Craig Smith is eager to get going in his second year with the Boston Bruins.
Analysis: "We're excited to do something special," said Smith on Monday following a captain's practice. "I think if I was sitting here telling you we weren't gonna do something special, there'd be something wrong. I'm extremely excited with this group. Coming off of last year, there's definitely something to prove. It's just Day 1 here. Everybody's back for the most part and everybody was working, everybody's on the ice trying to get to know each other best they can with the short time we have here before the season. It's exciting. You can feel the energy in the room...everyone is extremely motivated to prove something this year." Smith had success as a top-six forward with the Bruins last season, while contributing 13 goals and 32 points in 54 games.
