It’s a glorious time to play for the Bruins.
For the first time since 1992, the franchise is headed to the conference finals.
Obviously, it’s been a team effort so far. But there have been plenty of great individual performances, including some outstanding ones in the three wins that completed the sweep of Philadelphia last week.
After a quiet first round, David Krejci erupted in the second round against the Flyers. In last week’s three games he posted 2-3-5 totals, including the overtime game-winner in Game 2. He was plus-3 with five shots on net.
Dennis Seidenberg has been the Bruins’ ice time leader throughout these playoffs, and that didn’t change last week. In the overtime Game 2 win, he logged 36:44 of ice time. For the week he recorded one assist, a plus-6 rating and 10 blocked shots.
The first playoff run of Nathan Horton’s NHL career couldn’t have gone any better if he wrote it up as a fairy tale. He continued to produce points last week with four assists, including setting up Krejci’s Game 2 winner, and one goal. He was plus-4 with nine shots on net.
Captain Zdeno Chara has thrived on the sport’s biggest stage like he never had before. Last week, he recorded two goals, one assist and a plus-7 rating with 11 shots on net and seven blocked shots.
