The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, Vol III: Bruins Hockey from 11/5-11/11/16

Just some more Monday morning musings about our team…

Nice to see there is more under the “good” section now than there is in the “bad”, or the “ugly”.


  • Tuukka Rask continues to shine, notching wins against the Sabres and the Blue Jackets. He was 8-1-0 through November 11 (currently 10-1-0).
  • Team defense has most definitely improved. “Team defense” refers to the forwards’ defensive play, as well.
  • Austin Czarnik is the little engine that could. He doesn’t stop moving, and has brought a refreshing burst of energy to the bottom six.
  • While it seems prudent to stop short of saying he’s played a few good games, but Jimmy Hayes has definitely had a good week. Perhaps the fourth line is where he belongs – not that Schaller, Moore and Acciari have made the case for their dynamic trio to be split up.
  • Crazy Eights is a stud; an absolute star. Through November 11, David Pastrnak scored 9 goals. He’s at 10 after the weekend, but we’ve got to stick to the schedule, here.
  • David Krejci and Torey Krug are officially back in the lineup, and you don’t even have to look for them – they’ve returned to form for sure.
  • Ryan Spooner is clearly becoming more comfortable on the wing.
  • Despite coming up short, the Bruins played a great game against the Habs.

  • THE BAD:

  • Despite playing a great game against the Habs, the Bruins came up short. Again. Just can’t catch a break.

  • Rask is having a great season thus far, but it seems rather odd that the Bruins have played the Habs twice this season, and Rask hasn’t played either game.
  • Colin Miller makes silly decisions sometimes, which leads to…


  • Colin Miller’s own goal. Yikes.
  • Habs captain Max Pacioretty was hit in the face by a Shea Weber shot. This is not about the Bruins and it actually happened on 11/13, but we’re going to see a lot more of his ugly face now, so it seemed important to prepare everyone..
