Bruins Prospects Defeat Penguins Prospects In Game One

The Boston Bruins Prospects Challenge in Buffalo New York kicked off yesterday afternoon. The Bruins prospects took on the prospects of the defending Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburg Penguins.

The game was live streamed by the Penguins on NHL.com.

The Bruins got off to a slow start allowing two goals in the first period. The team did not look good, the chemistry seemed off.When they came out for the second the B’s looked like a completely different team. The passes were crisp along with the breakouts.

Boston then went on the power play and Jack Studnika scored to bring the game back to one goal, the assists were from Matt Grzelcyk and Jeremy Lauzon. The second period ended with the B’ still down by one. Boston had taken control of the game as they out shot the Pens 11-4 in the second.

Just one minute into the third Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson tied the game at two. The third ended at two-two so they headed to overtime.

Jesse Gabrielle netted the overtime winner for the Bruins. Here is Gabrielle on what went down.

Both Gabrielle and Lauzon were the standouts of this game. It is still too early to say, keep an eye on those two to get a shot at the big club.

“Yeah I went D zone, offensive zone, missed it, had to get back, and then I had another chance there, and we were both pretty [tired],” smiled Gabrielle. “So I was glad we got to finish the game there.”

Then here is Leech on the team’s performance yesterday afternoon:

“So hopefully they understood that we’re more of a straight line team, a team that wants to get pucks to the net,” said Leach. “And I think you saw that in the second and third. It was a night and day difference.”

The next game is tonight at 7 PM, a link to the live stream will be tweeted by the @NHLBruins.

Here was the starting line up for the Bruins:

Danton Heinen – Jack Studnicka – Zach Senyshyn

Boston Bruins Already Having Injury Problem

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:
