Carl Soderberg-Loui Eriksson Duo A Bright Spot In Bruins’ Loss To Avalanche

BOSTON — Not much has gone right offensively for the Bruins through four games of the 2014-15 season. The team has scored just four goals and only six players have tallied a point — Adam McQuaid is the only defenseman on the scoresheet. “Well, there’s no doubt we need better finish. But we just played a team on the other side that’s got a ton of it and they’ve scored...

David Krejci’s Goal Scoring Could Increase With Loui Eriksson On His Wing

BOSTON — Bruins center David Krejci’s high hockey IQ, patience with the puck and ability to deliver pinpoint passes make him a tremendous playmaker. One element of Krejci’s game that doesn’t get enough credit is his goal-scoring ability. The 28-year-old forward has been a pass-first player for most of his time with the B’s, primarily because he’s been centering goal-scoring...
