Jones has been terrorizing quarterbacks all season with 10.5 sacks which is good for second in the NFL.

So with a depleted offense the defense must carry the day!

Go get ’em tiger I mean lion!

Bruins This Week: 32 Stats You May Have Missed

Well, the Bruins were within the playoff structure on U.S. Thanksgiving. Recent history tells us that gives them a better-than-average chance at being one of the 16 teams still playing come playoff time. In the last week, the Bruins’ power play has continued its torrid pace, the team set a new season high in shots on goal (and saves), Torey Krug took (and won) a faceoff, the team did something that no other team has done in the Expansion Era and one of the best two-way players in the league tied an impressive franchise mark. This is Bruins This Week: The Stats You Need To Know.

The Bruins are rolling thanks, in large part, to some of their newest faces.

The Bruins are rolling thanks, in large part, to some of their newest faces.

0: For the first time this season, the Bruins entered a third period in a scoreless tie in their game against the Maple Leafs on Saturday. They’d had no 1-0 games after two either. That was also just the second game this season in which neither the Bruins nor their opponent scored a power-play goal. In the other game, Winnipeg did not have a power play opportunity on Opening Night.

2: The B’s blanked the Leafs, 2-0, on Saturday (Nov. 21) for their second shutout of the season. Last year, they recorded their second shutout on Nov. 18. That win gave them their first pair of consecutive home wins since March 31 and April 4 of last season.

2: On Monday, Zac Rinaldo had just his second game of the season with a positive rating in the 18th game he played.

2:53: Zdeno Chara ended the first period of Wednesday night’s game in Detroit with 2:53 of consecutive ice time. Zach Trotman was also caught out there for the final 2:46.

Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers For 11/21/15

The Bruins continue to try to find their legs and eliminate the “passengers” they have on the ice, but it’s been a tough go of late. Over the last two weeks, however, the power play did something it hadn’t accomplished since the 2006 season, a local kid scored in his first game, they continued their trend of not being able to win in high-scoring games and keep losing at home this century to one Western Conference foe. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.
