Power line breaks through for Bruins in their first game
In the first period of Saturday’s 3-1 win over the Rangers at TD Garden, David Krejci hauled in a long-distance pass from Andrew Ference. Krejci, stickhandling on the right wing, spotted a blur of black streaking down the other side of the ice.

Krejci didn’t waste any time. The center aimed a slap shot far pad. As Krejci expected, Henrik Lundqvist kicked out the shot with his right pad. But because Milan Lucic was choo-chooing down the left side, the left wing was in the right spot to tap in the rebound before Lundqvist could recover.

“I looked that there was somebody coming,” Krejci said following Sunday’s practice at the Garden. “I just tried to shoot wide for a big rebound. It worked.”

No sitting back in shortened season .
“You want to build that consistency and confidence in your game, so you’re coming to the rink every night knowing that you can win — and if you play the right way, you’re giving yourself the best chance,” Milan Lucic said.

“With all the emotion that went into (Saturday’s game), I think the focus was there, too. We had an option (on whether to practice yesterday at the Garden or stay off ice) and the guys wanted to go out there and keep this going, keep the flow of things going.”

David Warsofsky appearance a cameo .
Former Boston University star David Warsofsky was thrilled to have a spot on the Bruins’ roster coming out of the brief training camp. Though he didn’t play in Saturday’s season opener at the Garden against the New York Rangers, the Marshfield native at least got the experience of being introduced and skating out in front of a raucous, sellout crowd.

Alas, Warsofsky was demoted to Providence of the AHL after the game. Veteran defenseman Aaron Johnson, who played 56 games last year for Columbus, completed a two-game conditioning assignment with Providence and was recalled.

Bruins winger Daniel Paille feeling good about his game
Paille, a long-serving member of the Bruins’ fourth line with Campbell and right wing Shawn Thornton, imported his current supply of confidence from Finland. Determined to be game-ready when/if the NHL lockout ended, he joined the Ilves Tampere team for nine games, scoring 2 goals and 6 points before returning to Boston earlier this month.

“Going overseas definitely helped me gain not only confidence, but just a feel for the puck and knowing where to be,” he said. “I played a lot in Finland – close to 20 minutes a game. It prepared me to be in great shape for the start of the year here, but I didn’t play so many games that I feel tired.”

Paille looks like he has some big things in store for us this year... Can't see him being on the 4th line all year...worked great with Pervs and Kelly. He deserves more ice time IMO.

his speed is so nice, Lou - that and his ability to break plays up really helps to generate some good mojo.

Problem is that his speed really makes that 4th line what it is... Tough spot there. Move him and hurt a line, or keep him there and not get all you could out of him.

Love Lucic's attitude. Hope he brings his "mean face" most nights... He really is unstoppable when he plays like that.

Hockey bags carry a distinctly disgusting aroma
No, that’s not a typo.

Pee youuuuuuu. That’s the distinctively disgusting smell of the hockey equipment bag.

Unzip it at your own peril. It contains a witch’s brew of bacteria, sweat, mucus, dried blood, metal, foam, and plastic. The scent has been described as a combination of rotten eggs, dirty socks, a wet dog, and low tide.

The hockey bag smell drives hockey moms bonkers.

“I’d say the hockey bag is the smelliest thing in the world,” said Laura Norris as she gazed lovingly at her son Cal, a clean-scrubbed 7-year-old munching on pizza before a Bruins scrimmage game.

Bruins looked in midseason form in opener
The Bruins, fresh from a 268-day respite, opened their 2013 season Saturday night with an impressive 3-1 win over the Rangers in which they played most of the night with a lead, tilted the ice their way about 70 percent of the time, committed precious few errors, and otherwise made the Blueshirts far bluer and blander than most of their recent visits to Causeway Street.

“Give them credit,’’ said Ranger coach John Tortorella, noting play too often was at the Ranger end of the building. “They’re a pretty good hockey club.’’
