BOSTON -- After Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask signed an eight-year, $56 million contract prior to the 2013-14 season, he said numerous times that he wanted to earn every penny of his new deal. He delivered on that promise in Year 1 and helped the Bruins to the Presidents’ Trophy as the league’s best regular-season team, and in the process won his first Vezina Trophy. But as a team, the Bruins came up excruciatingly short of their potential and lost to the Montreal Canadiens in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Patriots’ offensive line is not playing at the level expected of it, but some help could come from rookie center Bryan Stork. Head coach Bill Belichick said Stork has improved a lot after missing a significant portion of training camp, a setback that greatly affects the progression of a rookie’s transition from college to the NFL. “I think Bryan has definitely gotten better, he has improved,” Belichick said during Tuesday’s conference call.
BOSTON -- Just four months after the Canadiens defeated the Bruins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the two teams will face off in an exhibition game Tuesday night at Bell Centre in Montreal. While it's only a preseason game, the atmosphere at Bell Centre should be exciting. “It doesn’t matter if it’s the first preseason game or game No. 50; it’s the same thing,” said Bruins forward David Krejci. “It’s going to be nice to get the first real preseason game under our belt and looking forward to it,” Krejci said.

WILMINGTON — Last season against 28 NHL teams, the Bruins widely were regarded as the finest team in the league.They were strong and confident on their way to a 117-point regular season, but they just couldn’t seem to figure out the Montreal Canadiens. The rivals met 11 times, including their postseason series, and in the majority of them, the B’s looked like a different team while the Habs appeared even better than their record suggested.

Assuming all goes well for the Bruins through camp, and no surprise injuries crop up in the next two weeks, heres how the defensive pairings should look come the start of the NHL season.
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Brad Marchand has always been the player you want on your team but hate to play against. His Boston Bruins teammates are experiencing the latter during training camp, which is a good sign. During practices he’s been chirping, jabbing guys with his stick after whistles, and playing his role as the little ball of hate. When the Bruins held their Black and Gold scrimmage Sunday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Bruins No. 1 pick David Pastrnak did not practice Monday and remains listed as day-to-day with a shoulder injury. The 18-year-old forward fell awkwardly into the boards after he collided with defenseman Matt Bartkowski during Saturday’s practice. Pastrnak did not play in the Black and Gold scrimmage on Sunday. “It’s not a dislocated shoulder. It’s some sort of a bruised shoulder, so we’ve got to wait and see how it heals,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien.

PROVIDENCE — The Bruins’ annual Black and Gold scrimmage does not exactly represent the highest caliber of hockey — although a sellout crowd of 11,909 at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center last night certainly seemed to enjoy the proceedings, a 6-1 victory by the Doug Houda-coached Team Black that featured a pair of goals by rookie winger Tyler Randell.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg played his first game in nearly nine months on Sunday as part of the Black and Gold scrimmage at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Seidenberg tore both the MCL and ACL in his right knee on Dec. 27 and had season-ending surgery on Jan. 7. Had the Bruins advanced to the Eastern Conference finals last spring, Seidenberg would have been ready to return, but the Montreal Canadiens defeated Boston in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- While forward Reilly Smith remains unsigned, the Boston Bruins have a “Help Wanted” sign for the right-wing position on the team’s second line. At some point, Smith will sign but after the team’s Black and Gold scrimmage Sunday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli had no update on negotiations with Smith or fellow entry-level free agent defenseman Torey Krug.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Since he’s still rehabbing from offseason wrist surgery, Bruins forward Milan Lucic did not play in the team’s black-and-gold scrimmage Sunday at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Lucic participated in the first two on-ice sessions of training camp and showed no ill effects from the procedure he had on his left wrist last May. “It’s been good. It’s been better than what I expected, which is obviously a good thing,” Lucic said.
