Bruins Continue to Roll With Florida Sweep

Boston Bruins

Don’t look now but your Boston Bruins are in first place in the Eastern Conference (temporarily at least, Pittsburgh plays the Caps tonight with a chance to leap back in front). After stumbling out of the post-Olympic gate, the Black and Gold have rattled off five straight wins, including a pair of victories this weekend against the Lightning and Panthers respectively. And while their busy month of March continues with 11 games in 21 days remaining, the team is hitting its stride at just the right time with the playoffs around the corner. Let’s take a look at what is going right.

Bruins Get Back on Track, Add Depth At Deadline

Bruins Panthers

Interest in today’s trade deadline certainly peaked after the Boston Bruins dropped back to back games to – shall we say – sub-par opponents last week, but a offensive explosion against the Rangers on Sunday and a ‘take-care-of-business’ approach last night against the Florida Panthers have things looking up once again.

Post-Olympic Struggles Continue For Bruins

As successful as the five representatives of the Bruins were in this year’s Olympics, their return to Boston and NHL action has been anything but.

Alex Ovechkin scored his league-leading 42nd and 43rd goals for the Caps, while Patrice Bergeron and Shawn Thornton handled the tallies for the Bruins. Tuukka Rask took the loss with a 27 save effort.

Bruins Rally For Point But Can’t Shake Blues

Bruins Blues TJ Oshie

Given the state of the Boston Bruins blue line heading into last night’s game with the St. Louis Blues, you might’ve not been too surprised to see the B’s take a beating at the hands of one of the best teams in the Western Conference. But despite being without Zdeno Chara (Olympics) and sporting a defensive corps that included five players with a combined games played total less than Johnny Boychuk’s 297 career games, the Black and Gold rallied from a two goal third period deficit to earn a point before falling to the Blues in overtime, 3-2.
