Spooner fed nice spot between Horton, Lucic
WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Bruins center David Krejci (bruised right knee) did not play last night against the Jets, and rookie Ryan Spooner was thrown into the fire. He took Krejci’s spot on the line with Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton.
And though it was a tough night for the B’s, who squandered a third-period lead and lost, 3-1, Spooner looked comfortable on both sides of the puck. He played 15:29, had two shots and won half of his eight faceoffs. He looked like a kid with an NHL future.
