But that is a difficult task when you are named the NHL's first star of the week.

Bergeron notched four goals and five assists - including his fourth career hat trick in the home opener - in three games from Oct. 8-14, to lead the league in scoring with nine points and pace the Black & Gold to three victories.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Jake DeBrusk knows it's early, but that doesn't mean he's satisfied.

The second-year winger has been held scoreless through the Bruins' first three games, while linemates David Krejci (one assist) and Ryan Donato (one power-play goal) have combined for just two points. It's a trend they're hoping to change on Thursday night against the Edmonton Oilers at TD Garden.

Nordstrom Expected to Bring Versatility to B's Lineup

First-year Bruin boasts hockey sense, speed

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BEIJING - Bruce Cassidy knew he could depend on his bottom six a season ago. His ability to roll four lines against any opponent in any situation was crucial in the Bruins' charge towards the top of the Eastern Conference.

Cassidy would love nothing more than to continue that approach this season. But with Riley Nash and Tim Schaller departing via free agency over the summer, there are holes to fill and there is trust to be earned.

Joakim Nordstrom is keen on doing just that.

NHL China Games.

A native of British Columbia, Dun is of Chinese descent and last season played for Beijing-based HC Kunlun Red Star of the KHL - a team owned by O.R.G. Packaging Chairman Zhou Yunjie.
