Bruins Heading Home With Confidence, Two Points Following Strong Performance in Prague Finale The Bruins knew that they played a lackluster two periods in Saturday’s season opener, but a strong third period gave them momentum. That momentum carried over to Sunday’s final tilt in Europe.

The Bruins looked like a completely different team on Sunday afternoon in Prague where they bounced back from a 5-2 loss on Saturday to even the score with the Coyotes with a 3-0 win.

The B’s now head home to America with plenty of positives to draw from. Nathan Horton heads back with three goals to show for, but more importantly, he’s shown that he and linemates David Krejci and Milan Lucic could provide problems for opponents all year.

Rookie Tyler Seguin scored his first NHL goal on Sunday as well, another encouraging sign of things to come.

Most importantly, the B’s come home with two points.

“That flght’s a lot easier when you’ve got those two points in your pocket,” said Hall of Famer Brian Leetch on Sunday’s NESN Daily.
