MONTREAL — BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins opened their season with a surprising flurry of goals, and survived a second period New York comeback for a 5-3 victory over the Rangers last night.
The Bruins had scored just 18 goals in their eight exhibition games, all played without Cam Neely, who scored 51 last season. He's sidelined at least through December with a thigh injury.
