Boston Bruins Ownership Is Glad to Have Fired Claude Julien

In the NHL recently, the Boston Bruins fired head coach Claude Julien. The owner of the Bruins  Jeremy Jacobs had to make the tough decision, but in the end he knew it was best for the team.

Jacobs stated in an interview with ESPN that, “The decision was made here in Boston. We though firing him right now was a little late, but it was the best move for the team.”

The Bruins were struggling under coach Claude, so the change was made for Bruce Cassidy to take over as the new head coach for the rest of the season. The GM of the Bruins, Don Sweeney made the hire for Bruce Cassidy after they let go of Julien Claude.

They even took away the interim aspect of the coaching job from Cassidy, so now he is officially the new head coach. The Bruins were 26-23-6 when they hired Cassidy, then went 18-8-1 when Cassidy was able to take full control.

The Boston Bruins had not made the Stanley Cup for three seasons. This was best for the team as they were struggling to become good for a while. When Cassidy took over; they were able to improve by a big margin.

Jacobs went onto say to ESPN that, “It was a successful season with the change we made.” Hopefully the Bruins can stay on track for the next few years to come as they made the moves necessary to become a contender in the NHL.

Bruins Injury Updates Have Begun

Today GM Don Sweeney has given an update on a few injured players.

Matt Beleskey who which is not a big deal since he might not even make the team is day-to-day with a foot contusion. This happened is the B’s last preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens

Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson is day-to-day as well with an upper-body injury that he received in the game against Detroit on September 19th. Hopefully, this is nothing because he was a kid that was slotted to make a roster spot.

Last is Torrey Krug who will be out for at least three weeks pending a re-evaluation at that time. He was hit in the jaw with the puck and suffered a non-displaced fracture. It occurred in the game against Detroit.

Also on another note, the team has sent Jack Studnicka and Kyle Keyser back to the OHL.

The biggest injury is with JFK, now some may say Krug but I think the B’s can find a replacement for him. McAvoy will most likely take over on the power play and maybe this opens the door for a guy like Rob O’Gara or Matt Grzelcyk. Other than these few hiccups Boston should be a fun team to watch this season. Especially if they stay as young as they have in camp and the preseason games.

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:
