  • Boston will be without the services of Torey Krug for at least three weeks as he recovers from that puck to the face suffered against Detroit. The preseason thus far has not been kind to the Bruins hopes for a healthy roster. Two youngsters have been sent back to their junior team. Boston Globe
  • Anders Bjork has now tasted the speed of the professional game, and understands the need to "reset" in readiness for each shift. Jakub Zboril has cut his teeth in the pros, Jake DeBrusk and Anton Khudobin will build on their performances. (With video) Bruins NHL
  • Bjork and DeBrusk appear to be getting the lion's share of looks so far. Bruins Daily
  • Speaking of Khudobin, he began his training early this offseason, and credits one thing for boosting his overall fitness. CBS Boston
