The Boston Bruins roster is beginning to take shape. Yesterday, Tommy Cross and Jordan Szwarz were sent down to Providence joining others teammates sent down on Sunday. Last week, Cédric Paré and Jack Studnicka were returned to their junior teams.

Cross and Szwarz still have to clear waivers to get to the Providence Bruins camp. Malcolm Subban is still in the Boston camp and saw game action last night. He would also need to clear waivers to get to the P-Bruins.

There are two more games to be played and more decisions to be made but it looks like this team will have plenty of youth.

Let’s talk about last night’s game.

No Toews. No Kane. No Keith. While Chicago was clearly testing their younger players, Cassidy rolled out his new look first line of Marchand-Bergeron-Bjork, which looks like a good one.

In the first 10 minutes of the game, three Bruins scored: David Pastrnak (0:52), Jeremy Lauzon (1:28), and Anders Bjork (9:46).

It’s nice to have some fire power, even against the other teams scrubs.

That’s not to say that they’re weren’t some clunky shots. Noel Acciari was storming toward an open side of the net on a breakaway but managed to lift the pass high and wide. Even Bjork had a similarly good opportunity but failed shot. But they got it down, even with Ol’ Man Bergeron putting the bow on the package with a power play goal.

As for Malcolm, he wasn’t perfect but he looked pretty solid through much of the game.

After watching some of these youngsters play, I think this season is going to be fun.
