  • The Boston Bruins started off Wednesday night’s game against the Red Wings with a 1-0 lead after one period of play. Rookie Frank Vatrano returned to the lineup and skated alongside Ryan Spooner and Brett Connolly and he showed no signs of rust at all, winding up and firing a slap shot from the point to give his team the lead. The Bruins were outplayed for the remainder of the game, spending most of the following 40 minutes stuck in their defensive zone. Jonas Gustavsson came up huge for the Bruins against his old team, making 34 saves and allowing only two goals for a .941 save percentage.

    Throughout the first quarter of the season, the Bruins have been very good at getting early leads in games, but have also excelled at losing those leads, and subsequently the games, just as quickly. The most recent examples of this “phenomenon” occurred against the San Jose Sharks  and Colorado Avalanche. The most recent lost-lead came against the Sharks when the Bruins went down 1-0 just 42 seconds into the game, but ended up taking a 2-1 lead after scoring goals at the 9:20 and 11:50 marks of the first period. Unfortunately for the Bruins, they lost the lead at the 15:08 mark of the first period and never regained the lead after that. The loss to the Avalanche was even harder to swallow. After the Bruins went up 2-0 before the six minute mark of the game, the team collapsed and eventually relinquished two goals before the first period ended. The Bruins couldn’t find the back of the net again after that and ended up losing the game 3-2.

    The Bruins didn’t let history repeat itself in their game against the Red Wings on Wednesday, and resilience and solid goal-tending made all the difference. The Bruins might not have won the prettiest of games on Wednesday night, but a win is a win. The Bruins have actually been winning a lot as of late, going 6-2 in their last eight games. The Bruins have outscored their opponents 24-15 in that span, and hopefully that trend of superior offense and decent defense and goaltending will continue when the Bruins take on the New York Rangers on Thursday
