    Young Bruins mauled Coyotes and hungry for more roadkill

    The brown bears of Boston are coming off of a 6-2 victory in Arizona last night, competing without injured two-way talents Patrice Bergeron and David Backes. Yet stars Brad Marchand and David Krejci lead the team in scoring this season and will be the veteran presence on their young scoring lines. Coach Bruce Cassidy was an assistant coach until Julien got fired and officially got the permanent job at the end of last season. He led an IHL team to two titles before coaching the Washington Capitals for a season, then led the Bruins farm club to a title. Cassidy's mantra: "add defense to scoring and build confidence." A trio of 2014 draftees were at right wing and performed well Saturday, with a combined 5 points that game: David Pastrnak (1 G, 1A), Anders Bjork (1G, 1st line minutes) and Danton Heinen (2 A). The most impressive youngster is 2015 1st round pick left winger Jake Debrusk with 4 points in 4 games, 10 shots and tons of praise on the Bruins' HfBoard, with forward Ryan Spooner in the doghouse and talk that Sunday's game - if he even is dressed - may be make it or break it for his season. The backup netminder Anton Khudobin played last night, so... talented but struggling Tuukka Rask (1-2 record with .870 save % and 3.75 g.a.a.) is expected to start in Vegas this afternoon. On the blueline, Zdeno Chara played less minutes yesterday but was praised for his excellent performance, he being one of four Bruins sharing 20 minutes of ice time each last game, the others being 20-year-old Charlie McAvoy, 21-year-old Brandon Carlo and 30-year-old Kevan Miller. Offensive dman 26-year-old Torey Krug saw his minutes limited last night and the word is he performed better for it.


    Can ex-Bruin Malcolm Subban be a Golden Knight?

    Note: Lines are NOT official.​

    Tuch is a RW while Leipsic played LW before,
    so below assumes Leipsic moves to the left side to accommodate Tuch.​

    Shipachyov played LW a lot in Russia,
    so the natural center could be simply slotted into Marchessault's position.

    Not happy with the start time to this game. I am forced to sell my tickets due to work.

    Two teams united with their city over similar events. Boston will probably have a moment of silence at their first Knights home game (a couple of weeks from now).

    Hope Subban got enough training time with Dave Prior. Kid's got the tools, just needs to arrange them properly.

    Also sad about Flower, Marchy & Haula. Rough luck having them all on IR. Hoping Shippy can do what he does to elevate the team.

    Thanks for the GDT, BB! :thumbu:

    Onward Knights!

    Gotta think this is a tough one for the guys with recent happenings.

    Looking forward to seeing what Shippy brings though.

    Excited for this game. Will be broadcast nationally here in Canada and it's primetime (if you live in EST). Looking forward to seeing Shipachyov and what he can do. Hopefully Subban as well.

    Good luck guys.

    First time to the Veagas boards, and hope nothing but great things for this franchise. Hopefully I will be down there soon to see the team in person.

    I see our old prospect is getting the start in net. It was bad to lose him for nothing but at least he is in the West if he becomes a great goalie.

    Thanks for the thread.

    Sundays are always rough for me to be here, but I had to check in to see what was happening. Wow, quite the surprise.

    I'll still be there, still be loud, still expect to win.

    Who knows, maybe they'll surprise us this time like they did in Dallas. Glad Tuch is up, he's my favorite.

    Me too. Will be in attendance as well. Should be a real interesting watch between him, Ship, and Subban.

    This one's gonna be ugly. But that's cool, gonna hope Sub starts to figure things out. Playing his former team might help him focus in, we'll see.

    Yeah, I don't know if I like using two tragedies as a narrative for a hockey game.

    Fleury is a big loss but I still believe Knight are not going to fold - by no mean these are free 2 points for any team

    3 wins in 4 games is pretty impressive and hope you guys can make it 4 in 5 games

    Win or lose, I just hope it's a fun game to watch.

    Hopefully Ship plays well.

    Should be a tough game with Fluery, hopefully we can pull off a major upset.
