You know what? The Bruins are officially on a slide. earlier this season, they endured a four-game losing streak and right now they’re riding a three-game losing streak, with only two of those within regulation. Last night in Ottawa, the Bruins looked so bad that I accidentally called them “The Brians”. Basically based upon how they’re playing lately, I wouldn’t be surprised if each player were replaced by their identical twin, each of them named Brian.
Can you tell the difference between Patrice and his twin brother, Brian? I didn’t think so. The only way you can tell them apart is that Patrice can play hockey and Brian cannot.
Anyway, I’m not going to recap last night’s game because it was a phenomenal waste of time. Just know that the Brians allowed a fourth goal, a short-handed effort from Jean-Gabriel “Don’t Call Me JG” Pageau, before they scored their second late in the third period.
This is going to be a very long week of games if the Brians show up for each game instead of the Bruins.
