Boston Bruins Looking To Keep Rolling Against New York


Boston Bruins Looking To Keep Rolling Against New York Rangers In Friday’s Matinee

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Bruins are all set to take on the second place team in the league, the New York Rangers. Coming into the game with a 16-4-2 record, and looking to rebound from Wednesday night having just gotten blown out by the Montreal Canadiens 5-1, the Rangers will be a very strong challenge for the Bruins. The Bruins biggest task will be playing consistently for 60 minutes, something they’ve failed to do for most of the season so far. “First periods have been good, second periods have been awful for us and the third periods have been kind of so so” said Bruins forward Ryan Spooner when speaking about the Bruins previous two games. “I think it’s just coming out in the first period…and trying to maintain that for the whole game.”

  • The Bruins could certainly use some better play, regardless of the fact that they’re on a four-game winning streak. The Bruins completed a huge comeback against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday, but Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg knows that escaping with points isn’t all the team has to do to be successful. “Escaped is a good word..we did win, which counts at the end, but e want to play a better style of hockey.” Escaping enough games with points can be enough to make the playoffs for the team in the long-run, but it won’t be that easy when the playoffs actually start. Consistency is key, and the Bruins are seriously lacking it right now with their young defensive group.

    When talking about playing alongside one of the Bruins youngest defenders in Colin Miller, Seidenberg had nothing but praise to share. “It’s fun to play with him. He’s a very good skater, a good puck-mover, shoots the puck well…It’s easy.” Hopefully Miller can continue this for the rest of the season, especially considering the Bruins are in need of young pieces like him to take the reigns for the team sooner rather than later. Miller will be rolling into Friday’s game against the Rangers having scored the game-tying goal and assisting on the game-winner in Detroit on Wednesday, and he’ll look to keep adding to his already impressive nine points in 18 games.

    The Bruins have had recent success against the Rangers, and Claude Julien said as much when speaking about them prior to the game. “We’ve always played the Rangers fairly well in the past and I would anticipate that we do the same thing again here today.” Julien continued by saying “We know it’s going to be a tough game, but at the same time, we’re on a good winning roll and it’s up to us to keep it going” Julien also described this game as: “An opportunity for us to go out there and show we can play against some of these elite teams and they’re definitely an elite team.”

    The Bruins are Rangers will be set to drop the puck at 1:00pm as the Bruins look to advance to 5-0-0 in their last five games.
