Boston Bruins: Final Two Weeks By The Numbers

The Bruins’ historic regular season has come to a close and as the weather warms up in New England, they have their sights set on another deep playoff run. The B’s have seen their share of positives over the final couple weeks of the regular season, including the 100th career victory for their Vezina-worthy netminder and a career-best points streak for one of their leaders.

Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers For 3/29/14

It has been a very exciting last couple of weeks in the hub of hockey as the Bruins went on a tear following the Olympic Break and became the league’s first team to clinch a playoff spot. While their winning streak finally ended at the hands of Montreal, their point streak is still alive. Also happening were a milestone game for a hockey legend, a milestone assist for a Merlot member, another NHL debut for one rookie, the first ever home win against one opponent and the third-longest winning streak in team history. This is Boston Bruins: Last Two Weeks By The Numbers.

Jarome Iginla has been absolutely on fire during the month of March and a major reason the Bruins won 12 games in a row.

B’s Beat: Please Re-sign Jarome Iginla

600x400_031714_IginlaPostgame

I could think of a profound way to set up this article, but the title is doing so flawlessly. Jarome Iginla joined the Bruins during free agency after rejecting them so publicly during the trade deadline last season. It would be really easy to be a bitter little New Englander and hate on the guy, but I am going to go ahead and take the high road.

Iginla has been one of the best players on the team this season, he has completely come as advertised, and is contributing in tons of ways that don’t contribute to his stat line (which is good by the way).

It is becoming more apparent game after game; that Jarome Iginla needs to be re-signed by the B’s and given a multi-year (2-3 years, nothing crazy) to stay with this team for as long as the “window” open.

The former Flames’ captain and future hall of famer has contributed to the terrific consistency line-mates David Krejci and Milan Lucic have shown this season. Krejci has had his most complete season to date as a member of the Bruins. The Czech center has 16 goals, 44 assists, and a +33 in 69 games. Looch has been having his best season as a member of the B’s. He has 21 goals, 31 assists, and a +26.

The numbers for Krejci and Lucic are great, but it is the compete level and consistency that I mentioned above, which has contributed to their overall success. I attribute those two things to the presence of Jarome Iginla. The Bruins’ top line has never looked better.
