PITTSBURGH – Trevor Daley’s adjustment to the Pittsburgh Penguins was a lot quicker than with the Blackhawks.
The Ducks are 4-0-1 in their last five games, vaulting themselves into a playoff spot — third place in the Pacific Division — for the first time this season.
The Panthers have won their last six games, leapfrogging Montreal, Boston and Detroit in a span of a week to the top of the Atlantic Division.
The Bruins have earned at least a point in 14 of their last 15 games, and are now one point behind Montreal for the Atlantic Division lead with two games in hand.
Rob Scuderi didn’t foresee getting traded when it happened late Monday night but he’s all right with the result.
