Don’t look now, but the B’s offense is cooking. And in all facets of the game, too.
Back on Garden ice after a two-game road trip with stops in Montreal and Buffalo, the Bruins extracted some much-wanted revenge against the Canadiens with what was a 5-2 beatdown over their century-long rivals.
It was a win that saw the Bruins land a season-high 44 shots on goal on the Canadiens’ Jake Allen, and hit the five-goal mark for the second straight game for the first time all season. It was also Boston’s third time scoring five goals in their last four games overall, and this one featured a power-play goal from the B’s for the sixth straight contest.
Say what you will about the quality of their opponents, sure, but for the Bruins, the offensive surge is a welcomed sight.
