Now something people don't know here is the Bruins and Canadiens have been rivals for quite some time, with games often getting heated for some reason.
More times than not in this rivalry, the team with the most goals has won and that was certainly the case here tonight with the Bruins. What the Bruins did really well here tonight Doc is score more goals than Montreal and that really contributed to a victory.
Shift changes. Good zone starts. Other hockey terms I know.
The reason the Bruins play so well, Days of Y'Orr readers, is that a lot of them were born in the same country and when you're born in the same country or go to the same college at different times or once ran into each other at a Subway in Omaha you just have this natural chemistry.
Patrice Bergeron has a C in his name as does Zdeno Chara and they both had goals here tonight so you can really see that sharing a C in their names has made them great teammates and leaders.
And as Doc stated during the broadcast, the Bruins won seven of their first nine games and getting seven at a craps table in Vegas is good, which you can see clearly correlates to success on the ice for the Bruins who at times have done things in sevens.
Another thing that factored into the Bruins win here tonight folks is that the Bruins had a higher rate of puck possession, and what can sometimes happen if you're lucky is if you have much higher puck possession you may have a greater chance at victory and the Bruins did that really well here tonight.
What the Bruins also did well is score a lot which as you may not know quieted the Montreal crowd because the Bruins know fans don't cheer if their home time team is losing which is what happened here tonight.
The goal of a season for a team is to finish as high in the standings as possible and by gaining two more points here tonight the Boston Bruins gave themselves and opportunity to potentially move up in the standings, which sometimes happens when you win a lot of games and earn a lot of points folks.Add a comment
