A little more from practice…
Melissa, one of two crack media relations interns currently working for the B’s, reported in to the Bish Cave:

  • Forward Mark Mowers scored a nice goal in the after practice scrimmage, which resulted in an impressive on-ice victory dance by the ex-UNH Wildcat.

  • Goalie Joey MacDonald wore his brand new Bruins pads today. It was the first time I’ve seen them and they look sharp! Two thumbs up! Very chic!

  • Injured forward P.J. Axelsson was in Ristuccia and he signed a jersey for a Bruins superfan named Mike. Mike, 22, has Juvenile Huntington’s Disease. A true collector of Black & Gold sweaters, he estimated that he has between 30-40 Bruins jerseys, he was elated to meet P.J. and truly enjoyed watching the B’s practice.

    Coach Speak
    On Glen Murray’s absence:
    It’s tough to replace a veteran with his leadership ability, let alone his playing ability, and the importance he has to our top six forwards. But we’re going to do the best we can.

    On the challenges the team faces with the loss of Murray and Axelsson:
    One of the biggest challenges is the effect losing key players (has on a team) and the subsequent attitude of the team going up against any opponent -- let alone a good opponent. You have to convince them that they still can win…That’s as big a thing in the (locker) room (as anything). And a coaching staff (needs to present) that to the players so that they believe it and they carry it over into the game.

    On the adjustments Marc Savard needs to make without Murray and Axelsson:
    He’s lost Axie and Glen so today we had Phil and Chuck Kobasew (with him). Totally different type players, different age, different experience, difference skaters, different shooters, (and) they read the game differently…Savvy has to make adjustments according to who he’s playing with. I count on him to do that.

    On the team’s strategy for playing against Ovechkin:
    We know some of his tendencies like the other teams do. We try limiting his chances, because he’s so good, (so) that he doesn’t a lot of space or opportunity. You can do a good job on him for fifty-five minutes, (but if you) don’t do it for five minutes, you could end up with two goals. We’re aware of his ability, his speed, his skill level, and then he’s surrounded by a group of hard workers. We pay attention to him.
