WILMINGTON, Mass. (AP) The Boston Bruins conducted their first on-ice training camp practices for the new season on Friday, and they're already thinking about redemption.
The Bruins want to atone for the way last season ended. They had the best record in the NHL during the regular season with 117 points, then fell short of the Stanley Cup by losing in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs to the archrival Montreal Canadiens.
"I think it was a tough year last year and (I have) a lot to prove this year," left winger Brad Marchand said after practice at Ristuccia Arena. "So I was very excited to get back on today and get this underway and get the season going."
