Just when it seemed that all hope was lost, like our heroes were defeated, that we had lost too many in the Snappening/ Dusting/ Decimation…
the Bruins found a way to come back and win not one game but two this weekend.
First up, they soundly beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in a scrappy, chippy game that saw three fights, a flagrantly late blindside hit, and Matt Grzelcyk get 30 minutes in penalties.
That late hit by Zach Hyman on Charlie McAvoy resulted in a two-game suspension.

Toronto’s Zach Hyman has been suspended for two games for interference on Boston’s Charlie McAvoy. https://t.co/1qvBURr6sM

In between all this other action, the Bruins managed to score 6 goals (JFK, Backes, Krug, Heinen, Krejci, Donato) while only allowing three. We’ll take a resounding quota win!
Next up, a game with only 18 hours of turnaround. The Bruins took on the Tootsies in Ottawa and skated away with a win in OT on a goal from Torey Krug. Krug scored his first and second goals of the season in back-to-back games.

Oh and Tuukka Rask was pretty good, too, allowing only one goal.
The Bruins handily won the game they had no business winning and squeaked by, albeit on a back-to-back weekend, playing this team, playing the beautiful game.
