Morning Skate: On the board

The offense has picked up, folks.

Well folks, it’s Monday.

If you consider Thursday night part of the hockey weekend, the Bruins had themselves a pretty darn good weekend.

Notable achievements include:

  • Two wins
  • Jack Studnicka’s first NHL goal
  • Craig Smith’s first goal as a Bruin
  • Even-strength goals galore


Additionally, the Bruins got two solid games in a row from Trent Frederic, who has suddenly established himself as a bit of a fan favorite.

It’s early, but he’s rapidly gone from a “why did they pick him?” to a “they’ve gotta find a way to keep him in the lineup.”

Needless to say, Bruins fans are likely heading into this week feeling a lot better than they were on Tuesday/Wednesday of last week.

The B’s are off again today, with back-to-back games against the Pittsburgh Penguins coming up this week. After that, it’ll be a rendezvous with ol’ buddy Zdeno Chara and the Capitals.

Easy week, eh?

Today’s highlight

Entertaining guy, that Trent Frederic.
