Last night the Bruins capped off their homestand with another win closing out their season series with the Chicago Blackhawks. What made it more delicious was that the Bruins never gave back their lead after attaining it, oh, and they scored six goals.
Secondary scoring has been the plague of the team all season but last night, members of the second line made some noise on the power play and at even strength. Jake DeBrusk scored his first goal in FOREVER last night. This was part of his monster three-point night.
Jake DeBrusk snaps a streak of 13 straight games without a goal.

His dad, Louie, was part of a Sportsnet broadcast last night when Jake helped out on the first goal.

Last week’s Second Star of the NHL, Patrice Bergeron, only had two points last night while his uninjured linemate Brad Marchand had four.

Not a bad night of hockey for Bruce Cassidy’s 100th win as head coach of the Boston Bruins. It wasn’t a given after the news of David Pastrnak’s thumb injury. In fact, no one knew what would happen tonight. The team stepped up in a huge way for the (two u’s, two k’s) two points.
Next up: The Ducks in Anaheim on Friday night.
