  • Which is happier- home opening night or (cross your fingers!) news that Patrice Bergeron should be back in the lineup? The Boston Globe
  • Claude Julien, who was also a defenseman and Oshawa General in his youth, paused to reflect on his memories of Bobby Orr. Bonus: David Pastrnak's confidence showed in dogged puck battles against Dustin Byfuglien. The media are enjoying the new press room at Warrior Arena. The Boston Globe
  • Brandon Carlo and Zdeno Chara are the defensive pairing that is leading the Bruins and the numbers support this. (With video of Julien and Bergeron speaking about Bobby Orr) NESN
  • So far, so good three whole games into the season... a detailed look at what the Bruins need to address and what has worked so far. Fox Sports
  • Winning is a home-grown effort for the Bruins, and they cannot suffer losing on home ice like last year and still expect to make the playoffs. Boston Herald
  • Celebrating 50 years of Bobby Orr. (With interview videos) TSN
