The Montreal Canadiens acquired defenseman Jeff Petry and forward Brian Flynn on Monday in separate trades.

Petry was traded by the Edmonton Oilers for a second-round and a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Flynn was traded by the Buffalo Sabres for a fifth-round pick in 2016.

Bergeron continues to strut Selke credentials

With three-quarters of the 2014-15 season complete, NHL.com looks at some of the biggest storylines and award contenders.

During his second shift against the Chicago Blackhawks on Feb. 22, Patrice Bergeron hopped over the boards and turned a normally routine play for his opponents into a goal for the Boston Bruins.

Each team was in the midst of changing its forwards. As Chicago forward Patrick Sharp left the puck for Brent Seabrook, Bergeron sped into the zone, first in on the forecheck. Seabrook was buying time, waiting for the Blackhawks to get a new forward unit on the ice, but Bergeron's efforts expedited the play. Seabrook was forced to fire a cross-ice pass to Michal Rozsival, who was quickly met by Bergeron. Rozsival was hurried into attempting a difficult outlet pass, Chicago turned over the puck, and the Bruins went the other way, with Bergeron ending the sequence by tipping home a pass from Reilly Smith.

These kinds of plays are routine for Bergeron, the best defensive forward in all of hockey, and the Selke Trophy favorite at the quarter pole of the 2014-15 season.

Analysis: Rangers not shy to pay price for success

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 10:40 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

The New York Rangers were close enough to a Stanley Cup championship last season to experience what it feels like to be at the pinnacle of the hockey world in mid-June.

It is a heady experience, no doubt; a validation of all the hard work a franchise puts into building a roster that can win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and instituting a system that allows that roster to function to the best of its ability.

Once experienced, the siren call to return for another round of June hockey is nearly impossible to ignore.

New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather couldn't.

Sunday afternoon, he pushed his trade chips all-in, sending a second-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft; a first-round pick in the 2016 draft; a top prospect, forward Anthony Duclair; and depth defenseman John Moore to the Arizona Coyotes for Keith Yandle, an offense-first defenseman who excels in power-play situations, and a mid-round pick.
