Bruins Daily: Bruins Regroup; Wings-Bertuzzi; Flyers Fire Fletcher
The Boston Bruins regrouped at practice Friday after a listless third period and 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.
That and your latest Boston Bruins and NHL news and nuggets in the latest Bruins Daily:
After blowing a third period lead for only the third time this season, Patrice Bergeron and the Boston Bruins want to reestablish their third period identity against the Detroit Red Wings today at TD Garden (1 p.m. ET).
In order to do that, Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery wants his team to stop passing up shots and be more competitive on offense.
A Boston Globe report on Thursday had Boston Bruins winger Taylor Hall returning to the lineup within the next two weeks, but Montgomery told the media there’s still no timetable for either Hall or fellow winger Nick Foligno.
