It’s that time of the week again, and like last week the Bruins are red-hot.
That makes narrowing the field for Bruin of the Week even more difficult. There’s no shortage of candidates.
Defenseman Joe Corvo seems to be finally settling in as a Bruin. During the Bruins’ 3-0-0 week he totaled four assists and fired nine shots on goal. He posted a plus-4 rating.
The Bruins’ leading scorer Tyler Seguin ran his point streak to six games with 4-2-6 totals this week. He was also plus-4 with nine shots on net. Two of his four goals proved to be the game-winner.
After a recent slump, Brad Marchand broke out in a big way. The speedy winger posted 3-3-6 totals with a plus-5 rating. He fired eight shots on net.
Boston’s success tends to always come with an uptick in offense from the defenseman. In addition to Corvo’s emergence, Johnny Boychuk has been contributing. He scored one goal and assisted on a second this week while posting a plus-2 rating. He blocked eight shots and threw 11 hits while playing more than 20 minutes a night.
