Report: Bruins Scouting Senators Forward Ryan Dzingel.

It's no secret, the Boston Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney are trying to boost their scoring punch. 

Aside from the first line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, the offense has been pretty flat. 

While there's been reports linking the Bruins to big time pieces like Wayne Simmonds, Artemi Panarin and Brayden Schenn, there's been some chatter that the team is hesitant to move a first round pick and more after last year's Rick Nash trade. 

Nash didn't really pan out for the Bruins so the team might be looking for cheaper options this deadline. 

According to NHL insider Darren Dreger, one of those option is Ottawa Senators forward Ryan Dzingel. 

"Boston is definitely thinking that they've got to add up front.....My understanding is Boston is going to heavily scout tonight's Senators-Pittsburgh game, so I wouldn't be surprised if they make a play on Ryan Dzingel."

Dzingel will be UFA after this season and currently has 20 goals and 18 assists so far this season in 48 games.
