The Boston Bruins are coming into the potential restart as one of the better positioned teams. However, how did the Bruins do before the coronavirus pause caused the season o be suspended? Well, that is what you are going to find out here as the Bruins were leading the Atlantic Division when the pause happened and actually had a commanding lead of 8 points as the season was winding down.
The offensive side of the Bruins was really clicking when the pause happened. The downside is it did take the Bruins a while to get the offense going great and that could show in the return. The Bruins were led by David Partrnak with 95 points and 48 goals. The assist leader for the Bruins was Brad Marchand with 59 assist, but he did lead the Bruins in the penalty minutes as well at 82.
When it comes to the goal tending the Bruins have a couple of potential hall of famers manning the net. The main starter for the Bruins was Tukka Rask who played in 41 games. Rask ended up getting 26-8-6 record with only 2.12 goals per game allowed. Rask managed to save 92.9% of the shots that were sent towards him. Jaroslav Halak was the other goalie the Bruins had relied on. Halak played in 31 games and posted a 18-6-6 record. Halak was not that bad either with 2.39 goals a game allowed and ended up saving 91.9% of the shots.
The Bruins were one team in the NHL that it took them a while to get going, but once they started moving along the Bruins were nearly impossible to beat. Look for the Bruins to have some of the same struggles they had early on with the way the team starts, but once the Bruins do get going it will be hard for any team to beat them if the Bruins are able to last that long.
