Let's take a look at how our favorite Bruins players are fairing overseas.

Defenseman Andrew Ference took his game to the Czech Republic, suiting up for the Ceske Budejovice in the Czech Extraliga. Ference has played in six games, notching one assist for one point. He is also a +1 rating and has picked up four pim.

David Krejci is also in the Czech Extraliga with HC Pardubice. Krejci is averaging more than a point per game, compiling seven goals and four assists for 11 points in just 10 games.

One of the Bruins top defenseman, Dennis Seidenberg, stayed in his native Germany, playing for Adler Mannheim. He has been solid, grabbing two points on two assists in seven games. Seids is also a +4 rating.

Patrice Bergeron took his game to Switzerland, where he is playing for HC Lugano. Bergeron is flat out lighting it up, compiling six goals and five assists for 11 points in just five games. He is also an impressive +13 rating in those five games.

Rich Peverley is in Finland playing for JYP. Peverley is playing like his usual self over there, making plays and dishing out nine assists in 11 games played. He has also added one goal for 10 points.

Tuukka Rask has been solid is net for HC Plzen in the Czech Extraliga. Rask has a 6-2 record in net, posting a .936 save percentage and an eye-popping 1.85 GAA. This past week, Rask was pulled from a game after tweaking his groin, but seems to be just fine, as he was just taking precautionary measures.

Tyler Seguin is also in Switzerland, suiting up for EHC Biel. Seguin has continued his offensive success from last season, compiling 16 points in 12 games over there, on eight goals and eight assists.

Big Z, Zdeno Chara, is playing in the Kontinental Hockey League, amongst some of the top NHL players, with HC Lev Praha. Z has notched a goal and three assists for four points in seven games, going up against the top forwards on opposing teams, much like he does for our beloved B's.

Although the NHL is locked out, Bruins players are staying sharp, keeping their games tuned for when the lockout is eventually lifted.

Go B's!
