While the Bruins are still first in the Atlantic, it’s been a rough January for the Black and Gold. Dougie Hamilton and Adam McQuaid keep getting injured, and that’s one of the reasons why Kevan Miller got the official bump up to Boston, signing a two-year, $1.6-million contract with Boston. The Bruins’ rough California trip only saw them get two points (and two babies courtesy of the Boychuks), but the Bruins have been playing better. Brad Marchand has found his game again, to the tune of six goals in four games, and that’s great news for all of us Bruins fans.
