Bruins Win Opener

Bergeron's return was memorable as Boston defeated Colorado 5-4 in Denver last night despite being outshot 39 - 20.

Timmy, once again, was the difference maker making 35 saves for the victory (this seems to be a 2 and a half year theme now).

Ryder did what he was brought in to do - score.

Savard had a goal and an assist, while Krejci scored late in the 3rd to give the B's the lead and the win.

Kessel and Wheeler had Boston's other tallies.

3 stars as picked by me:

1 - Thomas (still our best player)
2 - Savard (big game as usual)
3 - Ryder (finally have the goal scorer we were missing last season)

Great to see that the flagship station NESN couldn't even get the season opener. If Timmy keeps up I may bring back Timmy is God again later in the year. I hope the hell they re-sign him. Even if he gets moved to back-up or tandem with Tuuka next season, I think it would be benificial to Rask to have Timmy's experience.

Very spread out office and all the key players contributed; Bergeron, Ryder, Wheeler, Savard...

Tim Thomas Is GOD!!!!

There is a REASON Claude put him in opening game and not Fernandez!!!

Tim Thomas is my favorite player, always will be!

It's been 3 years since the B's won their opening game! They deserved this!
