The Bruins dropped their second pre-season game last night, 5-1 against the Red Wings. They’ll get a rematch of sorts in Detroit on Friday.
The loss itself was not a big deal, as the Bruins were trying out a lot of young players with a few veterans. Malcolm Subban looked far less than stellar while allowing 4 goals on 34 shots. (And he wasn’t rocking the sweet black pads from last year.) Austin Czarnik had the B’s sole goal and Zach Senyshyn and Colin Miller both lead the Bruins with 5 shots on goal. Adam McQuaid didn’t send the puck over the glass but did spend time in the box for high-sticking and roughing. The Pride of Rhode Island, Noel Acciari, left the ice in the third period with a leg injury and did not return to the game. Please, let it be minor.
The Red Wings debuted their special gloveless high-fiving goal celebration. Is this that weird?
