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."

BostonBruins.com - Just as Jarome Iginla made his anticipated debut in the spoked-B on Monday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Loui Eriksson suited up in Black & Gold for the first time in game action on Tuesday against the Washington Capitals.

There was some added pressure for Eriksson, with Iginla potting his first two goals as a Bruin against the Habs.

"It’s definitely going to be nice to get the first game going, just get into game shape and I think that’s good to have some games before the season starts," Eriksson said prior to the match-up against the Caps in Baltimore for the second annual "Baltimore Hockey Classic."

BostonBruins.com - The first two preseason games have come and gone, and neither Patrice Bergeron nor Gregory Campbell traveled with their respective training camp groups to play in the action against Montreal and Washington.

For Campbell, though, his first game action since breaking his right leg in the Eastern Conference Finals on June 5, could come as soon as Thursday night (Sept. 18), as the Bruins host the Detroit Red Wings in their first home preseason game of 2013-14 at TD Garden.

The lineup has not yet been announced, but we do know there will be at least eight veterans in the lineup, per NHL rules for preseason games, and Julien said there could be 10 in his lineup on Thursday. Though, it will be a mostly younger lineup, as Julien and the B's brass will be again be using the match-up as an evaluation tool.

BOSTON, MA - The Bruins made their first cuts from training camp on Wednesday, trimming a 51-player group down to 45.

Invites to Boston's camp - Scott Campbell, Jack Downing, Steven Spinell and Ben Youds - are on AHL contracts and will be joining the Providence Bruins training camp which begins Monday, September 23. Winger Tyler Randell and goaltender Adam Morrison, on entry-level level deals with Boston, were assigned to Providence and will also be taking part in the P-Bruins camp.

BostonBruins.com - Once the squad traveling to Baltimore had left Ristuccia Arena on Tuesday, and a group of skaters had started to filter off the ice, there were Patrice Bergeron and Gregory Campbell, going hard with 1-on-1 battles against each other in the corners.

Neither Bruin traveled with their respective groups to Montreal and Baltimore for the B's first two preseason games, taking the more cautious route to make sure they're 100 percent ready to get into battle against opponents.

So there they were - pushing, shoving, trying to protect the puck, stickhandling, jabbing, battling with each other. All to get both of them ready to take the next step in their recoveries: game action.

BostonBruins.com - Tuesday night's preseason game in Baltimore resulted in a 3-2 shootout win over the Washington Capitals for the Black & Gold.

Tuukka Rask and Niklas Svedberg split the time between the pipes, each only allowing a goal.

In Svedberg's spoked-B debut (no preseason action due to the lockout prior to his first pro season with Providence in 2012-13), albeit in exhibition, he stopped 12 of 13 shots in the second half of regulation and into the five-minute 4-on-4 overtime. He followed that up wit six saves in the shootout, as Carter Camper got the B's the win in the eighth round.

Svedberg stoned Alex Ovechkin in close near the end of overtime, settling down the Caps fans who grew louder as 'Ovi' raced up ice.

BALTIMORE, MD - It wasn't quite the same atmosphere as the Bell Centre Monday night (or what we'll see Thursday night at TD Garden when the Detroit Red Wings come to Boston), but the B's second preseason game ended in a 3-2 shootout win over the Washington Capitals in the second annual "Baltimore Hockey Classic" at Baltimore Arena.

"Yeah it was a tough night…pucks were bouncing everywhere, both teams didn’t seem to get any momentum going there," Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien said following the game. "So it wasn’t the prettiest, it wasn’t as entertaining as you would probably like it to be, but at the end of the night it went into overtime and turned into a shootout and we found a way to win."

Justin Florek and Chris Kelly each tallied a goal, with Kelly's tying it up in the third, and Carter Camper scored in the eighth round of the shootout, as the Bruins came back from being down 2-0.
