Boston Bruins: B’s Perfect On The Road


The Boston Bruins special teams have come alive during the B’s first road trip of the season. The Black and Gold put up three more power play goals last night in their 5-3 drubbing of the Arizona Coyotes. The Bruins also got their first shorthanded goal of the season, courtesy of the B’s shorthanded specialist, Brad Marchand. This gets the Bruins to a 2-3 record for their first five games, and the team seems determined to climb its way out of the early hole they dug for themselves.

Patrice Bergeron was once again the big man for the Bruins putting up two power play goals to put the game away for Boston. Both he and forward David Krejci had a three point game. With nine points, Krejci is tied(with Detroit’s Henrik Zetterberg) for the league lead in points with nine. The Bruins are still improving on their offensive game while cleaning up many of their previous defensive lapses.

Tyler Randell made a case for himself in training camp to make the final roster. So far, Randell has repaid the B’s trust with solid performances. In two games, Randell has made two shots on goal, both of them finding the back of the net. (You could almost hear Jack Edwards scream “Two L’s, Two Shots, Two Points!”)

Matt Beleskey acted more as a seventh defenseman tonight for the B’s, registering ten hits in the game tonight. While Beleskey has only put up two points(one goal)in the first five games, he’s looking more comfortable as a top-six forward for Boston.  Tommy Cross earned his first NHL point last night as well with an assist on the Marchand goal.

  • While the Bruins did let in three goals, Tuukka Rask wasn’t really responsible for any of them. The first one came at the expense of some questionable interference from the Coyotes. Bruins head coach Claude Julien (who is now 0-for-2)thought it was necessary to use his coaches’ challenge. (If you’ve seen comparisons between Rask and the goal overruled on Price against the Canadiens, it looks rather similar.) The other two goals were caused by too many Bruins being in Rask’s way.

    Granted, Rask putting up a .870 save percentage in the game wasn’t that great. Still, it gave Rask a massive boost to his confidence.  He got his first win of the season, and was able to get his save percentage above .850 for the first time this season. Rask made timely and important saves throughout the night, and it looks like the B’s starting goaltender is starting to play like the seven million dollar man the B’s think he should be.

    Right now, the Boston Bruins are perfect on the road and have their first winning streak of the season. The bear has finally come out of hibernation, and he’s looking for some meat to chew on.
