It’s a real shame that we can’t fast forward to the future. I mean, writing that date hurt because of the last two digits.

Anyway, the Bruins had themselves a West Coast Roadtrip (+Vegas) to be proud of! They won all four games. Sure, the last two were dicey, going into overtime and even the shootout, but what’s important is that the boys emerged victorious! Continue reading

Before we get into the good, the bad, and the ugly this week, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that it’s Jaromir Jagr’s 47th birthday. So happy birthday to Kladno’s finest!

MFA: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly February 8

Holy crap, it was quite a week of Bruins hickey, starting on Sunday when the Bruins snapped the five-season losing streak against the Capitals, the win against the Metropolitan leading Isles, and…

They should have won that game against the Rangers.

The Very Good:

  • Tuukka Rask! This week, Tuukka won two games, including a shutout against the Caps on Sunday. That shutout was a fitting way to surpass Tiny Thompson’s record for most all-time wins for a Bruins goaltender. Tuukka stood on his head and said, “Guys, I feel fine, I got this.”On Tuesday, he allowed one goal against the Isles and that one was a power play goal.

Patrice Bergeron! This week the perfect two-way player celebrated playing in his 1000th game in a Bruins uniform by scoring two in that game and by being carried off the ice by “Oh Captain, My Captain” Zdeno Chara.

And, he had 3 goals this week, to boot. Continue reading

These are troubling time to be a Bruins fan. Upon return from the bye week, the Bruins have played their first two games to OT, losing both in the extra period. Something isn’t working well enough to win the games in regulation.

A looming trade deadline (February 25th!) is not helping the Bruins right now either. Boston media and fans aline are calling for some crazy ass trades that involve several young Bruins players for veteran players like Artemi Panarin and Wayne Simmonds. While upgrading talent and skill would be great, is there anything that the Bruins can do to improve their chances of beating Tampa Bay? Probably not.

With that, let’s talk about the Bruins week in easily digestible terms. Continue reading

Hey its a new year and the Bruins are 2-0 in this new era! Nobody has been better in this first three days of 2019! In fact, we don’t have much to complain about at all; the B’s currently sit in third in the Atlantic, they’ve won three in a row, and they’re finding ways to win despite playing from behind. So this week, we’ll alter the rundown a bit. Continue reading
