The Bruins decided to do things in reverse in Florida on Thursday and it cost them control of their own destiny.
It’s difficult to know where to start when divvying up blame for this latest debacle.
“You can’t think about anything before you make the playoffs. So right now we’re in a battle to make those and you have to go with your best players.”
Just because Krejci can play the wing and is willing to do it doesn’t mean that’s where he should play.
The Bruins need to step it up against teams with nothing to play for.
Smith had the primary assist on the Bruins’ first two goals, as they rallied from 2-0 down in the third period to defeat the Red Wings 3-2.
Playing on a line with rookies David Pastrnak and Ryan Spooner has cut down forward Milan Lucic’s opportunities to play in crunch time down the stretch of the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Two days after lamenting the lack of the ability to get a potential goaltender interference penalty against Anaheim forward Corey Perry review, the Bruins got a lift from the boys in the NHL Situation Room on Saturday. And Boston took the momentum from the overrule and ran with it to snap a six-game losing streak with a 4-2 win against the New York Rangers at TD Garden.
CBS Boston’s Matt Kalman thinks the Bruins would be best to worry about playing better rather than missed calls and the absence of video review with only eight games left to earn a playoff berth.
In an odd twist, it appears the Bruins might’ve filled their right-wing need with Krejci.
