BostonBruins.com - Goaltender Chad Johnson didn't have the best showing in Montreal, in the Bruins' first preseason game. He let in three goals off eight shots, splitting the game with Malcolm Subban in an eventual 6-3 B's win.

But that didn't stop him from following up his next outing, a full-60 between the pipes in Detroit, with a 2-0 shutout, stopping all 18 shots he faced from the Red Wings in the process.

"Half a game doesn't make a career, right? Either way. So he had a chance to redeem himself here," B's Head Coach Claude Julien said following the victory.

DETROIT, MI - It only took Carl Söderberg a minute and 45 seconds to pot his first two goals wearing the spoked-B, giving the the Bruins all they need to take a 2-0 win from the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday night.

The game-winner came with 1:04 left in the second period. When his centerman for the night, Chris Kelly, pounced on a puck between the bluelines and sent it into the zone, Söderberg drove towards the net. A lucky bounce off the end boards (the ones at 'The Joe' known to be more active than other arenas) landed right on his tape at the left circle.

A simple fire into the near-empty net behind Wings' netminder Jonas Gustavsson gave him his first in Black & Gold.

Söderberg's next tally came just 41 seconds into the third, on the man-advantage, as he manned the "net walk" position in front. Loui Eriksson sent a feed from the half wall up to Dennis Seidenberg at the point, who blasted one on goal. With Patrice Bergeron also camped at the top of the crease, Söderberg banged home the rebound.

And, combined with Chad Johnson's 18 stops at the other end in the shutout, it was all the Bruins needed.

DETROIT, MI - As the Bruins skated off the ice at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday night, the scoreboard read 2-0, thanks to Carl Söderberg's first two goals wearing the spoked-B.

But another highlight of the win was the fact that Patrice Bergeron was one of those B's skating off the ice following a postgame huddle in celebration that gave Boston a 3-1 preseason record.

The alternate captain played in his first game back from the injuries he sustained during the Stanley Cup Final - broken rib, torn cartilage, collapsed lung, separated - all which caused him to take a forced 4-5 week rest before even beginning his offseason training.

"Felt pretty good and feeling good now, too, so good to get that first one out of the way and now I can move forward," Bergeron told a handful of reporters, as he stood in the visiting locker room in Detroit.

Bergeron finished with 16:05 in ice time, including 1:43 on the power play, 59 seconds helping the B's kill their three penalties, and taking 19 shifts in the process.

BOSTON, MA - The Bruins hit the ice at TD Garden Saturday morning for a pregame practice, before the travel group heads to Detroit for the 7:00 p.m. (ET) match-up with the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

(The game is not being broadcast locally in the Boston market. Live stats and updates will be available via Twitter @NHLBruins ^CS.)

Patrice Bergeron is set to play in his first preseason game of 2013-14.

"It was not an issue of him not being able to take [contact]; it was an issue of him getting through the little bit he had left," B's Head Coach Claude Julien told reporters Saturday morning before heading to Detroit, of what was holding Bergeron back.

From the first day of training camp, the centerman was involved in all the drills, including battling and contact.

BOSTON, MA - There will be a welcome addition to the Bruins' lineup for Saturday's night match-up in Detroit against the Red Wings, with Patrice Bergeron expected to play in his first preseason game of 2013-14.

"Yeah, Bergy’s going to play tomorrow," B's Head Coach Claude Julien confirmed to reporters following Friday's practice sessions at TD Garden. "Who’s got the tweets going?" he jested.

Bergeron's return to game action has been much anticipated ever since he stood with media in the locker room after the Cup Final and gave out a laundry list of injuries he played through that included a broken rib, torn cartilage, collapsed lung and separated shoulder.

BostonBruins.com - If we want to label a "bright spot" in the 8-2 loss to Detroit in the B's third preseason game on Thursday night at TD Garden, it was the return of Gregory Campbell, playing in his first game since breaking his right leg on June 5 during the Eastern Conference Final.

Campbell, who hardly feels discomfort near his right ankle now, with screws and a plate inserted during the surgery, and a new pair of skates to ease the pain, has said the mental aspect now is the hardest to overcome.

That, the next step was just moving forward and playing. He got that opportunity Thursday night and, as expected, when he hit the ice for his first shift of the game, the 16,000-plus on hand gave him a cheer of acknowledgment.

"Of course, I'm extremely appreciative of the support from the fans," Campbell said following the game, of the reaction.

"I want to play hard for them and for the city and the organization and their a passionate group, they know their hockey, so it was very nice to hear that."

BOSTON, MA - Following Boston's 8-2 preseason loss to the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden on Thursday night, a slew of Bruins around the room were feeling like they left Malcolm Subban out "high and dry."

Eight goals off 28 shots against the 19-year-old, who was starting his first game between the pipes in the spoked-B. The young netminder had stopped all 12 shots he faced in Montreal in Monday night's 6-3 win over the Habs.

He admitted he didn't face too much pressure in that game; he got that tonight, and not just in the form of four shots each from Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader. Subban stayed in the entire game, powering through a tough outing.

"We didn’t help him out, that’s for sure and you can’t blame him for tonight’s loss," Captain Zdeno Chara was pretty quick to say postgame in the B's locker room.

BOSTON, MA - It's gameday again at TD Garden, with the Bruins set to host the Detroit Red Wings in their third preseason game (their first in the confines of home) at 7:00 p.m. ET. While only the preseason, it's the first meeting between the two teams since Detroit joined the Eastern Conference for the start of 2013-14. The Wings will now become a divisional opponent for the B's, joining them in the NHL's new Atlantic Division.

The B's held two practices Thursday morning, with the group set to play tonight on the ice first. Gregory Campbell was on the ice, and will be playing in his first game since suffering his broken right leg on June 5 during the Eastern Conference Final. He said Wednesday the next step for him was just move forward and start playing.

He'll be getting that opportunity tonight, likely back with his usual Merlot left winger, Daniel Paille.

"Soupy’s a go. Feels good, feels ready," Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien confirmed following practice. "Our trainers told me yesterday; just before I left they came in and said, 'Listen, if you want to use him tomorrow, he’s a go.' So that’s what we’re going to do; give him a chance to play."
