Bruins Scrimmage: Black Team Defeats White Team

The annual "Black and White" game was played tonight at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island and it featured all of the Boston Bruins remaining in camp. Team Black defeated Team White by a score of 4-1. Bruins second-round pick Alexander Khokhlachev scored two goals, beating two different goaltenders (Tuukka Rask in the first period and Michael Hutchinson in the third period).

A couple of minor injuries to touch upon in regards to tomorrow's first preseason game: Defenseman Joe Corvo suffered a lower body injury in tonight's game. It does not look to be major, although he did leave the game. Also, captain Zdeno Chara will not play tomorrow since he suffered a contusion in his knee after getting hit by a puck in Monday's practice.

For those of you who are eager to see the Bruins of last year back in action, you might have to wait a little bit longer. The preseason will feature line-ups consisting of rookies, draft picks, and newly signed free agents in order for the coaching staff to make final evaluations. David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton, Gregory Campbell, Brad Marchand, Johnny Boychuk, and Tim Thomas are not expected to play tomorrow.

Here is what the projected roster will look like for the first preseason game against the Ottawa Senators:

Benoit Pouliot-Patrice Bergeron-Jamie Tardif
Jordan Caron-Chris Kelly-Chris Clark
Max Sauve-Tyler Seguin-Jared Knight
Lane MacDermid-Ryan Spooner-Jamie Arniel/Shawn Thornton

Andrew Ference-Colby Cohen
Matt Bartkowski-Adam McQuaid
David Warsofsky-Dougie Hamilton/Steve Kampfer

Tuukka Rask
Anton Khudobin
