But they're also trying to keep things in perspective.

Boston received mixed news on the injury front on Saturday

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The Bruins received some mix news on the injury front on Saturday morning as they returned to the ice for practice at Warrior Ice Arena.

While the concern was real after Brandon Carlo exited Thursday's win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden with a lower-body injury following a shot block in the second period, the blue liner was back on the ice as a full participant for Saturday's skate.

"We expect him to be available [for Sunday night's game against the San Jose Sharks]. We'll see how he feels after today's skate," said coach Jim Montgomery.

Zacha Reflects on Memorable Weekend

Bruins forward potted two goals vs. Flyers just two days after signing extension

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Pavel Zacha had a weekend to remember.

On Saturday evening, following the Bruins' thrilling win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston announced that it had signed the 25-year-old to a four-year contract extension. Roughly 36 hours later, Zacha tied a career high with three points, while tallying his first two-goal game with the Black & Gold, in a 6-0 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Not a bad stretch for the former first-round pick.

Bruins Quickly Shifting Focus to Saturday Showdown Against Leafs

Boston ready to turn the page from first regulation home loss of season

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - The Bruins have made it one of their missions this season to avoid consecutive losses. So far, so good as Boston has rebounded following each of their eight defeats through 41 games.

But on Saturday night, the Black & Gold - who suffered their first home regulation loss of the season on Thursday vs. Seattle - will have, perhaps, their toughest test yet in that regard as the division rival Toronto Maple Leafs visit TD Garden for the first time this season.

A further update on the winger is expected on Thursday

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Jake DeBrusk did not travel with the Bruins to California and will not be available for Boston's three-game swing through the Golden State. The winger was injured in the B's 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Monday's Winter Classic at Fenway Park, during which he potted both of the club's third-period goals.

"Jake's not on the trip. We'll have a more detailed update [on Thursday]," coach Jim Montgomery said following Wednesday's practice at the Kings' training facility.

Montgomery, whose club is set to take on Los Angeles in the road trip opener on Thursday night, said that no decision has been made yet on if a player will be recalled from Providence.

"Once we know more about JD, we'll know more about the call-up," he said.

Bruins Gear Up for 2023 Winter Classic at Fenway Park

Boston hits the ice for practice, gets set to embrace the moment

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Jim Montgomery tried to put it all into perspective.

As a kid growing up in Montreal, the Boston bench boss was a fan of the Expos, but his favorite American League team was the Red Sox. Back then, standing in the middle of the field at Fenway Park would have been a dream come true.

So, when Montgomery was doing that very thing on Sunday afternoon, he couldn't help but think of all the people who have had similar visions.

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - While the excitement is building for Monday's Winter Classic at Fenway Park, the Bruins still have another game to play before then as they welcome the Buffalo Sabres to TD Garden for a New Year's Eve matinée.

As such, the Black & Gold are aiming to keep the focus on Saturday's contest and stay undefeated in regulation on home ice (18-0-2).

"It's a big game. Buffalo played us really tight and hard last time we played there in Buffalo," Trent Frederic said of Boston's 3-1 victory over the Sabres on Nov. 12. "I think everyone's got their families in town and stuff like that. To make everything better on the weekend, we obviously want to win both those games."

Here's everything else you need to know ahead of the 1 p.m. ET puck drop on NESN and 98.5 The Sports Hub:

Ullmark pays tribute to Moog, Dafoe with goalie pads, helmet for outdoor game

by Eric Russo @erusso22 /

BOSTON - Linus Ullmark was born in 1993 and grew up in Northern Sweden.

As such, he did not have regular access to Bruins games on television.

But he remembers, nonetheless, flipping through hockey magazines and his hockey card collection and seeing former Black & Gold backstops Andy Moog and Byron Dafoe among some of the game's great goaltenders of that era like Dominik Hasek and Patrick Roy.
