Boston Takes Down Tampa Bay, Winning Streak Comes To Life. Onto Florida Panthers

1a18f11f-1325-4682-9158-8ced39373a31-844-00000037cbf461d4

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.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Jarolsav, Halak- GAA 2.44 / SV%.917 (17W/ 6L/ 6OTL)

Florida– Chris, Driedger- GAA 2.35 / SV%.932 (5W/ 2L)

Tonight’s Game: 7PM- BB&T Center- Sunrise, Florida

Bruins Stay On The Road: Longtrip To Tampa Bay

31f3e8f1-01d2-47a6-b902-e9777d953e49-55223-00000f5b61a93fc0

The Boston Bruins look to stay in the win column with a victory over the New York Islanders. The Bruins went on to win that game last Saturday with a score of 4-0 in regulation. Goals from David Pastrnak, Charlie Coyle, Brand Marchand, and Matt Grezlcyk got the win but most importantly Tuukka Rask got the shutout. 

The top two teams of the Atlantic go head to head tonight as the Boston Bruins make way to Tampa Bay. The Bruins have a 7 point lead over the Lightning, and has the better last 10 record. Granted the Boston Bruins have a 7 point lead but the Tampa Bay Lightning is not a team you sleep on. The Lightning have been a very competitive team, and with stars like Steven Stamkos, Victor Hedman, and Nikita Kucherov.

Brad Marchand will be a game time decision in tonight’s game due to being under the weather. The veteran winger did not participate in the morning skate, but don’t fully rule him out. If Marchand is scratched from tonight’s game, that’s not an issue at all. Chris Wagner will be returning to the line up after suffering an apparent upper body injury, and participated in both morning skates Monday and Tuesday.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.16 / SV%.928 (24W/ 7L/ 6OTL)

Tampa Bay– Andrei, Vasilevskiy- GAA 2.62 / SV%.914 (33W/ 12L/ 3OTL)

d1f85590-66c6-47cf-b629-22b8476b5bac-46270-00000ca7adecbe84

The Boston Bruins lost last Tuesday night to the Calgary Flames 5-2 in regulation. This is the second straight lost for the Boston Bruins and while still leading the Atlantic Division, the Tampa Bay Lightning aren’t you far behind.

The Bruins will host the Dallas Stars (37-20-6) tonight at the TD Garden. The Dallas Stars on a two game winning streak as they defeated the Chicago Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes. The Stars are just 7-2-1 in their last two games.

With the NHL in a bit of a tight spot, the league looks to possibly getting rid of the emergency goalie policy. Just recently, Toronto Maple Leafs zamboni driver David Ayres (42) was needed to goal tend for the Carolina Hurricanes and ended up winning. Why does the NHL frown upon this?

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Jaroslav, Halak- GAA 2.42 / SV%.918 (16W/ 6L/ 6OTL)

The Boston Bruins got dominated by the Vancouver Canucks 9-3 in regulation. Despite the Bruins losing, David Pastrnak notches two more goals to his list to make it 45 and remains leading the NHL. Perhaps one of the worst games played this season, hopefully the Bruins can bounce back at home.

NHL-CANUCKS-BRUINS

The Boston Bruins continue to stay hot on the road as they come out of Calgary is a hard fought battle. The Bruins beat the Flames 4-3 in regulation but it was not easy as most of the goals scored came from the 1st period.

Four goals scored for the Bruins came off of the sticks of three different players (Patrice Bergeron x2, Brad Marchand, and Charlie Coyle. As the Bruins stay hot it seems to help them continue their motivation and momentum.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.04 / SV%.932 (23W/ 5L/ 6OTL)

The Boston Bruins ended up winning in overtime against the Edmonton Oilers, with the winning goal coming off of the stick of David Pastrnak. On top of the winning goal, the first goal scored for the Bruins came from Patrice Bergeron.

With David Backes not being in the line up and just remaining on the bench it seems that he has found a new home. The Boston Bruins today traded the veteran winger, Prospect Axel Anderson, and a 2020 First Round Draft pick for Anaheim Ducks Ondrej Kase.

Ondrej Kase brings to the Bruins 7 Goals and 16 Assists. Ondrej has experienced some illness as he was listed day to day. He won’t be making the trip with his new Boston team but I’m sure he will make his appearance in no time.

The Bruins head to Calgary to continue their road trip in Canada. The Flames are coming off of a one game win compared to the Bruins who have won four straight and have dominated their last ten games (9-1-0).

Starting Goalies:

The Boston Bruins continue their winning streak by domination the New York Rangers in regulation. Goals from Patrice Bergeron, Charlie Coyle, and Charlie McAovy secured the third straight win, along with Jarolslav Halak only allowing one goal.

The Bruins (37-11-12) will travel to Edmonton, Canada to face the Oilers (32-21-6). The last time these two teams met was at the beginning of the year, and the Oilers absolutely dominated by taking down the Bruins 4-1 in regulation. As both teams are coming off of a win (Bruins Over Rangers / Oilers over Hurricanes) only one team will keep their streak alive.

Boston Gets Revenge Over Detroit: Original Six Match-Up, New York Rangers

Bruins

The Boston Bruins get their revenge over the Detroit Red Wings in regulation as they went on to win 4-1. The Bruins really got the monkey off their back getting this win only because the Red Wings went on to get the victory last Sunday.

The Bruins make the trip to New York City to face the New York Rangers (30-23-4). The last time these two teams have faced off was back in last year (11/29) where the Bruins came out on top in overtime 3-2. The Rangers are coming into the face off with a four game wining streak, as the Bruins are coming in with only two.

As far as leading the league, for the first time this season David Pastrnak shares the top of goals with Toronto Maple Leafs, Auston Matthews. Both players are tied at 42 goals. On top of goals scored what about the other end of the ice? Tuukka Rask currently leads the NHL with a Goals Against Average of 2.08 and a Save Percentage of .931.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Jaroslav, Halak- GAA 2.36 / SV%.921 (14W/ 6L/ 6OTL)

Dominate Performance Over Montreal, Another Match-Up With Detroit.

587244c0-543c-4ce4-ab10-78dd016f34f1-1054-0000005b49c4812a

The Boston Bruins (35-11-12) took own the Montreal Canadiens (27-26-7) in regulation. The highlight of that game was David Pastrnak getting the hat-trick. For Pastrnak it was his 4th of the season an his 8th in his career. On top of Pastrnak’s three goals, Patrice Bergeron scored one of his own, Brad Marchand earned two assists, an Sean Kuraly getting an assist.

The last time the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings (14-41-4) faced off it don’t go as planned for the Bruins. The top team in the Atlantic (Boston), lost to the worst team in the NHL (Detroit). As far as sports betting I am almost positive there was some money lost. Let’s hope after some serious studying the Boston Bruins can figure out how to beat them this time.

Jeremy Lauzon looks to remain a Boston Bruins after signing a two-year contract that is worth about $1.7 Million. The young defenseman will be coming off of a two game suspension for a gnarly hit on Derek Stephan. With Lauzon signed, the Bruins have Matthew Grzelcyk, Jake DeBrusk, Karson Kuhlman and Anders Bjork among the remaining RFAs this summer.


Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.11 / SV%.930 (21W/ 5L/ 6OTL)
