Providence Bruins Weekend Recap 2/15 - 2/17

Providence Bruins Weekend Recap 2/15 - 2/17

For the first time in a while, the P-Bruins had a rough weekend, losing two of three. Since the beginning of January, the Providence Bruins have been one of the more consistent teams in the AHL.

Friday, Febuary 15 vs. Toronto, 3-1 Win: The P-Bruins kicked off the weekend with a solid 3-1 win over the Marlies on Friday night. Trevor Moore put Toronto up 1-0 in the first, but goals from Steven Kampfer and Lee Stempniak in the second gave Providence...

Dreger: At the deadline, Bruins are “in it to win it”

Dreger: At the deadline, Bruins are “in it to win it”

This is either great or terrifying, depending on your view of the team. It’s getting close to the deadline, and the Bruins are still in a bit of a weird spot. They’re firmly in playoff position and are a “good” team, but they’re clearly a step or two behind the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team they’d have to go through to get anywhere come June. So...do they make a minor move designed to bolster the current roster, or do they make a major splash and truly “go for it”? If you believe Darren Dreger, they’re looking more toward the latter. Dreger appeared on TSN 1050 in Toronto...

Bruins vs. Kings 2/17/19 RECAP: Rask has save of the year in 4-2 win!

The Bruins kept it fairly close until a pair of late goals ensured that the Bruins would be taking 2nd place in the Atlantic Division! First Period: The B’s started things off with trading opportunities once or twice, then Krejci gave Peter Cehlarik a pass who managed to get a borderline miraculous feed to Jake DeBrusk who cashed in to put the Bruins up 1-0! Celly szn is alive & well. Jake DeBrusk now up to 17 goals — a new career high. pic.twitter.com/uLyCnjAiGx— Conor Ryan (@ConorRyan_93) February 17, 2019 Seriously.

Why Brad Marchand isn’t scoring as much

Why Brad Marchand isn’t scoring as much

An in-depth analysis of Brad Marchand’s production One-timer data is thru the first 47 games, the rest is up-to-date and provided by Corsica and at 5v5. Some of the .GIFs used in this analysis are large, and may not show up in Apple News or Google AMP. At one point in this season, it was a story that Brad Marchand wasn’t scoring enough, and there was some merit to it. Over the first quarter of the season, Brad Marchand struggled to score goals. That has since regressed. Sitting at 22, he will surely hit the 30 goal mark again this season, so why is there an article on why he is scoring...
