Boston Bruins

Claude Julien confirms that Zdeno Chara's upper body injury will keep him out of the Bruins' season opener tonight against the Winnipeg Jets at TD Garden.
The Bruins will be more entertaining than last season but too many question marks have them headed for the same fate: out of the playoffs.
Second time should be a charm for the Lightning: After falling in the Stanley Cup Finals last year, they're Haggs' pick to win it all.
