BOSTON (CBS) – Hockey is back, as the Boston Bruins will take the ice on Monday night for their preseason debut.
The B’s are up in Montreal tonight, one of two games they’ll play against the rival Canadiens over the next two days.
98.5 The Sports Hub’s Bruins analyst Bob Beers joined WBZ-TV’s Sports Final on Sunday night, previewing what to expect from Boston this season. Here are a few of the topics he and Steve Burton discussed:
– How will newcomers Loui Eriksson and Jarome Iginla fit in?
– Chris Kelly is looking to bounce back after a tough 2012-13 regular season. Who will be next to Kelly on the third line this year?
– Patrice Bergeron and Gregory Campbell have both been practicing, a great sign after the two suffered injuries during the playoffs. What can we expect from these two key contributors going forward?
As always, Beers will have the call along with Dave Goucher on Monday night on 98.5 The Sports Hub. Coverage begins at 7 p.m..
