The Boston Bruins controlled play in Saturday’s home opener against the New Jersey Devils, ultimately coming away with a 3-0 win.

Sean Kuraly told reporters postgame that he and his teammates just “kept it simple” from the get-go. Boston got out to a good start, and let the game run its course from there. Brad Marchand emphasized the solid start.

“It’s a lot easier to play with the lead,” Marchand noted in his postgame media availability. “It was great to get a couple goals there early and protect ourselves a bit.”
