking of which, the Lightning now lead their series against the Islanders 2-0 thanks to some late-game heroics from Nikita Kucherov.
