The B's are in the new Atlantic Division, and their new divisional opponents are the Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers and Detroit Red Wings.
As mentioned earlier, both of their wins have come against new divisional foes.
The B's opened up the year with a 3-1 win over Tampa Bay and followed with a 4-1 drubbing of Detroit.
Because the Bruins are opening the year with three straight home games, it is important to take advantage of not having to travel. So far, they have held serve in Beantown.
Detroit figures to be the stiffest competition among the new opponents, and while it is only one win, the B's can take confidence from it, especially because of how well their power play performed against a solid team coached by Mike Babcock.
The Bruins' next divisional game is Monday, Oct. 14 against Detroit (at home again). Their first road test comes three days later in South Florida against old netminder Tim Thomas and the Panthers.
