Boston Bruins – 3rd Atlantic Division

The Boston Bruins when 2-2 this week to move into third spot in the Atlantic Division.

The Bruins beat New Jersey  and Carolina, suffering  losses to the first place Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Patrice Bergeron score two goals and three assists to pace the Bruins offense, getting in on 5 of 8 Bruins goals for the week.

The team has slowed down after winning five straight but are still a threat to the division even without Zdeno Chara.

Despite a low-scoring week the Bruins were able to move up the Atlantic Division standings. Their lead isn’t comfortable, though, as Detroit sits one point back with two games in hand and the Ottawa Senators are two points back with a game in hand.
