|BOSTON: LAST SEASON: 50-20-12, 112 points. Second in Atlantic Division. |
LOST to Tampa Bay Lightning in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Bruce Cassidy (second full season, third full NHL season).
ADDED: D John Moore, D Steven Kampfer, G Jaroslav Halak, F Joakim Nordstrom, F Chris Wagner
LOST: F Tommy Wingels, F Rick Nash, F Riley Nash, D Adam McQuaid, F Tim Schaller
PLAYER TO WATCH: Patrice Bergeron. The Bruins No. 1 center had 63 points in 64 games last season but, at 32, he had offseason groin surgery and back spasms have kept him off the ice for part of training camp. Boston's top line of Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand scored a total of 208 points in the regular season and 53 more in 12 playoff games.
OUTLOOK: The Bruins are poised for another strong regular-season run behind the core of Zdeno Chara, Bergeron and goalie Tuukka Rask. Last year, they advanced in the playoffs for the first time since 2014, but they'll have to get further for this year to be a success.
|ST LOUIS: LAST SEASON: 44-32-6, 94 points. Finished fourth in Central Division, one point shy of a playoff spot.
COACH: Mike Yeo (second full season, eighth NHL season).
ADDED: C Ryan O'Reilly, C Tyler Bozak, F David Perron, F Patrick Maroon, G Chad Johnson.
LOST: F Vladimir Sobotka, F Patrik Berglund, F Tage Thompson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Ryan O'Reilly. St. Louis was active this offseason, highlighted by a blockbuster trade with Buffalo that netted the skilled O'Reilly. The 27-year-old center had 24 goals and 37 assists in his final season with the lowly Sabres. Playing for the refurbished Blues, he could be headed for a big year.
OUTLOOK: Loaded. The addition of O'Reilly, Bozak, Perron and Maroon should create a deep set of lines, and captain Alex Pietrangelo remains one of the NHL's top defensemen. The most pressing concern for St. Louis just might be the health of high-scoring winger Vladimir Tarasenko, who is coming back from April surgery on his left shoulder.
|Streak over, Blues try to squash Bruins' run|
While the St. Louis Blues' historic winning streak has ended, the surging Boston Bruins keep rolling along.
The Blues on Saturday will look to rebound from their first loss in a month and keep the visiting Bruins from extending their season-high winning streak to eight games.
St. Louis went from underachiever to third in the Central Division thanks to a club-record 11-game winning streak that followed a 4-3 loss at Los Angeles on Jan. 21. The Blues outscored their opponents 43-16 and posted four shutouts during the streak.
The run ended with Thursday's 5-2 loss at Dallas. Ryan O'Reilly had a goal with an assist, and Vladimir Tarasenko scored for the ninth time in eight games, but the Blues couldn't overcome a 3-0 hole.
"The streak is over," O'Reilly told NHL.com. "We've got to reinvent ourselves every game and establish our game again."
St. Louis last dropped two straight on Jan. 15 and 17 -- the latter, 5-2 at Boston. The Blues are riding a season-high five-game home winning streak.
"It's going to be a tough one against Boston," said O'Reilly, who has four goals and six assists in the past seven games. "That's a really good team we're going to face."
While the Bruins' seven-game winning streak is the club's longest since taking 12 in a row in March 2014, they also have earned at least a point in 12 straight games since a 3-2 regulation defeat to the New York Rangers on Jan. 19.
Boston has also remained successful minus star David Pastrnak, who has been out since Feb. 10 with a thumb injury.
"We're being resilient right now, finding ways to win," forward Brad Marchand told the Bruins' official website.
That was the case in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win at Vegas. Jake DeBrusk scored in his fifth straight game and Jaroslav Halak stopped 31 shots for his third consecutive victory. The Bruins have won a season-high four consecutive road games and earned at least a point in six straight away from home.
"When a team wins a lot of games in a row it's because everyone is pulling their own weight," Bruins coach Jack Cassidy told NHL.com.
Boston could get more of a boost with the expected Bruins debut Saturday of forward Charlie Coyle, a Massachusetts native. Acquired Wednesday from Minnesota for Ryan Donato and a 2019 draft pick, Coyle had 10 goals with 18 assists in 60 games for the Wild this season.
The Bruins' extended their point streak over St. Louis to four games with the January win. Chris Wagner had a goal and an assist, David Krejci recorded three assists and Tuukka Rask made 28 saves for Boston.
Krejci has eight assists and 10 points in the past five games. Rask, who could be in net to conclude Boston's five-game trip, has won six in a row.
O'Reilly scored at Boston in January and Jake Allen made 22 saves. Allen, who stopped 32 shots in a 3-0 win over Colorado in his most recent start last Saturday, could be in goal after Jordan Binnington's nine-game winning streak ended Thursday.
It's uncertain if Blues forward Brayden Schenn, who has 15 points in his last 14 games, will miss a second straight contest because of an upper-body injury.
