The Boston Bruins have gone past red hot and are currently enjoying white hot and smoldering status in the NHL. The earned their tenth win in a row tonight, a solid 4-2 performance where eleven different Bruins earned a point in their victory over the New Jersey Devils. David Krejci hit the sixty point mark this season tonight, Brad Marchand scored his league leading fifth short-handed goal, and Jarome Iginla is now tied with Bruins legend Johnny Bucyk for 25th overall in all-time scoring. Here’s how the game looked from the perspective of the leaders of the Eastern Confrence. (Boston Bruins)

The New Jersey Devils saw it from a different perspective, as this loss (their third in a row) has all but shut them out of the playoffs. In a way, it’s a sad way to see Jaromir Jagr and Martin Brodeur have their likely final NHL season end up this way. (New Jersey Devils)

The Bruins have powered through all opposition of late. It doesn’t matter who has been sick or injured, the depth of the Bruins bench (along with some help from the Providence team) have been enough for the Black and Gold this season. (NESN)

For the Bruins faithful, there was never any doubt that this year’s Boston Bruins team was a solid contender for the Stanley Cup this year. The Bruins are playing so well on all aspects of the game, many people are getting on the Bruins bandwagon as they have been shown to be the very best team in the National Hockey League. (CSNNE)

While he’s not a member of the Bruins, Henrik Lundqvist is one of those players (like Wayne Gretzky, Steven Stamkos, Jarome Iginla) that very few NHL players have anything bad to say about. He had an impressive milestone win tonight. With his 8-4 win over the Ottawa Senators, he becomes the all time win leader for the New York Rangers with 302 career wins. (Sports Illustrated)
