Bruins forward Brad Marchand joined the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday afternoon, one day after receiving his Stanley Cup championship ring. Marchand said the ring is too big to wear in public.

"I could barely fit it on my finger," he said. "I can't bend my finger when I have my ring on, it's so big. … If I was to wear it around all day my arm would get tired of carrying it. It will sit on a mantel."

According to a tweet from The Boston Globe's Fluto Shinzawa, the Bruins will not sign veteran forward Chris Clark, who had been in camp with the team on a tryout.

Clark, 35, had been skating as an extra forward on the fourth line with Shawn Thornton, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille. He served as the team's alternate captain in their final preseason game Saturday. 

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference made the first of his weekly appearances on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning.

With the Bruins coming off their first Stanley Cup championship since 1972, Ference was asked if he's concerned that the B's have become the team all others are targeting.

The Bruins received their Stanley Cup rings Tuesday night at the Boston Harbor hotel. The rings were made of 14 karat white gold, 35 custom cut Princess diamonds, 11 Princess cut diamonds, and 256 round diamonds. 

All members of last year's team, with the exception of Tomas Kaberle and Marc Savard, were on hand to pick up their rings. The group included former Bruins Mark Recchi, Michael Ryder and Shane Hnidy. 

Tyler Seguin wasn’t happy about his un-Seguin-like numbers of a year ago, and as the young forward enters his second season, he feels he’s had enough experience, invested enough time in the weight room and spent enough observation hours in the press box last season to turn in a sophomore campaig

Last fall, the Bruins went on the ultimate team-building trip, and by June, they'd had the ultimate season. This year featured no trip to Europe, but the B's hope that their team-building activities Sunday and Monday did the trick.

After the Bruins wrapped up their team-building trip to Great Diamond Island, Maine, coach Claude Julien said that he likes his team's mindset as the B's look to defend their Stanley Cup championship. 

"I don't think we're going to rest on our laurels, but it doesn't mean we can't look back on the past and work with the things that are going to help us get through this year," Julien said. "I think you've got to take what's important from last year and carry it over to this year."

The Bruins looked good through two periods Thursday, as they outshot the Senators, 30-10, in the game’s first 40 minutes and were leading, 1-0, thanks to a power play goal.
