Stat of the Week

Since defeating the floundering Habs on January 12th, the Bruins have had a rough 12 games. They've gone 5-6-1 over that span, which on the surface doesn't seem awful. Last night's no show to the Sabres not only dropped them under .500 since the Montreal win, it also ran their goal differential during that span to -7 (not counting OT/SO).

Two Bruins have had particularly bad plus/minus numbers during this slide have been involved in the same D pairing, with Dennis Seidenberg (-10) and Joe Corvo (-6). The reason this is worth noting is that with all of the talk surrounding potential trade targets in Ray Whitney, Tuomo Ruutu, Teemu Selanne, Ryan Smyth, and a host of others, the place where the Bruins might be most in need of an upgrade is another legitimate top 4 defenseman, who would split the Corvo-Seidenberg pairing up, and allow the Bruins to better weather injuries, rotate out struggling players, and (where possible) exploit certain matchup opportunities in the playoffs.
