WILMINGTON, Mass. -- With only three days remaining before the Boston Bruins host the New York Rangers in the season-opener at 7 p.m., Saturday night at TD Garden, Bruins coach Claude Julien increased his team’s practice work load Wednesday morning at Ristuccia Arena. Julien focused on net-front presence and battle drills during the hour-long session. The coach has been consistent keeping the practices short but intense.
