Brassard: Rangers-Islanders rivalry fun for players

New York Rangers center Derick Brassard joined NHL Live to preview their Metropolitan Division showdown against the New York Islanders on Tuesday at Nassau Coliseum (7 p.m. ET; NHLN-US, TVA, SN1 ,SNO, MSG 2, MSG+).

The Rangers are 1-3-0 against the Islanders this season but won the last game 6-5 on Feb. 16 after overcoming three two-goal deficits.

"I think our rivalry against the Islanders is actually fun for the players and I think for the fans," Brassard said. "It's not a rivalry that's bloody and we're trying to kill each other out there. I think it's really good hockey. They have a good team and so do we. It's a lot of fun playing in those games.

"We were down 2-0 in the first period in the last game there and we found a way to come back and get a win. Since then we've been playing some really good hockey. I think [Tuesday] it's going be another great game against them. We know how important points are in the standings."

Flames will be as aggressive as they can: report

The Calgary Flames plan to be "as aggressive as we can" heading into the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET on March 2, general manager Brad Treliving told Sportsnet 690 Radio on Friday.

We hope; we expect and anticipate to get some business done. But again, I don't know. You need somebody to say yes on the other line too.

Blackhawks 'pretty close' to making trade: report

The Chicago Blackhawks are close to making a trade, but not necessarily to directly replace injured forward Patrick Kane, general manager Stan Bowman told CSN Chicago on Thursday.

"We're getting pretty close [to a trade], but until it's done, it's not done," Bowman said. "I wouldn't want to characterize anything until you get the word that, 'yes, we have a deal,' and we'll make the trade call.

"I've seen enough things that you think are going to happen that don't quite work out. So we're not there yet, but we've had a lot of good discussions today. Hopefully we'll get there."

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
