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:
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!
