The Boston Bruins conclude a week of centennial celebrations with a much-anticipated face-off against the Nashville Predators at TD Garden.

This season commenced with an impressive 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks, witnessed by the franchise's storied legends. Notably, the "All-Centennial" team was revealed on Thursday, featuring current players Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak.

While the season promises more centennial festivities, Saturday's game signifies a return to routine for the Black and Gold.

Defenseman Matt Grzelcyk acknowledged the significance of the season opener, saying, "There's a lot at stake, but we're up against a tough opponent that's had a strong start this year."


The Nashville Predators, already with two games under their belt, experienced a loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in their season opener on Tuesday but rebounded with a shutout win over the Seattle Kraken in their home opener on Thursday.

The Bruins aim to secure a second consecutive victory and build momentum with Jeremy Swayman tending the net before a well-deserved four-day break.
