Last night was the second and last game of the Bruins Moms Trip. Like the one in Nashville, the Bruins won this one, perhaps not as handily. Entering the third period, it wasn’t a given that the team would win seeing that they had traded the lead late in the second after playing catch up with goals throughout the game. Continue reading

It was a quiet day yesterday for the Bruins with not much being posted except for Bruins mom content. That’s fine, not every day is chock full of news or activity. Let the guys spend some quality time with the women who cared and nurtured them.

Sure that score was inflated by an empty net goal, but when two players not named McDavid or Draisaitl are responsible for the tying and go-ahead goals, that means you’ve allowed players that don’t usually factor into the score sheet win the game, Bruins.

Watching the Boston Bruins is an exercise in frustration. Remember when it used to be fun? How about when they would take one or two periods off then flip the switch and win the game? It seems so long ago. Continue reading
