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.

Dun Embraces Opportunity of a Lifetime

He's serving as Bruins' third goalie for Beijing leg of NHL China Games

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BEIJING - Derek Dun, admittedly, did not take the most conventional path to the National Hockey League. And while his time at hockey's highest level may be short-lived, the 24-year-old is making sure to embrace his experience this week as the Bruins' third goaltender here at the O.R.G. 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.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TAMPA - The Bruins, down 3-1 in their second-round tilt with the Lightning, received some more bad news on Saturday afternoon.

Cassidy: 'We'll probably tinker' with Game 4 Lineup

Changes could be coming after back-to-back losses

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - It appears that the Bruins could use a bit of a spark.

After dropping two straight games to fall into a 2-1 series hole in this best-of-seven, second-round series with Tampa Bay, coach Bruce Cassidy hinted at potential lineup changes for Friday night's Game 4.

It was difficult, however, to decipher what any tweaks may look like during Thursday's practice at Warrior Ice Arena with Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk both missing the session for maintenance days.

Pastrnak Providing a Helping Hand

Winger dished out four assists to highlight top line's dominating Game 1

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TAMPA - David Pastrnak has put together back-to-back 30-goal campaigns.

His 35 tallies during the regular season paced the Bruins. And he's added five more in just eight games this postseason.

But it's his playmaking ability that has truly risen to the occasion. The 21-year-old winger is leading the NHL with 12 assists during the playoffs, including the four helpers he dished out during Boston's 6-2 victory over the Lightning in Game 1 of their second-round series on Saturday.
