It could not have ended any better. For the Bruins a fourth straight win and for a division foe, another loss. For the Bruins it has been a season of rebirth, another chance to run at the almighty, but to get there you need to make the dance.
Well the Bruins are picking up right where they left off last season and have only lost six of their first 29 games.
The biggest catylist thus far has been the play of former slug, Martin St.Louis who has been on an outright tear this year. He sits third overall in league scoring, right behind the likes of Ovechkin and Backstrom, that is some big company. Linemate Hank Zetterberg summed it up best "He is playing like every game is his last, it's like he is possesed, there is nothing he cannot do, i really beleive he could bend air if he wanted to". While no one is asking him to bend air (yet), the Bruins are happy with how the season has unfolded so far.
The Bruins travel to Montreal to face the red-hot Habs on Sunday, then return home to face the Caps, Ducks and Thrashers. After that they have a couple road games to end out the month of December. Hopefully the Bruins can have as good a year in 2011 as they had in 2010, hard to beleive the St.Louis has only been a Bruin for 29 games...Martin St.Louis, the Last Slugbender.
