The Bruins trip to Europe has done exactly what it set out to do — establish team chemistry. Now, they must convert that chemistry to playing at the NHL level, opening their season in less than 24 hours against the Phoenix Coyotes.
According to center David Krejci, the Bruins are ready for that step.
In part two of his interview with NESN's Naoko Funayama, Krejci said the chemistry has come along very well, especially with line mate Nathan Horton.
"The important part is to get along with him off the ice," Krejci said. "And he's the kind of guy that's really comfortable. If you didn't know he was the new guy, you'd think he was on the team for a long time. … I think me and Horton and [Milan] Lucic have played well together the past couple games."
