BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins have acquired forwards Maxime Talbot and Paul Carey from Colorado, a few hours after picking up forward Brett Connolly from Tampa Bay. The Bruins also got forward Zack Phillips from the Minnesota Wild for forward Jared Knight. Boston sent forward Jordan Caron and the Bruins' sixth-round pick next year to the Avalanche. The Lightning will get the Bruins' second-round picks this year and next.
 
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have placed the franchise tag on three-time Pro Bowl kicker Stephen Gostkowski.
