It wasn't just fans who were excited to wake up to the news that the NHL was back yesterday. The players were as happy, if not happier than the fans.
Just look at the smile on Tyler Seguin's face in the video. You can tell he's excited and ready to go. But there is still a ways to go before the Bruins will be back on the ice. Some players have been holding informal skates and have amped those skates up to get ready. But full game fitness will take awhile for those who weren't playing competitive games.

"Yeah I don't think anybody expects him to be back at all," Ference said.
