Boston Bruins – 4th Atlantic Division

The Boston Bruins got off to a sluggish start to the season but have since righted the ship in a standings-climbing direction.

The Bruins are now on a four-game winning streak after enjoying a light week with only two games on tap. They collected a 2-1 OT win over the Florida Panthers and finished the week with a 5-2 drubbing of the Edmonton Oilers.

Brad Marchand drove the B’s offense with a goal and two assists, including the OT winner against Florida, and Dougie Hamilton recorded a goal and two assists in the game against Edmonton.

Tuukka Rask escaped a tough few games in mid-October and has returned to playing world class between the pipes and Boston has overcome a depleted defensive group to turn their season back in the right direction.

Boston sits tied for fourth in the Atlantic with the Toronto Maple Leafs but have the tiebreaker.
