The B's keep racking up points, which means y'all have to put up with my terrible puns and oddball references yet again.

Big test today against a division leader, and also the 9th game in 15 days. Keep playing your 2022 game, get the win, and enjoy a couple days off.

Normally don’t like a matinee but on a freezing ass day with back-to-back NFL playoff games on right after, it’s the perfect day for it

It probably can't continue, but I can't remember a bruins teamwide offensive explosion like this. There may have been stretches of more goals, but not as many guys scoring them.

I know the new lines get a lot of credit for the goalscoring surge, but watching the highlights here it really feels like Cassidy and the coaching staff made some sort of adjustment that affected the whole team. There's just a killer instinct in the offensive zone, both on the forecheck and in attacking the net, that they didn't seem capable of before the pause.

58.8% xGF in that first period. Not quite as dominant as the past few games (understandable that they have a much better opponent today) but still good. 3-1 in high danger chances.

NST takes a while to update but pretty much a big fat zero in expected goals for the first five minutes of the 2nd. Yikes.

On replay it actually wasn’t that bad. Only looked brutal because his nose is a car accident right now. I’m sure it hurt like a motherfucker.

They started the first half of this period around 20% xGF, and now it's 66%. 7-1 HDC for the game. Need to pot one.
