BOSTON - Now in his 10th NHL season, Chris Kelly doesnt get goose bumps the way he used to. KeiVarae Russell Jersey .But the Boston Bruins forward confessed to a bit of insomnia as he prepared for opening night against the Philadelphia Flyers.The home opener is always enjoyable, Kelly said after scoring the game-winner in Bostons 2-1 victory over the Flyers on Wednesday night. I didnt get any sleep. I was excited. It felt good, especially for the first home game.Kelly scored the tiebreaker with 1:51 left in the third period, and Tuukka Rask made 21 saves to help the Bruins win their third consecutive season opener. Reilly Smith also scored for Boston, which finished with the best record in the NHL last season but couldnt get past the second round of the playoffs.Sean Couturier scored for Philadelphia, and Steve Mason stopped 31 shots.It was 1-all when Mason deflected Adam McQuaids slap shot from the blue line into the air. The puck came down in the crease, and Kelly swiped it in while Bostons Loui Eriksson also had a shot at it.I just wanted to go out there and feel good and enjoy it, said Kelly, who missed the playoffs last year with a herniated disk. Last year was taken away from me and made me realize how much I missed the game and want to be out there playing. I just tried to enjoy the whole night and tried to play my game. For sure, theres no better feeling.Another sellout, the 214th in a row, filled the TD Garden. But the crowd seemed to be still getting over last seasons playoff loss to the rival Montreal Canadiens by a Boston team that had reached the Stanley Cup finals in 2013 and then totalled 114 points in 2013-14.During the off-season, the Bruins lost Jarome Iginla a€” their leading goal-scorer from last season a€” and Shawn Thornton, and last week defenceman Johnny Boychuk was traded to the New York Islanders.The Flyers are in their 40th season since back-to-back Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and 75.They always have a solid team. No matter who is in their lineup, they play the exact same way, said Philadelphia forward Wayne Simmonds. We were a little bit jittery for probably the first period and a half, and it cost us.The Bruins scored on a power play at 10:39 of the first when Carl Soderberg muscled around the back of the net and then passed across to Smith.It stayed 1-0 until 4 minutes into the third, when the Flyers put some pressure on Rask and finally beat him. Jakub Voracek came out from behind the net and whipped the puck across to Couturier, who deflected it in.Bostons Bobby Robins, 32, played in his first NHL game. He had played 499 games in the U.S. minor leagues and in Europe after going to college at UMass-Lowell.It was awesome, said Robins, whose wife and 11-month-old daughter, Libby, were in the stands. After nine years to have that happen was a dream come true, and to play here at the Garden ... it was a very special feeling; Ill never forget it.He also got into his first fight, tangling with Luke Schenn in the second period.I know the brand of hockey these Boston fans like, and I just hope to be able to provide that. And to get that kind of reception was a great feeling, said Robins, who chatted with Schenn in the penalty box. He was asking if it was my first NHL game. So, I said, Yeah. He just said, Good fight a€” the normal stuff guys say after a fight.NOTES: Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux, who returned earlier than expected from an unspecified training camp injury, played the most shifts and the most ice time of any Flyers forward. He was 4 for 21 on faceoffs, including 2 for 12 against Patrice Bergeron. ... The game ended with the Bruins due to be assessed a penalty. Brad Marchand elbowed Schenn, but the Flyers never gave up the puck before the horn. ... Pierre-Edouard Bellemare made his NHL debut for Philadelphia. Joe Mixon Jersey . On Thursday, a judge said Varlamov could be released if he posted $5,000 bond and be allowed to travel with the team but he was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, among other restrictions. Boomer Esiason Jersey . The hard-serving 22-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., became the first Canadian to be ranked in the Top 10 on the ATP World Tour thanks to his runner-up performance at Rogers Cup in Montreal. . And it showed Thursday night. The Canadiens, playing in their second game in as many days, however, got a good performance in the end from their backup goaltender as he filled in for an injured Olympic gold medallist .WINNIPEG - The players want him back and he wants to come back but head coach Paul Maurice says no decision has been made about whether he will return to the Winnipeg Jets next season. Maurice was brought in mid-season when Claude Noel was sacked by the slumping Jets, who just finished out of the playoffs for the third straight season in Winnipeg and seventh straight for the former Atlanta franchise. They played better after the coaching change but still finished exactly where they did in their first season under Noel in their new home, with 84 points. Darqueze Dennard Jersey. Maurice says he wants to return as head coach but his family comes first and they must share in his decision. Jets captain Andrew Ladd says the players want him back as well. Ladd says he believes they can continue to develop and find more of the consistency they showed in the last half of this season.
