Bruins start a three game road trip today. Last year the Bruins were road warriors.
This year it's been a different story but the Bs have yet to hit the open road since starting their seven game win streak. Luckily for Boston they won't have to play against the New York Islander-Mets while they wear their ugly third jerseys. That'll happen on March 31st. Like the Blue Jackets, the Islanders suck. Hopefully the Bs learned their lesson about playing down to their opponents and will actually play high caliber against a low caliber team tonight.
Last time the Bs and Islanders faced, the Bs steamrolled them. From our recap:
At the end of October we were all frustrated at the piss poor play of the Bruins, Rask was ready to murder small children because his team never play anything approaching good in front of him and Nathan Horton's picture was being posted on milk cartons around Boston.
Three games into November the Bruins are 3-0, Rask got a much needed win and Horton looks to be turning a corner.
Bruins looking to make it eight.
