Haggs: ‘Reset’ Button Working Wonders For The Boston Bruins |BHN+

If it wasn’t crystal clear prior to Saturday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Boston Bruins are clicking on all cylinders right now.

With a group that’s largely passed through the COVID challenges and finally getting to a regular portion of the schedule, a juggled lineup of forwards once again helped lead the B’s to a 5-2 win over the Bolts at Amalie Arena. The Boston Bruins star players showed up with David Pastrnak scoring each of the team’s first two goals, with Taylor Hall assisting on both of them, and Brad Marchand adding two goals as well.

With the added breathing given courtesy of rookie Oskar Steen, who made a great skill play while also overpowering 6-foot-7 defenseman Andrej Sustr to keep control of the puck before feeding to Anton Blidh for a backbreaking fourth goal.

Add in a solid performance between-the-pipes for Linus Ullmark and a strong defensive effort against the high-powered Lightning even without the services of Charlie McAvoy, and the Boston Bruins had one of their best wins of the season.

Not even a potentially serious leg injury to Nick Foligno during the game, really the only low point during the 60 minutes of hockey, could put a total damper on the team’s enthusiasm after it was over.
