The Bruins sure know how to make a ‘slump’ feel like ancient history, huh?
It was this time just a week ago that the Bruins dropped a straight-up gross game to the Blackhawks in Chicago, which was good for their third loss in their last four outings. The Bruins looked gassed, sluggish, and at times disinterested. Well, a week later and the Bruins are riding a four-game win streak thanks to Tuesday’s 2-1 win over the Senators at TD Garden.
So, what’s in the secret sauce?
“Just in the course of the season, you have the energy levels that will go up and we’ll be feeling really good about ourselves and guys have legs and tons of energy and then occasionally you’re going to have down cycles where your energy isn’t [there],” Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery said after the victory. “And that’s what happened there for a little while. Like we couldn’t couldn’t make 15-foot passes.
“That isn’t common for us”
The energy in this one arrived off the bat, too, as all three goals scored in this game came in the opening 20 minutes of play despite the Atlantic Division foes combining for 76 shots in total by the night’s end.
