Boston Bruins fans won’t get their first look at newly acquired defenseman Andrej Meszaros Thursday night against the Washington Capitals.
It was the Bruins’ first game back from the Olympic break and it sure did look like it. Adam Jones talked with Dave Goucher and Bob Beers following the B’s 5-4 loss to the Sabres Wednesday night.
Zdeno Chara returned to practice with the Bruins on Monday at TD Garden.
Bruins captain Zdeno Chara took a few minutes to reflect on his two weeks in Sochi, which he called “one of the greatest experiences” of his life.
After a bad month (or more) for the Bruins leading up to the Sochi games, Tuukka Rask’s debut in net for Team Finland featured 4 goals allowed on just 20 shots. Even still, Dave Goucher is not concerned.

Zdeno Chara is 6-foot-9, and the standard Olympic beds in Sochi just wouldn’t cut it for him.
The Bruins’ defensive corps is about to get a lot shorter and a lot younger, but it’s not necessarily the worst thing for the Bruins.
Tuukka looked good against Vancouver, but the 26-year-old hasn’t looked right for over a month now. Is it fatigue due to an increased workload as the full time starter? Maybe, maybe not. But don’t expect the schedule to change between he and Chad Johnson down the home stretch.
Bruins defenseman Torey Krug thinks the hockey world has changed over the years, and even though Team Canada is “stacked” the gold medal is up in the air.
