The wins just keep on piling up for the Bruins.
With their 3-0-0 week, they have now won 18 of their last 21 and earned at least a point in 19 of those games. Along with the victories comes plenty of candidates for Bruin of the Week. And this week there were plenty of candidates.
After watching Tuukka Rask blank Los Angeles Tuesday, Tim Thomas took back the crease and made the most of his opportunities in victories over Ottawa and Philadelphia. He stopped 78 of 80 shots (.975 save percentage) in the two games, including a shutout of the Flyers.
It seems that Rich Peverley does everything quietly, and he heated up this week somewhat under the radar. For the week he put up 2-4-6 totals and a plus-4 rating while attempting just four shots in the three games. His goal against Los Angeles was the game-winner.
Daniel Paille, meanwhile, continued to prove the Bruins are a four-line threat. Paille scored three goals over the final two games of the wek and was plus-3. He fired six shots on goal.
The Bruins needed more than one player on defense to step up on the back end while Zdeno Chara was out. Joe Corvo was one of those guys, and he kept doing it even after Chara’s return. For the week he posted three assists and a plus-5 rating. He attempted five shots on goal in the three games.
