Bruins Still A Little Rusty In Loss To Canadiens

The Boston Bruins headed off to neutral territory tonight to take on their ancient rivals, the Montreal Canadiens. The Bruins put up some early heat, but the B’s fell back on familiar patterns. They gave up a power play goal that tied it up at the beginning of the third (just 18 seconds after the Bruins retook the lead). The Bruins The loss brings the Bruins to 2-2-1 on the preseason.

The Bruins and the Canadiens played at Quebec City’s Videotron Centre (The future home of the Quebec Nordiques. Hopefully, Gary Bettman will take a few minutes from the next disaster in the desert and remember that Canadians should have another team in the NHL).

O'GARA STILL STANDING LATE INTO FIRST B'S TRAINING CAMP

BRIGHTON, Mass. -- Robbie O’Gara has been largely flying under the radar during his first B’s training camp with fellow young D-men like Brandon Carlo and Jakub Zboril having garnered plenty of the attention paid toward young, hopeful defenseman prospects.

But don’t sleep on the former fifth round pick from the 2011 draft, who is still in NHL camp competing hard for a job after last weekend’s major cuts pared away more than 20 players to a much smaller group for the final 10 days of camp. Clearly it seems O’Gara is ticketed for Providence to start this season no matter how well things go for him over the final couple of games, but his presence is also a nod that the Bruins coaches like what they’ve seen out of the hard-working Yale Hockey alum.

Questions Facing the Boston Bruins

1) Who is going to step up and fill the defensive void?
Everyone knew the Bruins’ biggest issue heading into this season would be defense. The Bruins responded to that knowledge by...doing nothing, really. This past week’s signing of Christian Ehrhoff to a PTO could prove to be a shrewd step in the right direction, but the B’s didn’t make the defensive splash many fans were hoping for.

Instead, they’ll plug onward with what they have: Zdeno Chara (aging), Kevan Miller (used above where he should be), Adam McQuaid (oft-injured), Torey Krug (USA!) and then throw the rest in a blender: Ehrhoff (should he make it), Joe Morrow, Brandon Carlo, Colin Miller...the list goes on.

Spooner Auditions At Left Wing For Bruins…..And Ducks?

Tuesday’s 4-3 loss at the hands of the Montreal “Those We Do Not Speak Of’s,” featured a great start, a terrible finish, and another noteworthy performance from Austin Czarnik. Throughout the up and down affair, Claude Julien raised a few eyebrows by rolling out a second line comprised exclusively of natural centers. The experiment was made possible by Austin Czarnik’s strong play throughout the preseason, and paid immediate dividends. David Krejci, David Backes, and Ryan Spooner played well together all night long, with Spooner opening the scoring halfway through the first period.

With a logjam at center and Frank Vatrano shelved until Christmas, this appears to be a tidy solution to at least a couple questions. Spooner’s playmaking ability and speed have never been in doubt, especially on the power play. He HAS, however, struggled mightily in the face-off circle, and suffers from the occasional brain fart or missed assignment on defense. Playing Spooner on the wing with Krejci and Backes effectively hides Spooner’s shortcomings while highlighting his strengths.

Miller, McQuaid, Czarnik injured, Ehrhoff leaves Bruins camp

RIGHTON, Mass. – Adam McQuaid, Austin Czarnik and Kevan Miller look like they might all be on the sidelines for the Bruins to start the season this week.

McQuaid is day-to-day with an injury sustained in the middle of last week, Miller is being evaluated for an injury that happened in an overtime preseason Saturday win against the Flyers and Czarnik is out while going through the concussion protocol after sustaining a head shot from Flyers cheap shot D-man Radko Gudas last weekend.

Jacobs: "I expect them to get deep in the playoffs"

The Bruins had Media Day festivities Tuesday in anticipation of the 2016-17 season launch, and longtime owner Jeremy Jacobs said he is planning on additional games at the end of the campaign.

“I share the expectations with everybody here that we’ll be in the playoffs,” said Jacobs, on a dais alongside CEO Charlie Jacobs, president Cam Neely, general manager Don Sweeney, and head coach Claude Julien. “And I expect them to get deep in the playoffs. I think there’s a very good mix of young and old, experienced players. I’m looking forward to going into the playoff season.”

The Bruins are coming off missing the postseason for the second-straight year, with last season’s 93-point total falling just short of qualifying due to losing a tiebreaker with Detroit (greater number of wins, excluding shootout wins).

Pressed for a timeline for playoff success, Jacobs replied: “Yesterday.”

Boston Bruins: Patrice Bergeron Out for Season Opener

While the NHL season officially starts Wednesday, fans of the Boston Bruins will have to wait until Thursday to see their team take the ice for the first time. Unfortunately, that season opener won’t look exactly as most expected.

Bruins’ general manager Don Sweeney announced Wednesday that the team would be without Patrice Bergeron, Adam McQuaid, and Kevan Miller in their season opener. While the news on McQuaid and Miller was expected, Bergeron’s name comes as a surprise.

Marchand powers Bruins to opening win

COLUMBUS, Ohio — With the normal opening night excitement palpable, the Boston Bruins overcame two, two-goal deficits to top the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-3 at Nationwide Arena on Thursday night.

Brad Marchand was the Bruins catalyst, dishing out three helpers in the second period before scoring two goals in the third to seal the victory.

Offseason addition David Backes added two goals and an assist and David Pastrnak had two goals and two assists for the Bruins.
