**** yeah! It's hockey season!

After 2,637 hours of hockeyless summertime, the long wait is over.

The preseason began in earnest for the Boston Bruins as they smacked around the Canadiens last night to the tune of 8-3. Of course, the score is irrelevant, as are most of the events in any preseason game, but here are our takeaways for the night:

1) Patrice Bergeron was on fire, ripping off a goal and three assists. Bergy was not in midseason form, but looked pretty good for a guy who missed a whole season with a wonky brain. Mark off another step in his road to recovery.

2) Manny Fernandez, engaged in a tight competition for the starting-goalie duties, allowed 2 goals on 12 shots.

3) Not only did the Bruins light up the Habs on the scoreboard, they filled the fight card as well.

Shawn Thornton on Steve Begin:

Andrew Ference also pummeled Andrei Kostitsyn -- if anyone has a vid link, throw it this way.

The Bruins visit the Islanders tonight -- preseason rematch with the Habs is on October 1st... ye gads, only a couple of nights before the regular season begins!
