Even though the NHL season started on Tuesday, for many here in the New England area it doesn’t get into full swing until tonight. This marks the home opener of the Boston Bruins 90th Anniversary season, and what many fans hope will be a season of payback for the heartbreaking loss suffered by the B’s in the Stanley Cup Finals last year.
This team is quite different than last year and there will be several questions to be answered in the quest for another Cup.
Some of the biggest questions that pop into my mind are as follows:
- Will the Bruins miss Tyler Seguin?
- Will Loui Eriksson fit in and contribute?
- Will Jarome Iginla be better than he was with the Penguins?
- Can the young defensemen step up and take over?
- Is Patrice Bergeron fully recovered from the injuries he suffered during the playoffs?
