LOOK WHO'S IN FIRST PLACE
The Bruins' 3-1 victory Saturday night over Buffalo propelled them into 1st place in the Northeastern Division. Chuck Kobasew returned to action from a broken ankle with a goal and an assist. Apparent backup goalie Manny Fernandez stopped 32 of 33 shots despite not playing the past two weeks. Milan Lucic distributed 8 Hits.
The Bruins have won 3 straight by a combined score of 13-3. They've won 6 of the last 7 and are currently tied for the 4th best record in the NHL.
This year's Bruins have grown into a very entertaining team to watch. They've got more offensive firepower than they had last season with guys like Blake Wheeler and Patrice Bergeron making their presence known. Milan Lucic is one of the top hitters in the game. Tim Thomas has been playing out of his mind. It's a crime that he's not even on the All-Star ballot.
Bruins @ Chicago Wednesday night. I hate these 3 and 4 day stretches without a game.
