The Boston Bruins have been coming together and getting the job done with a huge win over Tampa Bay Lightning. The Bruins went on to win that game 2-1 in regulation with goals scored by Brad Marchand and Jake Debrusk. Marchand was originally a game time decision due to being under the weather, but I guess you could say it was a good thing he was in.
The Bruins continue their road trip as they make their way “down the street” to Sunrise, Florida to face the Panthers. Its another division match-up so for the Bruins it could give them a bigger lead in the Atlantic and get them closer to the 100 Point mark. The Panthers are already in the four slot for the division, but Montreal is not that far away from them. With the playoffs just on the horizon, points and winning will start to matter.
With just a few months left of the season and playoffs, it shouldn’t go unnoticed that Patrice Bergeron, and Tuukka Rask deserve to be finalists for some silverware. With Tuukka having a great season as far as his numbers go, there’s no reason why he shouldn’t have his name thrown in for the Vezina trophy. This season he has a record of 25 Wins / 13 Loses (Including Overtime) with a .928 Save Percentage. Patrice Bergeron was out for a good chunk of the season as he was battling his injuries back in November but when he came back, it was a refreshed Bergeron. Since coming back he scored 21 Goals / 13 Assists. It may not seem like huge numbers but it should be enough to achieve the Selke Trophy.
