The Boston Bruins notched their second win of the season in a triumphant matchup against the Nashville Predators at TD Garden. The victory hinged on a stellar defensive performance, with enthusiastic fan support amplifying the team's efforts.

In the first two periods, the Predators enjoyed eight power-play opportunities, but the Bruins impressively thwarted seven of them. Although Nashville did score once, the Bruins responded with a power-play goal in the ensuing period. Head coach Jim Montgomery emphasized the role of this penalty kill in generating momentum.

Montgomery stated,
"We're gaining tremendous momentum. Our knowledgeable fans recognized the remarkable effort, blocked shots, and crucial saves made by our top penalty killer, Jeremy Swayman. The ovation at the end of one of those kills significantly elevated our bench."

While accumulating penalties isn't a winning strategy, the Bruins' ability to overcome early-season adversity reflects their resilience and determination.

James van Riemsdyk found the net twice as a Bruin, reaching a career total of 302 goals, bolstering the team's power-play unit.

Trent Frederic celebrated his 200th game on the ice, and a successful penalty shot by David Pastrnak marked a noteworthy moment for the Bruins.
