LAS VEGAS - Bruce Cassidy is staying patient for the time being.
He knows that just two games into the regular season, some of the Bruins' bad offseason habits are still in the process of being kicked from their systems. So, while his charges have managed just three goals through two games - though both of them victories - Cassidy is not quite ready to slap the panic button.
"I wouldn't say frustration. I don't think we're playing the way we need to right now to score, not generating enough, let's start with that," Cassidy said following the Bruins' practice at T-Mobile Arena on Monday afternoon. "We're not playing off an original shot, we're trying to make plays through sticks that maybe aren't there.
"It's a lot to do with how you play in August. It's not really live, you're always trying to make that nice play instead of maybe a play that will generate a loose puck situation and off you go."
