The Bruins are on a 3 game winning streak and prepare to battle the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. Boston started off the season having trouble putting the puck in the net, but have now scored a total of 18 goals in the last 3 games.
Former Chicago Blackhawk and current studio analyst for Versus, Jeremy Roenick spoke with Toucher & Rich about the Boston Bruins, Tyler Seguin, why he cried while he was covering the Blackhawks winning the Cup in 2010 and the job Brendan Shanahan is doing as the Vice President of Hockey and Business Development and head disciplinarian.
With the poor start the Bruins had and the way they have turned things around these past 3 games what is the national perspective of this team?
“I think they’re getting back to their hard working, grinding, dig it in style that won the championship last year,” Roenick said. “The beginning of the season they were still celebrating the fact that they won the Cup; they got their rings, they were parading the Cup around at the football games, they weren’t mentally into the game and it’s hard to go through a summer of a tremendous celebration and victory.”
“Right now they are starting to fight, they are starting to react and respond in hockey games the way they are suppose to,” said Roenick.
They went on to discuss Tyler Seguin and his impression of how the youngster is playing this season. “I think that Tyler Seguin has been the best player on that team all year. I think he’s the player if you’re going to talk about the Boston Bruins that really hasn’t had a bad stretch,” said Roenick.
