Still Looking for Number One

Still Looking for Number One
Three of the newest Bruins are learning firsthand that it’s not always about how many of your shots make it past the opposing team’s goalie.

The “Baby B’s” line of David Krejci, Pascal Pelletier, and Vladimir Sobotka, all recalled from the AHL this year, is still waiting for its scoreboard debut.

Still, in their first five games together, the line garnered praise from the coaches and their teammates for their hard work.

“We just go out there and play,” said Pelletier.

After this morning’s practice, the right winger explained that being an important part of the team doesn’t solely depend on scoring.

“It’s not like we don’t create anything,” he said, obviously grateful for the compliments the line is receiving.  “It does help to know that the coach appreciates our good job.”

They may still be searching for its first NHL goal, but the boys aren’t being too hard on themselves.

“When you don’t score, there are some different roads you can take: the road of being down on yourself, and the other one of being positive,” Pelletier said.  “Right now, I’m taking that road [of being positive] because I think we’re playing good.

Pelletier knows that, as the youngsters of the team, the line may still be getting used to the feel of the big leagues.

“We’re not as comfortable as we’d like to be, but that will take time,” he said.  “For my part, it’s only been five games.”

“I think we’ve just got to keep working hard.”

The line is no stranger to finding the net.

“We’ve been scoring goals wherever we went…all our lives,” Pelletier said.

Before being recalled on January 16, Pelletier led the AHL in scoring.  He was to spend last night playing in the AHL All-Star Game in Binghamton, NY.

“We’ll be able to eventually put on in, and then from there, we’ll start (scoring) more,” he said.

Until then, the line is just waiting for some good karma.

Pelletier said he feels that “it’s just a matter of someone turning the switch on and off up there (points upward toward the sky) and giving some luck.  Eventually those pucks will go in.

“I know it’s going to come.”
