Wednesday night marked a few firsts for the Boston Bruins. Most importantly they won their first game, but it was also worth noting the NHL debuts of Tommy Cross and Tyler Randell. Both players are Bruins draft picks, Cross in 2007 and Randell in 2009. Cross of course played his college hockey at BC and was a standout player especially defensively. He played parts of four seasons in Providence. Randell has played in the minor leagues his whole career, and finally has cracked the Bruins lineup this season. Both players are getting long looks because the B’s see both of them as future contributors. Wednesday night in Colorado, the two made their debuts in a 6-2 Boston victory with Randell scoring a goal and Cross recording 13:50 of total ice time. Look for both these guys to play quite a bit this season as the Black and Gold are trying to integrate more younger players.
