Ian Clark's Bruins Notebook: B's Spooner aims for consistency
Such is the case for Boston Bruins prospect Ryan Spooner, who played against the Manchester Monarchs with the Providence Bruins at Verizon Wireless Arena Saturday night.
"I think for the first time this year I felt really comfortable. I wasn't really nervous with the puck at all. I just wanted to make my plays," Spooner said. "I thought I had a good camp. Whenever you can be up there and learn from all the guys that play up there, it's a good thing."
"I've had a couple games I haven't done the best in. But I've had some I played well in," Spooner said. "Right now I think I just need to focus on being more consistent game in and game out and go from there."
"Faceoffs is one thing. They told me to work on those. I struggled with that a little in the exhibition games," he said. "They said just keep playing the way I am, use my speed and create plays and try to round out my game. I've had a couple games where I struggled and others where I've been good so I just need to focus game in and game out. I'm just trying to improve my game and if I get called up there I'll just perform."
PENGUINS SKATE IN : The Monarchs will host the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins today at 3 p.m. at the Verizon. The Penguins entered play against Worcester Saturday night with a 4-0-0 record.
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton also brings to town two former Monarchs in goaltender Peter Mannino, who was with Manchester last season, and forward Tom Kostopoulos, who played in Manchester in 2004-5. He has played in 630 NHL games over a 14-year pro career.
