Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad

It was an interesting week for the Bruins with a 7-goal loss followed by a dominating 6-goal performance. Believably, it featured some very interesting stats, including the most goals the team’s allowed since 2008, a scorching hot winger, the team backstop moving up on an important franchise list, their worst defensive game since 1965 and the first time something has ever happened for the team. Ever. This is Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad.

Brad Marchand has been slightly on fire for the Bruins over the last three weeks.

NBC Trolls Bruins After 9-2 Dumpster Fire Versus Kings (TWEET)

bruins dumpster fire

Milan Lucic was probably happy that he is no longer on the Bruins especially after his new team, the Kings destroyed them 9-2 at TD Garden. Wow, Bruins fans I guess the Winter Classic was a barn burner compared to the this dumpster fire.




It was so downright embarrassing NBC trolled the Bruins and their fans:

Jesus, the pussification of the Boston Bruins is in full swing!

Not Big or Bad: The Pussification Of The Bruins

pussification of the boston bruins
Warning: If you are all about Unicorns and Cotton Candy when it comes to the Boston Bruins, this article will offend you.

pussification

pussification (noun): the state in which a society hockey team becomes less and less tough. This noun’s originator is the famous comedian George Carlin.

“We are undergoing a pussification of our entire society hockey team.”

The Big Bad Bruins are long, gone and hard to find. That leadership, mentality, toughness, and killer instinct went to Florida (Thornton), L.A. (Lucic), New York (Boychuck) & Columbus (Campbell).




Well, the Bruins wanted to go in a different direction with the fourth line so that is why the whole Merlot line is playing somewhere else. Now the “checking line” is neither gritty nor skilled. It’s basically a black hole for players who are underachieving or who should not even be with the parent club.

Granted Lucic would be asking for a lot of money if he went to free agency, but he is looking well worth it as the Jimmy Hayes and Brett Connolly experiments are failing miserably. Neither player can score or take the body, so what do they bring to the table?

The answer: I have NO F*CKING Idea!

If you do, please leave a comment below.

Then there is Johnny Boychuck. Yes, 95% of Bruins fans will say, it’s in the past, let it go.

No, I will not and I cannot.

Since Boychuck was given away like a 3 legged chair at a yard sale, the Bruins defense has been a debacle and that’s putting it mildly. Boychuck was/still is everything the B’s need right now…..TOUGH, GRITTYDEPENDABLE & CAN CLEAR THE DAMN CREASE! That trade more than any other has put the defense’s balls in a vice.

Chara and Seidenberg are not the same guys from 2011 or 2013 for that matter. Boychuck would have taken minutes off their aging shoulders and legs.

We can thank Peter Chiarelli’s assassination of the franchise to for this blue line debacle.

Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad

The Bruins have entered the All-Star Break and despite having just one All-Star representative, they’re in a better position than most people would have predicted.

This is: Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad.

Patrice Bergeron is back in the All-Star game as the Bruins enjoy a week off.
