The Boston Bruins recovered from their season-opening loss to the Phoenix Coyotes with a 3-0 victory in Prague on Sunday.
Nathan Horton and Tim Thomas sparked the B’s past the Coyotes as the black and gold were firing out-of-the gates with an aggressive style of play that netted them a 37-29 shot advantage. Horton had a goal and an assist as the 25-year-old is making a good first impression with the Bruins after playing fro the Florda Panters last season.
Milan Lucic scored halfway through the second period to put Boston on the board as the Bruins peppered Coyote goalie Ilya Bryzgalov early and often. Tim Thomas registered his first shutout of the season in his first contest, as the former Vezina Trophy winner looked sharp between the pipes with 29 saves.
The Bruins head to New Jersey to face the Devils on Saturday for their first game of the season back in the States.
