Tomas Kaberle arrived from the Ottawa airport an hour before the game, jumped into a set of Bruins gear jury-rigged for him by the team equipment guys, and 20 minutes later was on the ice with his new team.

"Sometimes that's the best way to do it," said Kaberle, after playing 19:34 in the B's 4-2 win against the Senators. "It was a long day, obviously, busy. I found out after (Maple Leafs) practice that I was moved. It was emotional. I'm happy I played the first game for Boston and we got two points.

"The guys were great to me. Good atmosphere and a big win. A lot of mixed emotion day for me after 13 years in Toronto. It's not easy to swallow, but I've got no regrets. I've done my best for that team. Hopefully the fans were happy about it. Now I have to move on and just wish them good luck."
