New faces might be able to help the Boston Bruins rebound from their worst loss of the season as they host the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

In the wake of an 8-1 domination from the Washington Capitals on Sunday, the Bruins made a pair of trades. One involved acquiring 2018 MVP winger Taylor Hall, as well as injured center Curtis Lazar (lower body), from the Sabres in exchange for winger Anders Bjork and a 2021 second-round pick. The other saw Boston add defenseman Mike Reilly from the Ottawa Senators for a 2022 third-round pick.

The Hall deal was made official prior to Monday's trade deadline, but whether he is ready to play against his now former team Tuesday remains to be seen. The 29-year-old has already expressed interest in remaining in Boston beyond the conclusion of the one-year, $8 million contract he signed with Buffalo last offseason.
