Welcome back to another segment of Grindin' Gears. You will be sad to know there are NO Charlie Sheen references in here because I'm already sick of him. You know what pissing me off this week? Well, ah, actually nothing.
I'll wait for the shock to subside. Look at the past week or so for the Bruins. A win in Calgary, a win in Vancouver and last night was the capper to a 6-0 road trip and Tuukka Rask shutout. On the whole, the Bruins played some excellent hockey on the road -- so what can I get mad at?
I could always sit here and blast the power play, but what's the point? I've done it already and if you've followed this team since Claude has been the head coach you already know that it is his Achilles's Heel.
I could talk about how bad the defense has been, but that'd be a lie because they've played particularly well over the past six games (The Edmonton game can be hit or miss depending your views), but unlike when they played Toronto, they weren't allowing guys like Iginla or the Ginger twins to split defenses and score goals.
The fact of the matter is that the Bruins have played good hockey when they need to play good hockey. Because of this 6-0 road trip the Bruins have tied Tampa Bay for second in the Eastern Conference (side note: this makes the match up on Thursday very important) and have a six point lead over Montreal for control in the Northeast Division (with a game on hand).
After the jump, we look at the upcoming schedule and a nice DKM rant...Add a comment
