Finally, after a long lockout where it looked like the season might be lost, hockey is back starting on Saturday when the Bruins host the New York Rangers.

Bruins forward Rich Peverley joined Gresh & Zo after practice to preview the upcoming NHL season. Peverley told the guys about playing overseas during the NHL lockout, the B’s team dynamic and how his injured knee is doing.

As a result of the 2012 NHL lockout, Peverley signed a contract to play overseas. How does he feel about having made the trip, especially since he suffered an MCL injury last season?

“For myself I think it was definitely the right decision. I missed 25 games last year, probably from about a year ago today and I think it was the right decision for myself to play. I definitely feel good in camp and played 30 games so far, so I feel pretty good.”

For the most part this team has stayed the same except that they are without starting goalie Tim Thomas. This means that Tuukka Rask will step into the starting role this season. Is Rask ready for a larger role?

“We know we’re confident in Tuukka, and Anton too. Tuukka has proved in the league before that he’s a top goaltender, and he’s really looking for that chance,” said Peverley. “I think he’s one of the best in the leagues, and he just has to come out and show everybody how good he is.”
