Bruins shrug off disappointment, reset sights on Cup

Tuesday, 09.30.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

The question came from a perturbed fan in the stands at TD Garden for the Boston Bruins' annual State of the Bruins town hall meeting just before the start of training camp.

The fan alluded to the notion the Boston Celtics only hang banners for their world championships because that's their only goal, but the Bruins have banners commemorating their division and conference titles, in addition to their Stanley Cup championships, because they're not as committed to winning world titles.

It didn't take Bruins president Cam Neely a breath to grab the microphone and respond to the disgruntled customer by flatly denying the person's premise was accurate. After the event, Neely expanded on what the Bruins' biggest target is every season.

Bruins found winning ticket with Bergeron linemates

Tuesday, 09.30.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Entering his 11th NHL season, Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron has had dozens of linemates. He's worked well with some, better with others. One thing he's learned is that line chemistry is as easy to predict as the lottery.

But when the right numbers come up, the jackpot can be big.

The Bruins hit the lottery last season when the line of Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Reilly Smith combined for 75 goals and 91 assists, had the Corsi-for percentage of any line that played at least 300 minutes together at even strength according to Progressivehockey.com, and helped Boston win the Presidents' Trophy. Bergeron had his second 30-goal season and was second on the Bruins with 62 points; Marchand's 25 goals were the second-most he's had in a season; and Smith, in his first full NHL season, had 20 goals and 51 points.

Tuesday, 09.30.2014 / 12:04 AM / News

NHL.com

The New York Rangers' kids had their way with the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.

Rookies Jesper Fast and Ryan Haggerty each scored twice to lead the Rangers to a 6-3 victory against the Flyers at Madison Square Garden in the opener of a home-and-home series. Anthony Duclair, a 19-year-old forward, had his second goal in as many games and added an assist, and rookie forward Kevin Hayes had two assists.

The only goal scored by a player older than 22 was 28-year-old Chris Mueller's power-play goal in the second period.

Duclair, Haggerty and Fast scored in a span of less than four minutes to put the Rangers up 3-0 before the game was 10 minutes old, and the Flyers never got closer than two goals the rest of the way.

Blues' Schwartz moving forward with new contract

Monday, 09.29.2014 / 3:54 PM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- The last piece of the St. Louis Blues roster for the 2014-15 season stepped onto the Scottrade Center ice Monday. Now the Blues can focus on the task at hand, which is working toward winning a Stanley Cup.

Restricted free agent forward Jaden Schwartz agreed to terms Saturday on a two-year contract worth $4.7 million ($2.35 million average annual value).

Without Schwartz, who will get $2 million this season and $2.7 million in 2015-16, the Blues would have had a big void to fill after the 22-year-old had a breakout 2013-14 with 25 goals and 56 points.

Schwartz, who missed 10 days of training camp, said Monday he hopes to get caught up quickly.

Bruins sign Smith, Krug to one-year contracts

Monday, 09.29.2014 / 2:42 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- In the end, the Boston Bruins were able to keep the band together.

General manager Peter Chiarelli's goal during his negotiations with defenseman Torey Krug and forward Reilly Smith was to get the restricted free agents new contracts without being forced into a corresponding move that could weaken his team's talent or depth.

By getting Krug and Smith each to agree to a one-year, $1.4 million contract Monday, Chiarelli basically got that done. According to CapGeek.com the Bruins are about $3.6 million over the salary-cap ceiling based on their current roster, but they'll get relief of slightly more than $4 million when Marc Savard is placed on the long-term injured list. While they'll be under the $69 million salary cap by about $430,000, Chiarelli could look to make a move to get more cap room. That move won't have to be as significant, however, as if Smith and Krug pushed for more money in their new contracts.
