Group A is on the ice:
Black (D-men): Chara, Stuart, Wideman, Lashoff, Ference, Hunwick.
Black (goalies): Sigalet, Thomas
I sat down with Marty Karsums after practice and we talked about his experiences at this year's training camp and how he prepared for the 2007-08 season. Click the link below to listen to our conversation.
With the second squad preparing for their session, I was able to catch up with Mark Stuart after the first. Hang on for that interview.
Group B is on the ice and beginning their sesssion:
Black (D-men): Allen, Alberts, Ward, Sigalet, Curry
Black (goalies): Brown, Fernandez
Just like the first group, it looks as if they are working on offensive breakouts, etc. If the pattern holds, they will do some penalty kill and power play work.
This time I talked to defenseman Andrew Alberts.
Rookies on the ice:
White: Collins, Rabbit, Knackstedt
Gold: Jorgenson, Sobotka, Bitz
Red: Lehtonen, Orr, Hamill
Black (D-men): Boyle, Reul, Bodnarchuk, McQuaid
Black (goal): Rask
I tracked down Zach Hamill and asked him about the rookie game and Training Camp.
By the way, according to Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien, Team A (from this morning, whose lines are listed above) will be the squad that travels to St. John's tomorrow.
Savvy, Z and me, on The Rock!
5:33 p.m. Just updated the front page with roster news. I am sure we will see some of those guys back in Boston in the not-too-distant future.
And I also updated my Bear Essentials from yesterday with some Podcasts. Click here to revisit Saturday's scrimmage and hear Adam McQuaid, Phil Kessel and GM Peter Chiarelli.
Ok, off to write some other stuff. I hope that I run into some of you in Newfoundland!
