Andrej Meszaros made his Boston debut Sunday against Florida.

He scored a power-play goal and registered six shots, while seeing 20:36 of ice time in a 5-2 victory for the Bruins. "It was good to go out there and play. Overall, I felt pretty good and the two points is huge," Meszaros said. He was a healthy scratch for two straight games after he was acquired from Philadelphia, but more performances like this will earn him plenty of action.

Andrej Meszaros participated in his first full Bruins' practice Friday.

That said, there is a good chance he will be a healthy scratch again Saturday against the Lightning as Boston coach Claude Julien seemed very pleased with the six rearguards he dressed for Thursday's 3-0 win over Washington. Corey Potter, who was also recently added to the Bruins' roster, may also sit in the press box. "It's pretty apparent to me now that there is competition back there," Julien said. "We've got to give those guys an opportunity to feel their way into this team. There is an opportunity for us to get to know them and them to get to know us. That's where we are right now". We would keep Mezaros on reserve until he plays in a game.

Andrej Meszaros was a healthy scratch for Thursday's win against Washington.

Boston acquired Meszaros from Philadelphia before the trade deadline and they claimed Corey Potter off waivers Edmonton, but neither of them dressed. The Bruins have won three straight games, so changing their lineup right now isn't a priority.

Andrej Meszaros is looking forward to a fresh start in Boston after being scratched several times and battling through injuries during his tenure with the Philadelphia Flyers this season.

"It was tough with the injuries, but being healthy this year and not playing was really tough," Meszaros said. "Now I feel strong and I feel pretty good. I can skate pretty good and join the rush and obviously have to be good defensively because defense is first, and then the offense will come obviously and hopefully I can help the guys up front and score some goals." Knowing former Ottawa teammates Zdeno Chara and Chris Kelly should help him out in the locker room as well. Meszaros was acquired to add some depth to Boston's back end at the trade deadline.

Andrej Meszaros has been traded to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a third-round pick.

The Bruins were in the market for a veteran defenseman and they have found one in Meszaros. He has five goals and 17 points in 38 games with the Flyers. Boston wanted to add some depth with Dennis Seidenberg out for the season and Adam McQuaid ailing with a core injury.
