We are 3, almost 4, games deep into the start of the 2019-2020 NHL season. There have been a lot of good things happening with your Boston Bruins up to now: starting 3-0 for the first time since the â€™01-â€™02 season. The play of Charlie Coyle. The play of Brandon Carlo. Torey Krug, the 5â€™11â€ terror on skates. Here are some of thoughts on what we are seeing right now.
Charlie Coyle picks up where he left off: Marc Savard came out with a lot of praise for Charlie Coyle at the beginning of this year after the trade was announced that brought him from the Wild to the Bruins. Coyle has been in a lot of mentions and conversations so far this season. The sequence of play against Vegas in the 2nd Period was fun to watch. https://twitter.com/i/status/1181775245855875074
Jaroslav Halak picks up where he left off: ‘Jaro’ started in net for the B’s on Saturday the 5th against the Coyotes. He ended the night with a 35 save shutout(48th of his career) and the B’s took the game 1-0. The win put the B’s at 2-0 to start the season. The game also highlights the fact that the Bruins won the goaltending tandem lottery with Rask & Halak. Halak with a save: https://twitter.com/i/status/1180669944444456960
The top line picks up where they left off: The pass Pastrnak sent off the boards to Marchand in the Vegas game was a beautiful thing to watch. https://twitter.com/i/status/1181768858186735616. See whats happening here? We are seeing the Bruins settling in nicely to start the season with nary a sign of Cup Hangover. For the most part, the team stayed together and that’s been a recipe for success three games in. Game 4 is in Colorado tonight. Colorado comes in with a 2-0 record. If the B’s continue the current formula, expect them to be 4-0 by the end of the night!
