Clearly, the Bruins fell short in the offensive depth department during this springa€™s postseason run. Now it seems like theya€™re making significant plans to address that shortcoming.A 

According toA a report from TSNa€™s Darren Dreger, the B's are one of the interested suitors for the services of free agent winger Ilya Kovalchuk, who plans to jump back into the NHL next season after spending the last handful of years in his native Russia playing for the KHL. Boston is one of whata€™s believed to be close to a dozen teams vying for the 35-year-old Russian scorer, who cana€™t sign with an NHL team until the July 1 opening of free agency.A
