Six in a row. That’s good, and I mean real good. The black and gold are continuing to put up wins, as they downed the Devils last night. It just feels like even if the team is losing at any point, they can change it around at the drop of a hat. It also helps that the garden has become a tough place to play if you’re an opposing squad.
For an offense that some called non-existent, the Bruins have scored 34 goals in 6 games. So suck on that haters. That’s almost an average of 6 goals per-game. Every line is contributing to the flurry of goals. Last night, the 4th line, scored a huge goal to take the lead. Jordan Caron made an unreal no look, through the legs pass, to Shawn Thornton for the lay-up goal.
With time dwindling down in the 3rd. An unlikely new guy became the hero for Boston. Benoit friggin’ Pouliot. Pouliot’s goal with little over 3 minutes left was the game-winner. Pouliot also has a questionable, creepy, french-painter looking type mustache. I don’t know if I love it or hate it, but nonetheless, welcome to Boston ya bastard.
As I said, Pouliot scored probably one of the biggest goals of his career last night. Cam Neely up in the press box was jacked up after the goal. So will this light a fire under Benoit?
Campbell had a very solid game. He had 2 apples that helped the Bruins get the W. He out-hustled the Devils defense and beat Hedberg, the goalie, to a loose puck and threw it out front to Chris Kelly for an open net goal. Campbell has to be the best 4th line center in the game. He can score, he can set-up plays, and he isn’t afraid to drop the mitts. Kids got heart. Miles and miles of it (The Replacements reference).
Marchand took a questionable penalty that lead to a PP goal for New Jersey. After that, it looked like Marchand took a seat on the pine. Something clicked in Marchand’s head, because just 6 seconds into the 3rd period, the Nose Faced Killah was lighting the lamp. Hopefully that short-lived benching will boost Marchand and help him to continue to develop as one of the best players on the Bruins.
