8 a.m.: The Bruins are among just a handful of teams who have only played three games in this young NHL season, but their slate is about to pick up in the coming days, and that starts with matinee action Saturday in Ohio. The B’s are on the road for the first time all season Saturday when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena. It will mark the Bruins’ fourth game of the season, and their second against a new conference mate. Like Detroit, the Blue Jackets are also new to the Eastern Conference this season although CBJ is a member of the Metropolitan Division. After losing their season opener to Calgary, the Blue Jackets have bounced back to win their last two games. The Bruins, meanwhile, are coming off their first loss of the season. The upstart Colorado Avalanche came into Boston on Thursday night and shut out the Bruins 2-0 behind a vintage performance from Jean-Sebastien Giguere. It was an obvious step back offensively for the Bruins who struggled to capitalize on their chances. Saturday would be a nice day for either one of the Bruins’ top lines to really break out. It’s been a work in progress as the top six continue to get accustomed to playing together. That process is ongoing in part because Nathan Horton signed with the Blue Jackets this summer. He’s yet to make his Columbus debut this season, however, as he’s still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Puck drop from Columbus is slated for 2 p.m. Filed under: Boston Bruins, Headlines, Live Blog, Mike Cole
