Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers

The Bruins appear to be on their way back to full strength with the return of some of their core players from injury and as rumors continue to swirl about them landing some big names, their play has been improving over their last couple games despite the results not being there. During the last couple of weeks, they have seen a rematch of the 2013 Cup Finals, the first goal for a rookie winger, a dominating performance in the face off circle and a milestone goal for the Little Ball of Hate despite averaging a 10th-worst 2.42 goals per game this season. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.

The Bruins have certainly struggled to score goals over the last few weeks, but they are starting to get some key guys back from injury.

1: Craig Cunningham scored his first NHL goal against the Senators on Dec. 13 in his seventh career game – a shorthanded goal that put the Bruins up, 1-0. It was the third shorty the Bruins have scored this season: David Krejci on Oct. 21 and Gregory Campbell on Oct. 25.

1: Niklas Svedberg became the first Bruins goalie to require overtime in four of his first five career wins, according to Elias. Three have come this year against Buffalo, Columbus and Minnesota as well as his first career win on Jan. 2 of last season against the Predators.

B’s Beat: Injured Bruins Set To Make Return

ZDENO

The last week or so for the Boston Bruins has been dreadful on a variety of levels. As they sit at home licking their wounds following a brutal west coast trip, the Chicago Blackhawks are heading to town in what will likely be another beating if the B’s can’t get it together.

Injuries have dominated the team for nearly the entire season thus far, and the team has struggled to stay afloat. While guys like Torey Krug and Kevan Miller have missed a few games here and there due to minor injuries, big fish like Zdeno Chara and David Krejci have missed nearly 17+ games apiece dealing with their ailments.

I know there are the tough guys out there who don’t like to make excuses for people, but any team would struggle without their number one center and number one defenseman. Would the Blackhawks still dominate without Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith? Would the Los Angeles Kings still be great without Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty? No, probably not.

Now before you go all crazy accusing of me of comparing those players to Krejci and Chara; I just want to make it clear that I am comparing these players’ importance to their team and nothing more. Obviously Toews is better than Krejci.

Fortunately for the B’s; both Chara and Krejci are practicing in full with the team, and it looks as if both could return to game action by the end of the week.

Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers For Dec. 6

The weather has not been the only thing in Boston to start getting colder over the last few weeks. To say that the Bruins have gone cold would be an understatement compared to the standards Black and Gold fans have grown accustomed to over the past few seasons. They are enduring through injuries and that has really shown in their play. Here is a deeper look at the statistics – most not being so pretty – that include a road slump, some troubling news about which team has been scoring first, milestones for coach and one of his oldest players, a winning streak over one recently relocated franchise and a less-than-stellar month on the power play. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.

The Bruins are fighting injuries and fighting to make up ground in the Eastern Conference standings.

0: Gregory Campbell had zero points in 12 games in November. It was his first full month without registering a point since October 2013.

0: The 2-0 loss to the Kings on Tuesday marked the first time that the Bruins were shut out on the road this season.

1: Montreal goaltender, Carey Price, registered his first ever shutout against the Bruins on Nov. 22, blanking his rivals, 2-0, at TD Garden.

1: Rookie Joe Morrow got his first NHL point and goal in the 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh (the team that drafted him) on Nov. 24 just 28 seconds after a Milan Lucic tally.
