Bruins vs Coyotes Preview
The Bruins scored two goals on their first two shots in their season opener, but couldn’t push the puck across the face of the goal the rest of the way.
Fortunately, it was good enough for a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.
In his first game since leaving Dallas to sign a one-year, $1 million deal with the Bruins, forward Brett Ritchie scored on his former teammates 69 seconds after the opening drop. Center Danton Heinen doubled the lead about four minutes later, beating Stars goalie Ben Bishop from the left circle on a power play.
Boston goalie Tuukka Rask made 28 stops.
“Felt like a playoff game. Just a little bit more exciting than your average Tuesday night,” Ritchie said, according to the Bruins’ official website. “It felt good, obviously, whenever you can chip in. I really just wanted the two points. It was a bit of a scramble game, but that’s all I really care about.
“I’m still confident in what I can do. New team, new opportunity, fresh start, whatever you want to call it. I’m just going to try to take advantage of it.”
He added: “You’re not gonna score on your first two shots very often, but we jumped out to an early lead there and had momentum for much of the first and then they took it to us a little bit in the second there. [Tuukka Rask] was great. That’s hockey. It was a little bit back and forth, but it was a good road win. On to the next one.”
After surrendering a goal in the second, Rask stopped all 16 shots he faced in the final period.
“I felt the best in the third actually, I don’t know if that’s because I had the most action or what,” Rask said, per the team’s site. “Good win overall. I saw the puck pretty well. I think the guys did a good job of keeping them to the outside, made a couple huge blocks. That was obviously key. It helps when you see it. You just try to make yourself big and make those saves.”
The Coyotes dropped their season debut on Thursday, falling to the Anaheim Ducks in California despite outshooting their foes 32-29.
Forward Phil Kessel, in his first game since being traded to Arizona by the Pittsburgh Penguins, factored into his side’s lone goal midway through the second period, feeding Derek Stepan, who found the top shelf.
“I thought we played pretty well tonight,” Kessel said, according to The Associated Press. “We were skating, just one of those nights where we couldn’t get more than one.”
