No Patrice Bergeron. No problem for the Boston Bruins. At least on opening night in the NHL. Brad Marchard skated circles around the Columbus Blue Jackets and had five points in a 6-3 B's win.

In fact, the Bruins came back from an early 2-0 hole to get the victory.

The line of Marchard-Backes-Pastrnak could not be stopped. Along with Marchand's five points, Pastrnak had two goals and two assists and Backes had two goals and an assist in his first game as a Bruin.

Goalie Tuukka Rask made 28 saves.

Bergeron is out with a lower body injury that is being called 'not serious'.

Game two of the season - tomorrow night against Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
