Haggs: Are We Beginning To Feel Differently About Boston Bruins? |BHN+

BOSTON – Are we all beginning to feel a little differently about the Boston Bruins these days?

It was perfectly understandable for everybody from fans, to management, to media and to even the players themselves to feel a little unsure about the Black and Gold in the first three months of a regular season where the B’s struggled through continuous rounds of adversity.

From a schedule that seemed designed to prevent them from getting into a rhythm to the COVID outbreak in December, a Bruins roster with a lot of new faces really didn’t have much of a fighting chance to get off to a strong start.

But the Boston Bruins took the time to regroup while out on COVID/holiday break and have been a juggernaut in 2022 winning seven of eight games coming out of the break with the latest being Thursday night’s 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at TD Garden. The Bruins now enjoy a seven-point cushion for their wild card playoff spot, sit three points behind Pittsburgh for the top wild card spot and have closed to within five points of the Toronto Maple Leafs for the third spot in the Atlantic Division playoff structure.

The Boston Bruins just keep gaining momentum with game-breakers Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak both catching fire this month and Tuukka Rask now joining the fray to see how good the B’s could be this season.
