The Gazette’s Herb Zurkowsky writes that Canadiens defenceman Ryan O’Byrne made quite an impression during his NHL debut on Thursday night in Boston.
O’Byrne recorded two assists in 14:30 of ice time over 20 shifts. He also had two hits and blocked a shot.
"Things went pretty well," O’Byrne said Friday, after the team’s practice in Verdun. "I kept it simple. I got a couple of points, we got the win and I had some hits.
"Absolutely, I was nervous," he added. "Something’s wrong if you’re not nervous."
