The Rick Nash sweepstakes might be coming to a close soon, and the Boston Bruins are reportedly right in the middle of the frenzy. Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman tweeted Saturday night that the Bruins are in on the Rangers winger, adding that Boston 'appear(s) to be (the) leading contender' for the veteran. TSN's Darren Dreger also linked Boston to Nash just minutes prior to Friedman's tweet, noting that both the Bruins and Rangers are having 'ongoing discussions", but figuring out cap space will be a hurdle in a potential move. Nash, who will become an unrestricted free agent in this upcoming offseason, is a prime candidate to join New York's growing fire sale. Earlier this week, the Blueshirts dealt winger Michael Grabner to the New Jersey Devils for a second-round pick and a prospect.
