A handful of Bruins went overseas to stay in game shape during the lockout. Milan Lucic wasn’t one of those players. Instead, Lucic stuck around Boston to work out and skate on his own, and according to the big winger, he managed to stay in shape. “I haven’t gotten fat, I know that much,” Lucic said on Toucher and Rich. “I will say, after not playing a game since the end of April it’s tough to be in peak game shape in January like you’re used to.” With the lockout nearing an end — and NHL teams expecting to partake in a brief training camp beginning this Sunday — Lucic and his mates have been working out together at Boston University and Ristuccia Arena all week.

Vote: Will David Krejci Lead the Bruins in Points This Season?

David Krejci joined the Bruins at practice on Friday, moving the Black and Gold one step closer to full power in advance of the team’s first game. Last year, Krejci tallied 62 points centering the Bruins’ first line, and coach Claude Julien will likely look to the 26-year-old to fill the role again this season.

Ty Anderson: Open Wing: Bourque, MacDermid, Spooner, Tardif, and...Pandolfo?

The Boston Bruins are an interesting team in the sense that just about every spot on the club’s forward core is set. No, honestly. You have your first line featuring Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton, and David Krejci. Then there’s the second line, and perhaps their most dangerous, headlined by defending Selke-winner Patrice Bergeron and electrifying third-year players Brad Marchand...

The Bruins depth and number of returning skaters should allow them to coast to a Northeast title

After finishing first in the division last year with a 10 point lead over Ottawa is there any chance the Bruins fail to repeat as Northeast champs?
