Media Day activities are winding down. We will be posting plenty of material as the day carries on, so keep it here at

10:16 a.m.
That would've hurt. A puck just landed five rows in front of me -- I had my head down typing.

I think my luck is improving...

9:53 a.m.
There's lots of chatter from Claude Julien and the players this morning -- this creates a different feel at practice, which seemed to be more subdued during the preseason.

9:51 a.m.
Jeremy Jacobs, Charlie Jacobs, Peter Chiarelli and Cam Neely are all in attendance at today's practice on Garden ice. All of those men will address the Press this morning, as well.

9:48 a.m.
It's very encouraging to see Marco Sturm, David Krejci, Matt Hunwick, Andrew Ference and Steve Begin on the ice to start the year. Obviously, the physical issues that plagued those players over the summer and during camp are close to being resolved or else the Bruins would not have sent Zach Hamill and Brad Marchand -- both of whom had excellent camps -- down I-95 to Providence.

9:33 p.m.

The Boston Bruins are in the midst of beginning the practice portion of the 2009-10 season with a pre-press conference skate at the TD Garden. Today is media day and all of the Bruins will be available to the press shortly after skate.

Shawn Thornton was one of the first men on the ice and after he put a put into the net on his first backhand shot he gave a short mock celebration.

For the most part, this club is very familiar to Boston Bruins fans, what with Steve Begin and Derek Morris being the only players who were not wearing Black & Gold in some capacity last year.
