Seth Tierney got chills hearing Islanders fans at a jam-packed Nassau Coliseum chant, “New York Saints! New York Saints!”

The Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney took care of the easiest piece of business that they will attend to this offseason, removing the interim tag and naming Bruce Cassidy the 28th coach in the franchise’s history yesterday.
The question was simple and direct. So was the answer.
Bruce Cassidy was asked if he wanted the Bruins’ head coaching job on a more permanent basis than the interim tag he’s been wearing since Feb.
Everything is coming up roses for the Bruins.
Last night, the B’s played their worst game under interim coach Bruce Cassidy, but it just didn’t matter. For on this night, the hockey gods delivered the 29th-place Arizona Coyotes, who already began their annual fire sale in advance of today’s trade deadline.
