BOS Team Leaders:
- I'll just get this one out of the way: the Habs won 10-1 at home - where they are 14-1-1 - over the Colorado Avalanche last week, a team the Bruins recently lost to by a 4-0 score. David Pastrnak had two goals for himself.
- Bruins have 2 point lead on four - FOUR - different teams in the east, meaning that the time is now to right this ship, as the room for error has already evaporated. On a positive note, just one of the teams below Boston in the standings has a better goal differential, the Tampa Bay Lightning, at 0. The Bruins are -1. Did I mention that it's a positive note?
- There's ample shooting from the Bruins, but little to show for it. A shuffle of lines and power-play sets at practice are Claude's efforts to restart the engine; will they carry into tonight's game? Look for the 'Lines' post later this morning.
