Cassidy pleased with Vaakanainen's play SundayFebruary 23, 2021 | 03:20 AM

Boston coach Bruce Cassidy was pleased with the play of rookie defenseman Urho Vaakanainen Sunday. Analysis: It was the first game of the season for the rookie defenseman who had played in only seven games before this year. "I thought he got better as the game went on. He's a good hockey player. We know that," Cassidy said of the left-shot defenseman, who made his season debut. "... Good for (Vaakanainen). We'll see where we are when we get home health-wise, but all three of our lefty (defenseman) are out ... Good for the guys for stepping up, good team win."
