Welcome to Crossing The Atlantic, our weekly Atlantic Division round up. We’ve enlisted the help of writers who cover their teams on a daily basis from across the FanSided network. In the order of the Atlantic Division standings, here’s this week’s edition. Enjoy! (NOTE: Most of these pieces were submitted yesterday afternoon so they don’t reflect on last night’s games.)
The Boston Bruins are riding a 10-game winning streak, and are closing in on the St. Louis Blues for the privilege of being called the best team in the NHL. The Bruins have only had five 10-gamers in their 90-year history, and three of them have happened with Claude Julien as head coach.
Johnny Boychuk and Adam McQuaid are still questionable to play for Boston at the moment. Thankfully, Andrej Meszaros has proven to be quite adaptable to the Julien system, and Corey Potter seemed to function well in at as well.
While Rich Peverley is no longer a Bruin, he was a key component to the Bruins’ Stanley Cup win in 2011. He was released from the hospital yesterday after having surgery to repair a heart problem that caused him to essentially drop dead in the middle of the game on March 10th. Marc Savard once told Bruins fans that once you were a Bruin, you were always a Bruin. Glad to see him better and I hope we’ll see him on the ice again.
