YOUNG DEFENSE: Knowing they had talented young defensemen, the Bruins let 13-year veteran Andrew Ference leave for Calgary as a free agent. Dougie Hamilton, 20, Torey Krug, 22, and Matt Bartkowski, 25, all could play more on a solid backline that includes veterans Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Johnny Boychuk and Adam McQuaid. With Rask, 26, coming off an outstanding first season away from former teammate Tim Thomas, the Bruins could be just as stingy as last season when they allowed 109 goals, third fewest in the NHL.
