And just like that, the Bruins have officially canceled out their first three-game losing streak in a year and a half.
Of course, ‘just like that’ may be selling the Bruins a tad short given the highs and lows of the last week and change.
Back in Boston — and slumping, and slumping hard — this time last week, the Bruins got a ‘get right’ visit from the Sharks last Thursday, rode the emotional rollercoaster of a head-to-head with the Maple Leafs last Saturday in Toronto without barfing, and carried that into a late-game comeback over the Blue Jackets at TD Garden on Sunday night.
Three wins in four days? Well, that’s never easy no matter how you slice it, and it was more than enough for Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery to give his team a day off on Monday.
