Bruins bolster playoff push, acquire Taylor Hall from Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Forward Taylor Hall hopes a fresh start with the Boston Bruins can boost his confidence after three dreadful months with the Buffalo Sabres.

The opportunity to join a team making a late-season playoff push should help after the NHL's 2018 MVP was acquired by the Bruins on Monday.

"These last few days, you do some soul-searching, and you look back on what you can do better, and look forward to the future," Hall said during a video conference call from Buffalo before making the near nine-hour drive east to Boston. And he's expected to be in the Bruins lineup for their home game against the Sabres on Tuesday.
