Hitting the Links: Second in the League Edition

With that 2-1 overtime victory last night, the Bruins are now second in the NHL. Remember when they were second to last on Halloween? Well, maybe let's just forget about that.

All that matters is the Bruins are doing well right now on their nine day road trip (which is only three games, but that's what Tyler Seguin's twitter said). If you're all about looking at fomer Bruins on their new teams without actually following that team more than when they play the Bruins, you are in luck! The next game on the road trip is the Dallas Stars where Michael Ryder has made his new home.

After the jump, a few Bruins being named "man of the year" where they are from, trivia and people actually do win money on the Bruins scratch tickets.
