That’s not a fight, it is a Kuraly goal celly. (Charlie McAvoy, Frank Vatrano, Sean Kuraly)

The Bruins bested the Vegas Golden Knights and their AHL backup goaltender 2-1 last night and now prepare to host the Capitals on Saturday at 7:00 PM on NESN.

  • Quick hits from last night include the observation that Sean Kuraly is standing in for David Backes for now. If only he were better at the faceoff dot! Boston Globe
  • The Bruins top line may be a threat every night, but last night's scoring came from deeper in the roster. Riley Nash and Kuraly each scored, and Tuukka Rask looked solid. Patriot Ledger
  • The type of contest you saw last night will be the Bruins game plan until the injured return to the lineup. WEEI
  • He's baaaaaack.... Matt Beleskey was tapped to replace some of the banging lost in the absence of Backes, whose surgery yesterday was a success. We can see Torey Krug's handsome face once again. Bonus- Ryan White remains with the Bruins. Boston Herald
  • They don't ask how, they ask how many. Both Bruins goals were first-of-the-season tallies, down and dirty at net-front. Boston Herald
  • Six weeks of sickness and injury have been hard on the Bruins roster. Here's a recap and projected return to action for each player. MassLive
  • The surprising Golden Knights are off to a fine start, especially considering their bad luck in keeping any goaltenders healthy. Bruins Daily
  • Coach Gerard Gallant assured the press that he has actually met his new backup goaltender, who is fresh from the WHL in Kamloops. As in Major Junior. This was in keeping with the PBruins-heavy roster in Boston. Here's to the kids, eh? Bruins Daily
  • Got plans? Willie O’Ree will be in Springfield, MA tonight. He reminisced about his first visit, which was less than auspicious. MassLive
