Jordan Caron continues to be at home at the Garden

Rookie Jordan Caron admittedly hit a speedbump when the team was in Belfast. He got a bit of a pep-talk from Patrice Bergeron in Prague. He spent plenty of time on the road, and it’s hard to imagine he wasn’t champing at the bit to get back to the Garden.
Yes, back to the Garden. Don’t forget, the 19-year-old had a hat trick in the first of two rookie games against the Islanders back in September. He may not be as used to the Garden as the veterans, but he can certainly do some damage there. He proved in Thursday’s 4-1 win when he netted his second goal of the season, a tally in the second period that gave the B’s a 2-0 lead at the time.
“It feels great [to score at home],” Caron said after the game. “I told [Bergeron] on the bench, I think I was more happy tonight than for [my first career goal Saturday vs. the Devils]. From the crowd here, it was a great feeling again.”
Caron is still mastering English, with the emphasis on mastering. A Quebec native, Caron’s English has improved dramatically over the span of the last few months, though the language isn’t the only adjustment he’s dealing with. He, like Tyler Seguin, is getting used to a new league and a new group of fans. So far, he likes what he sees.
“It was great,” Caron said of the atmosphere in his first regular season game at TD Garden. “We had a great second period. We came out really strong and we put good pressure and I think the fans loved it. It was a fun game to play.”
As the adage goes, it’s fun when you’re winning, and the Bruins, riding a four-game win streak, are certainly having a lot of fun.
