What’s better than a Bruins-Habs “friendly” matchup?

The Bruins went through their pregame paces this morning, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, preparing for tonight’s game between the rivals.

Above are a few scenes from morning skate…

1) First off, Gregory Campbell firing pucks at the boards while waiting to jump into his faceoff rounds with Assistant Coach Doug Jarvis.

(During skate, I usually watch rushes, before roaming a bit to try and get photos. No. 11 may or may not have been [he was] nonchalantly firing the shots because I had the phone camera in the first row, literally pushed right up against the glass. Hey, it made for this great photo of the Merlot Liner.)

2 and 3) The Bell Centre has to be one of my favorite road arenas. The history in the rafters, the red seats that welcome us every time we arrive at the empty, quiet rink. And the atmosphere that fills the seats come game-time. Away from the Garden, this is one of the best.

4) Assistant Coach Doug Jarvis dropping pucks for faceoff practice with David Krejci and the Bruins’ centermen. There’s a reason that Boston has been a dominant team in faceoffs season after season. Patrice Bergeron always helps their statistics, but “Jarvy” (the ultimate NHL ironman in his playing days with Montreal) leads the charge.

5) Shawn Thornton heading out onto the ice for pregame stick (stick tap to our video producer who captured this great shot).

6) Center-ice stretch to wrap up skate. The Bruins seemed undecided as to who to force into the middle to lead the stretch, until sending Quebec native Jordan Caron in.

7) Big Zee making his warmup rounds.

8) Patrice Bergeron speaking with reporters pregame. It’s always two “media scrums” for Bergy in Montreal, with the first go-round in French, followed by a round of the often same questions in Engligh.

9) Same goes for Coach Julien. Montreal is often the largest media contingent we encounter on the road, with the bilingual scrums for both Julien and Bergeron.

Caron Comfortable in Debut

BOSTON, MA – Jordan Caron made the most of his season debut in the Black & Gold on Saturday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers. The big winger (6-foot-3, 204 pounds) stepped in on the third line and played very well in 13:45 of ice time, registering a nifty assist on Chris Kelly’s first period goal.

The line of Kelly, Caron and Rich Peverley seemed to have a bit more jump in the B’s 3-0 victory at TD Garden, and Caron was happy to be able to contribute in his first game back with the Big Club.

Caron Joins B's, Skating on Third Line

WILMINGTON, MA - Forward Jordan Caron didn’t have the best luck to start the season, suffering injuries that kept him from training camp, and from his opportunity to challenge for a spot on the Boston roster in the third and final year of his entry-level contract.

But on Friday, Caron finally got his chance, when he was recalled by the big club from Providence.

Talking Chemistry & Consistency With Caron

Development remains the name of the game in the American Hockey League, but as the season enters December and with the Providence Bruins fighting to climb out of fifth place in the Atlantic Division (and a 7-8-1 record), the P-Bruins will have to rely on veterans like Jordan Caron to remind teammates what exactly is at stake each time they hit the ice.

Caron Sparks Turnaround

After proclaiming themselves ready to put together a good start to the 2012-13 season, but then dropping their first two games of the year, the Providence Bruins were bound and determined to reboot the program as they bussed through New Hampshire and Western Mass last weekend.

Growing Together

Jordan Caron has already played 71 regular season NHL games (not to mention two Stanley Cup playoff games). But as the P-Bruins donned their practice gear and went through their paces on September 28, Caron looked over the RI Sports Center and pronounced himself happy to be on the ice.
