BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Ryan Spooner scored twice to lead the Boston Bruins to a 6-1 victory over the New York Islanders in a preseason game Friday night.
Reilly Smith scored in his preseason debut for Boston after signing on Monday, and Carl Soderberg, Seth Griffith and Daniel Paille also scored for the Bruins (3-2-1). Malcolm Subban made 32 saves.
David Pastrnak, the Bruins’ top draft pick in June coming back from injury, played his first NHL preseason game and assisted on Paille’s third-period goal.
Kyle Okposo scored for the Islanders (4-2-1) in their preseason finale.
Second-year Islanders forward Brock Nelson missed the second half of the second period after a hit from Kevan Miller. Miller received a boarding major and game misconduct, and Okposo scored during the ensuing power play.
