The Boston Bruins are on a roll!
One point out of 1st place, four wins in a row…
Bruce Cassidy north of a .700 win percentage behind the B’a bench since replacing Claude Julien one year ago this week.
Patrice Bergeron on pace to set a career-best for goals at age 32.
Tuukka Rask on a 21-game points streak, not having lost in regulation since late Nov.
Young Guns Charlie McAvoy, Danton Heinen, Jake DeBrusk, Austin Czarnik all making key contributions.
Brad Marchand back from his 5-game ban & doing Marchy-like things in his team’s 6-1 pumping of the NY Rangers.
More prospects in the pipeline & on the way up through the ranks…and much, much more that we didn’t just rattle off to help the Bruins climb to the elite ranks this season.
Yep- just the way we all drew it up over the summer, right B’s fans?
Credit where due to those who saw it coming, but even as encouraging as it is, the B’s need a long postseason going to keep the goodwill flowing. Given how it all ended with the New England Patriots, we all could use a little milk & honey Black & Gold style.
So, buckle up and enjoy the ride- it’s hip to get behind the Bruins again. Even if so many out there never left.
