Boston Bruins Looking Good in PreseasonBy: Emily Greene - September 18, 2013
With the regular National Hockey League (NHL) season just around the corner (October 1, to be exact), hockey fans around the globe are watching preseason games to see the talent their favorite teams have. And by the looks of things, Boston Bruins fans have a lot to look forward to.
In their most recent game against the Washington Capitals, the Bruins came out the winner. Though it didn’t look that way during the first period and well into the second, the Bruins were trailing 2 – 0.
Then came Bruins left wing Justin Florek, scoring a goal in the last minute of the second period. With 7:53 left in the third period, Bruins center Chris Kelly scored, making it a tie game.
With a tied score at the end of regulation time, Bruins center Carter Camper scored the winning goal in overtime. The Bruins beat the Capitals 3 – 2. The Bruins are now 2 – 0 for the preseason. They previously beat the Montreal Canadiens 6 – 3.
Even though we’re only two game into the preseason, the Bruins have already made cuts from training camp.
So far, six players have been sent to the Providence Bruins training camp.
Bruins fans shouldn’t be too worried about having the “highest average ages” in the NHL. They have a young goalie who is quickly making a name for himself in the sport. Tuukka Rask, 26, who has been with the Bruins since 2007, is becoming one of the best goalies in the NHL.
The Bruins will next play the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. And if you want to go to the game, the Boston Bruins have a way to win two tickets via their Twitter account.
Below, you can watch some action from the two preseason games the Bruins have already played.
