Bruce Cassidy Asks For Early Assertiveness, Energy From Young Bruins

The Boston Bruins have been troubled by slow starts this season, but that might have something to do with the team’s relatively young roster.

The B’s allowed two-first period goals to the Washington Capitals on Saturday, which proved to be the difference in their 3-2 loss at TD Garden.

After the game, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy noted his young players’ tendency to let the game develop rather than come out aggressive from the get-go. Moving forward, Cassidy expects more experience to help alleviate this issue.
