Power Rankings
The Bruins are 7-2-1 over their past 10 games. They still haven't done a great job of protecting home ice, which has been a problem all season. That said, Brad Marchand is on fire with nine goals in his last nine games.
The Bruins have gotten so much out of their forward group and their blue line has been better than expected. That said, you'd have to think they could strengthen that D corps just a bit if they find an appropriate trade. They may need to if they want to contend for a title and not just get into the playoffs.
The Bruins are starting to heat up again, nobody more so than Brad Marchand who has goals in five straight games. He's up to 20 goals this season and the Bruins are back in third place in the Atlantic.
David Krejci has returned to practice, which is great news for the Bruins, who have sorely missed the skilled forward. Despite more middling play, the Bruins have managed to join the growing list of Atlantic Division teams that have passed former top dog Montreal.
With seven losses in their last nine games, the Bruins are starting to lose their grip on a wild-card spot. Tampa is just one point away, but the Bruins are about to hit a little bit of a soft spot in their schedule. They have to find a way to take advantage.
Losing the Winter Classic at home had to sting a bit, but it doesn't hurt as much as losing David Krejci to injury. He's been one of the most consistent performers all season and his absence last year was a big reason Boston missed out on the playoffs.
While the Atlantic race heats up, the Bruins are stumbling with three straight losses. Now they've also lost David Krejci for an uncertain amount of weeks due to injury. Only Patrice Bergeron has been more impactful for the Bruins than Krejci this season.
Heeere come the Bruins. Only one point behind the Canadiens for the top spot in the Atlantic, Boston has closed the gap with a 10-1-3 record over the last month. Tuukka Rask's .961 save percentage through seven starts in December has helped in a big way.
The Bruins continue to impress offensively. They have four or more goals in six of their last 10 games and remain in the top three in the league in goals-per-game. Brad Marchand and Loui Eriksson scoring at a high clip has been an important development.
Boston is streaking again. They've won five in a row and the team's scoring attack has remained potent. Familiar players -- David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Loui Eriksson -- are leading the way.
Preseason Power Rankings
The Bruins' defense was a known trouble spot coming into the year. However, in Zdeno Chara's absence, their lack of depth was exposed. Throw in a less-than-stellar start from Tuukka Rask and it's a bad recipe without some changes.
