Gagne willing to do 'whatever it takes' to help Bruins

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Simon Gagne knows all about comebacks.

Four years ago the forward earned his spot on the Boston Bruins short list of villains when he scored the goal that capped one of the greatest comebacks in Stanley Cup Playoffs history for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Now he's ready to take the next step in his comeback after a season out of the NHL, and the Bruins are hoping he can spark their comeback after a 1-3-0 start to the regular season.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli signed Gagne to a one-year contract worth a cap charge of $600,000 on Tuesday. Gagne is expected to make his Bruins debut Wednesday on the road against the Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

Now Gagne just has to find his role.

"I don't know. Like my conversation with Peter was whatever it takes. I'll be whatever," Gagne said after the Bruins practiced at Ristuccia Arena on Tuesday. "If I have to be the extra guy, if I have to be on the fourth line or a guy that will replace some guys when things are not going well, or injuries, playing the PK, power play, whatever it takes. I'm here to help the team win and I'm really happy that I have a chance to get back into the League with a good team. So I'm open to everything."

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
