The Bruins are officially streaking in the double digits.
On Garden ice for a Saturday matinee showdown with the New York Rangers, the Bruins made it 10 straight victories, and with a true team effort that included goals from four different scorers.
It was an attack that, while delayed with a bit of a slow start from Jim Montgomery’s squad, did ultimately overwhelm a Ranger squad that was forced to play this game with just 16 skaters due to salary cap issues.
“We got to [our game], yeah,” Montgomery, whose team is now at a staggering 103 points on the year, offered after the victory. “I thought we played really intelligently in the third. The first two periods for whatever reason our mental execution, us reading plays and making plays with or without the puck was really slow.”
With the win, the Bruins became the third team to have a double-digit winning streak this season, joining the Hurricanes (an 11-game win streak that ran through most of December and into early January) and the Devils (a 13-game win streak that started in October and ended in November).
