Bruins head coach Cassidy lands in COVID-19 protocol
Cassidy has mild symptoms, and assistant coach Joe Sacco will assume primary duties behind the bench, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said Tuesday, according to the Boston Globe's Matt Porter.
It hasn't been an ideal 24-hour period for the Bruins. Forward Jake DeBrusk's agent confirmed Monday his client is requesting a trade. He will remain with the team while the club and his representative try to arrange a deal.
Boston entered Tuesday's action sitting in fifth place in the Atlantic Division - albeit fourth in terms of point percentage - with a record of 11-7-0.
