Torey Krug Nets First Goal Of Season For Bruins On Rocket From Blue Line


Torey Krug hasn’t contributed much in the offensive department this season, but that changed Thursday night.

The Boston Bruins defenseman finally lit the lamp in the first period of his team’s matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets at TD Garden. A nice exchange between Krug and center David Krejci set Krug up just inside the blue line, and the 25-year-old blasted a one-time slap shot on net for his first goal of the 2016-17 campaign.

Berkshire Bank Foundation

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Berkshire Bank Foundation will donate $100 for each Bruins assist to three local non-profit organizations. Click here to see official rules.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.

Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
