Remember when we were younger and more naïve and thought that we were happy that the Bruins were playing another game. Maybe you were excited that they were playing a team they beat the stuffing out of seven times last season. Or maybe you heard that former Bruins legend Martin Jones was in net for Philadelphia. Well, things didn’t turn out quite how we’d have liked.
It started off rough and then turned into a dumpster fire. Swayman let in 5 goals on 24 shots. The power play came up lame in its only attempt. And the team was sloppy with plenty of turnovers, some of which resulted in goals against. And the team lost Nick Foligno during the second period to an upper body injury. Which makes me wonder if Chris Wagner will get the call-up to replace him at right wing on the third line.
I don’t really feel like recapping, so here are the people you might want to hear from.
