Last night in Providence, at the Bruins annual Black & White game at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, rookie Alexander Khokhlachev lead team Black to a 4-1 victory. Lane MacDermid and Daniel Paille also added goals for the Black squad, while 2010 2nd Round Draft choice Ryan Spooner scored the lone goal for the White team. The youngest player at Bruins training camp, Khokhlachev proved last night, what his true offensive potential is.
Following the game, the B’s returned their 2011 3rd round draft choice, Anthony Camara to the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires, and assigned Tyler Randell, Yannick Riendeau, Stefan Chaput, Calle Ridderwall & Kyle MacKinnon to the Providence Bruins.
In a bit of bad news for the Black & Gold, new defenseman Joe Corvo left the game early in the first, after suffering a mild lower body injury. This coming before news broke this morning that center David Krecji left B’s practice in Wilmington, after feeling the effects of lower body tightness.
Tonight, the Bruins officially kick off their 2011 Pre-season schedule, in Ottawa at ScotiaBank Place. The game starts at 7 PM, and will be broadcast on 98.5 The Sports Hub, the radio home of the Bruins. Unfortunately, the game will not be carried on local television. Today, the Bruins have announced the roster for tonight’s game against the Senators:
Benoit Pouliot-Patrice Bergeron-Jamie Tardif
Jordan Caron-Tyler Seguin-Jamie Arniel
Max Sauve-Ryan Spooner-Chris Clark
Lane MacDermid-Chris Kelly-Shawn Thornton
Andrew Ference-Colby Cohen
Matt Bartkowski-Adam McQuaid
David Warsofsky-Dougie Hamilton
It is expected that Goaltender Tuukka Rask, will play the full 60 minutes tonight, barring something crazy and unexpected.
