Boston Bruins team is playing their best hockey right now at the perfect time
With back to back wins last week against the Detroit Red Wings [6-1] on [Wednesday] and the Philadelphia Flyers [2-1] on [Saturday], the Boston Bruins are making a serious run on the Playoffs. They have been playing well in all aspects of the game. Their Penalty Killing is top notch, some where in the 80th percentile. Their forecheck has improved and they are finding more scoring chances. In the past games they have been shooting more and their shots on goal on average is close to 30 per game. They have been pressuring their opponent’s goaltender, making them work hard for saves.
Some notable players on the Team are [Forward] Brad Marchand and [Goalie] Tuukka Rask. Brad Marchand has had an incredible season. He has over 30 goals this year and is tops in the league at scoring. He has been huge in each of their wins. He is a play maker and every time he is on the ice he puts pressure on the opposing team.
[Goaltender] Tuukka Rask has also been a huge factor in the Bruins wins. He has over 30 wins this season, it is for a record 4 times for the Bruins. He makes the hard saves and has consistently kept their games close. His play against the Flyers on [Saturday] was exceptional. Giving up only one goal and making 25 saves. The game was close [1-1] in the 3rd Period and looked like it would go into overtime, till the Bruins scored [2-1] with about 1 minute remaining in the game. Tuukka picked up yet another win.
We will be watching how the Bruins play on Monday against the Vancouver Canucks. With a road trip for the next 4 games the Bruins will have to keep up their exceptional play and hold on to their number 3 position in the [Atlantic Division]. If they can do that they should make the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
