The Bruins Looked More Like The Team We Know And Love In A Fast Starting, Competitive, Rootin' Tootin' High Shootin' Game Against The Senators. Patrice Bergeron Was Injured, Dougie Hamilton's Key Hit Set Up the Game Winning Goal, And Anton Khudobin stopped 45 To Win Both Of His Back-To-Back Starts.

<p><b> The Boston Bruins, who prepare to welcome Jaromir Jagr, looked more like themselves last night in a tight match, defeating the the Ottawa Senators:</b></p>

<li> But the cost... lynchpin Patrice Bergeron left the game, the injury appeared to involve contact to his head. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/9127397/patrice-begeron-boston-bruins-leaves-game-injury">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Anton Khudobin made 45 stops in the shooting gallery, David Krecji and Tyler Seguin each scored in the first period, and Nathan Horton potted the rebound of a Milan Lucic shot for the win in the third.

<li> Dobby had this to say about his goaltending style... [<a href="https://twitter.com/NHLBruins/status/319287067479785472">@NHLBruins^CS</a>]</li>

<li> Meanwhile, Lucic and Krecji are excited by the opportunity to play alongside Jaromir Jagr. Well, DUH... [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/bruins_insider/2013/04/milan_lucic_and_david_krejci_are_excited_to_play_with">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> ...does anyone recognize the happy lad on the left in this picture of young fans with a young Jagr? [<a href="http://bigbadblog.weei.com/sports/boston/hockey/bruins/2013/04/02/a-picture-says-a-thousand-words-jaromir-jagr-is-so-much-older-than-milan-lucic/">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Claude Julien and Zdeno Chara spoke about what the Bruins' expectations were with the addition of Jagr. Chara was coy about what he told Peter Chiarelli when asked for his input on the decision.

<li> David Krecji was apparently more candid when asked the same question. #Krejmedian. [<a href="https://twitter.com/DJ_Bean/status/319265920952459264">@DJ_Bean</a>]</li>

<li> Peter Chiarelli's machinations continue until trade deadline, as "It's never done..." So hold onto your hats. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/bruins/post/_/id/11510/deadline-day-has-chiarelli-weighing-options">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> A likely target would be a left-shot defenseman, and Chris Kelly and Adam McQuaid are working with the conditioning coach on-ice. Anton Khudobin finished back-to-back starts, both wins. [<a href="http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/2013/04/02/bruins-still-hunt-for-defenseman/6DJIyrvq3WM9B9Dy4kaxdP/story.html">BostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Thanks and farewell, Lane MacDermid, we hope to see you around the NHL. And props to Dougie Hamilton for the key hit that left him a bit shaken, but set up Horton's game winning goal.

<li> And one ...parting... shot on Jagr's epic, sick flow. [<a href="https://twitter.com/WeberKing/status/319459762314018816">@WeberKing</a>]</li>
