NHL Center Ice showed this game online, preseason is free and I'm loving it. The Bruins won the game 3-1, dominating New York. Thomas and Sigalet played solid in net, but the best part of all was the fact that the Bruins threw down the gloves four times. Shawn Thornton, Milan Lucic, Andrew Ference and Zdeno Chara (yes, Chara threw down) all fought Islanders players last night.
Two goals came from Jeff Hoggan and one from Chuck Kobasew, who has been playing very well in camp. The Bruins also had a very different defense style. I can't quite name what is was. One guy would attack the puck while the four other guys would play in a square like zone, all backing up the guy who was attacking the puck while covering guys on the other team. It looked good, and it shut down the Islanders. Hopefully this system will work a lot better then the Dave Lewis method.
