With the NHL trade deadline less than two months away, it’s never too early to scout potential pieces to this contending Bruins team. As of today, the Bruins are currently leading the NHL in the standings with a solid 11-point cushion separating them from the Carolina Hurricanes. Dominating the regular season is great but none of it matters if the team doesn’t succeed in the postseason. Just ask Toronto Maple Leafs fans.
When you’re second in the league standings, it’s okay to eat a loss every now and then. Tonight’s heavyweight matchup between the Vegas Golden Knights, third in league standings, and the Boston Bruins lived up to the expectations. The Bruins’ three-game win streak and 14-game home streak ends as they lost in a shootout. However, this game had more meaning.
