What we learned: Bruins find standout outings despite lack of finish

A handful of Boston Bruins had a chance to make an initial impression during their preseason opener against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Indeed, the Bruins had garnered a handful of quality chances against Philadelphia’s goaltending tandem of Felix Sandstrom and Troy Grosenick. But Saturday’s mix of younger prospects and veterans hoping to make a roster spot struggled to light the lamp for most of their first exhibition of the year.

The Bruins didn’t waver, however, and finally found the back of the net on a Jakub Lauko wrist shot from the slot to even things up at 12:50 of the final frame.
