The Boston Bruins finally snapped out of their funk with a 4-3 win against the Dallas Stars last night. 

A big part of the win was one of the Bruins recent acquisitions in Nick Ritchie. 

After looking a little out of it in his Bruins debut, head coach Bruce Cassidy bumped him up to the second line where he could play with his former Ducks' teammate, Ondrej Kase.

The result?


A goal and an assist for Ritchie and after the game Cassidy had quite the praise for the 6'2 230lb winger. 

"I think Nick was much better than the other night, a little more into the game," Cassidy said. "Puck was finding him. We knew that would happen. I just thought it was unfair the other night. Fly in, a lot of newness going on. He's had a couple days to acclimate a little bit. I'm not going to say he's going to get two points every night. But he'll probably be somewhere in between there. That's what we expect out of him. Bigger body, especially in this type of game. They're a heavy team, and they finish checks. You've got to work to get to the net. I thought he did a real good job with that."

What do you think of Cassidy's comments?
