Bruins Daily: Bruins Slumping; Bourque To Coach In 3ICE



Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are slumping through the midwest as they try to find their game again.

That and your latest Boston Bruins and NHL news and nuggets in the latest Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are officially in their second slump of the season after an embarrassing 6-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday. Defenseman Hampus Lindholm was basically the only Bruin to show up with a goal, and two assists.

Speaking of Lindholm, he returned to the lineup after missing the previous game, but fellow Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo did not play against the Blackhawks.

So should Boston Bruins fans be concerned that their team is suddenly slumping? Can they just turn the switch back on when the Stanley Cup Playoffs arrive in mid-April?

If they snap out of this slump, the Boston Bruins still have time to be one of the best NHL teams statistically in the history of the NHL. Are they in the discussion as one of the best teams ever?

Former Boston Bruins defenseman and hall of famer Ray Bourque will be a head coach in 3ICE, the 3-on-3 Summer League.

After going 1-2-0 with two subpar performances in their last two games, you can bet $5 on the Boston Bruins to snap out of it against the Jets in Winnipeg on Thursday. You’ll also get $200 betting credits, win or lose, with our latest DraftKings Promo!

They have been a different team losing to Detroit, Edmonton and now the hapless Hawks is embarrassing. looks like they’ve given up the will to win. I’m stepping away from this for a few games if they can’t beat Detroit and basement dwellers lowly Chicago. There’s no hope.

Watching past 3 games old patterns return.1.defense making poor passes too deep in their end. also when covering in their end defensemen watching the puck failing to pick up the man near post, what do you think happens. Offensively the tinkering with new players understood, but if it ain`t broke dont ruin chemistry. other issues again from past too much passing for perfect play, should take first shot and crash net for rebounds, this has vanished a bit. Plus blind passes of late too many breakaways now. Make things simple and keep out of our end.

One of the greatest teams ever? Lol!


it seems when bruins hit a slump, its when they get away from puck support play in their own end and in the offensive zone, they seem to want to spread out to much, watch the tapes that may you successful early in the season.
i agree, to many fancy pants plays.
coach should keep bertuzzi and hathaway with coyle, til decission time when hall returns, let em build some chemistry. coyle is a krejic re do, a centermand that has no consistant winger(s).

I agree with your entire message except for the “slump” part. I mean 4 games (with 3 losses) does not a slump make. 11-3-0 over the last 14 games isn’t half bad. I especially agree with you about Coyle. He looked really good against the Rangers (1g, 1a) but he has no consistent wingers except for Frederick who hasn’t been as consistent scoring wise since Hall has been out. I’ve been yelling at the screen about Pasta almost since he came into the league for his dumb turnovers. Obviously, you’ve gotta break some eggs to make french toast, but at… Read more »

Didn’t look too slumpy tonight, so I guess that theory is shot down.
