Bruins Cup Rewind: Peter Chiarelli Bolsters Team for Stanley Cup Run by Acquiring Tomas Kaberle, Rich Peverley, Chris Kelly


Editor's note: NESN is counting down the top 50 moments of the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup season. Every day from Aug. 17 to Oct. 5, a memorable moment from the 2011 season will air on NESN Daily and be posted on NESN.com.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli was quite busy during February, acquiring three players who would see big minutes for the team down the stretch and into the postseason.

Chiarelli first traded a second-round pick to the Ottawa Senators for Chris Kelly, which improved the team's depth at center. Then, on Feb. 18, Chiarelli pulled off two more trades, which included landing one of the trade deadline's big fish in defenseman Tomas Kaberle. The B's acquired Kaberle in exchange for a first-round pick, a second-round pick and Joe Colborne.

On the same day, the Bruins acquired Rich Peverley, along with Boris Valabik, for Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart.
