Sunday afternoon, the current President’s Trophy leaders, the Boston Bruins defeated the New York Rangers in Madison Square Garden by a score of 3-1 on the back of goals from perennial Selke Award Finalist, Patrice Bergeron & a pair of Charlie’s in Charlie McAvoy & Charlie Coyle.
The win put the team on a 3 game winning streak, as well as their 10th win, in 11 games which has them sitting atop of the NHL by 3-points over last year’s President Trophy winners, the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The “Perfection Line” has once again carried the team throughout the grind of the regular season. That line of course features the aforementioned Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand & current NHL-scoring leader, David Pastrnak. Pastrnak has tallied 42 goals this season, couple with 40 assists, Brad Marchand has potted 23 goals to go alone with 51 assists & Patrice Bergeron (who missed 9 games with a lower-body injury, earlier this season) planted 26 goals while having 24 helpers, thus far in the 2019-2020 campaign. It’s in-arguably the best line in the entire league…but the Bruins “weak” spot has been secondary scoring each of the past 2 seasons…which hasn;t been an issue, thus far…Jake Debrusk has 18 goals, David Krejci has 13 (Krejci’s missed 10 games with an upper-body injury, earlier in the season), while Charlie Coyle has added 13 goals as well.
The trade-deadline is just days away & the team is in the middle of several big rumors & the center of many trade discussions as the club looks to enhance that secondary scoring even further.
The Bruins came up INCHES short, last season…losing in at home in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the St Louis Blues…mainly because of lack of secondary scoring. If that top line was neutralized, it was a wrap for Boston. So far, this season has been a different story.
However, only time will tell if that’ll carry over into the Playoffs…being a Bruins fan, I certainly hope so.
