When you’re talking about a 10-1-1 club — and a relatively unexpected 10-1-1 club at that — it’s admittedly easy to find a lot of positives.
But the greatest positive of all through 12 games (and just two losses) for Jim Montgomery and the Bruins: This is a team that simply refuses to let their losses snowball. Even when the schedule, as well as the continued losses on the personnel front, suggests that they should.
In Dallas for a showdown with the Central-best Stars, and still without half of their ‘regular’ defense (including their top pair), the Bruins looked primed for their second straight defeat. Especially when the Stars made it a one-goal game in the third period and seemingly had all the momentum going their way.
