They didn’t win a single game of the round-robin. However, in their last game against the Washingyon Capitals, the Boston Bruins seemed to have more energy, more compete than they had had in either of their last 2 games. So, there’s hope that when the B’s play their first official playoff game, they will kick themselves into that extra gear. They better find it quickly as they will be facing the Carolina Hurricanes starting on Tuesday night. Continue reading

Since the NHL has been rigorous in their approach in making sure that no one contracts the disease nor tests positive for it, Tuukka Rask was held out. Continue reading

I’m not going to waste much time nor energy on how the Bruins played yesterday. They played like garbage.

April Ludgate

I wish I agreed with April Ludgate. The Bruins playing like trash is not what the 2019-2020 season is all about. It’s supposed to be about dominance and revenge, not trash. Continue reading
