Tonight, the Bruins face the Islanders at 7 p.m. Boston is looking to bounce back after losing to the Devils on Sunday.

Also, the Patriots have reportedly traded with the Raiders to reacquire offensive tackle Trent Brown, who helped anchor the line for New England’s Super Bowl-winning team during the 2018 season.

Brown, 27, comes back to the Patriots along with a 2022 seventh-round pick in exchange for a 2022 fifth-round pick, according to the reported terms of the trade.

Trent Brown’s reaction to coming back to the Patriots: After news broke on Tuesday morning that Brown was heading back to the Patriots, he marked the moment with a few posts on social media.
