In the Boston Bruins first game of the season, their new pieces seemed to fit right in for them in a 3-1 win.

Jarome Iginla, one of the newcomers, played well in his first game in a Boston uniform and even got a five minute major for fighting when he dropped the gloves with Tampa Bay Lightning’s Radko Gudas.

Michael Felger and Tony Amonte discussed on PostGame Live how Iginla played in his first game with the Bruins.

“Iggy is a competitor, he battles hard every night,” Amonte said. “He is going to get in there and he is going to be in guys faces. He is a prototypical Boston Bruin player. That’s why he fits in so great here.”

Felger and Amonte also talked about Loui Eriksson, and even though he didn’t fill up the stat sheet tonight, what his role will be for the rest of the season.

“I think Eriksson is a good offensive player, he made some nice plays tonight,” Amonte said. “I don’t think he is as quick as a Tyler Seguin, but I think offensively, he is not going to hurt the Bruins. He is going to put some points on the board. I like the changes they made. I think the Bruins are a better team today than they were two months ago.”
