Haggerty: Boston Bruins’ Kuraly ‘Finding His Game’ At Perfect Time | BHN+

It hasn’t been a perfect season for Boston Bruins center Sean Kuraly. It hasn’t even really been a good season for the fourth line center as he struggled with consistency and providing energy for a fourth line that wasn’t a strength for most of the year.

The minus-9 rating on the season and the healthy scratches in the middle of the year would attest to some of the rough nights endured by Kuraly throughout the year. The low point might have been a turnover in front of his own net that directly led to an early March loss against the Washington Capitals and drew the ire of Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy after it was all over.

But full credit to Kuraly for turning things around and playing much improved hockey down the stretch with the playoffs around the corner. Best of all: More Kuraly scoring means the exuberant bottom-6 pivot’s celly is back in season for the Black and Gold as well.

“I think the reaction says it all there. It feels good. Feels good,” said Kuraly. “That’s the name of the game, I guess. There’s a lot of other things you try to take pride in but at the end of the day putting the puck in the net feels good. You can tell by my reaction how [the goals] felt.”
