So how many teams can go on a grueling 6 game road trip, all the way across the continent, and come home with 6 straight victories?
One. The 2010/11 Boston Bruins.
The team, boasting several recent acquisitions, rattled off 6 impressive victories. A road trip such as this where the team goes 3-3 is considered decent, 4-2 much more so. But 6 straight, well that's just silly.
They've played outstanding hockey, getting contributions from everyone. Krecji seems to have realized that much of the team's success hinges upon his efforts and he has stepped up.
Everyone seems to realize that they are pushing hard for the playoffs and this...shhh...this might be the year.
Tuukka seems to have shaken the rust and once again resembles a reliable goalie that can go out and win games, giving his team the confidence that he will stop much of what is thrown at him.
Ryder and Horton have been playing like men on fire as of late. With them getting hot, the sky is the limit.
I'll be at the game tomorrow night, hoping and cheering wildly for a 7th straight win. If I have to drink 100 beers to help the boys get that win, then so be it. I can't wait to be in the Garden once again and cheer along with the rest of my fellow Bruins fans. They've put quite a team on the ice this year, and now is the time to push and push hard.
