The Bruins have won six in a row, they’re on top of the Eastern Conference and several of their players are red-hot.
That’s why picking a Bruin of the Week is going to be difficult after a two-win, no-loss week.
No one, however, is hotter than Brad Marchand right now. The speedy winger recorded his first NHL hat trick against Florida. For the week he put up 4-2-6 totals and a plus-5 rating. His goal against Montreal was the game-winner.
Benoit Pouliot has been a pleasant surprise for Boston the last couple weeks. He recorded one goal in each victory, including the beautiful end-to-end score against the Panthers. That was one of the prettiest goals by a Bruins player this century. He fired five shots on net in the two games and was plus-2.
It’s hard to give Dennis Seidenberg a lot of recognition for his great play because what he does rarely can be quantified. Last week, though, he scored his first goal and added an assist against Florida. He was plus-3 in 43:55 of ice time over the two games.
Fellow defenseman Andrew Ference has been providing plenty of quantifiable production to the Bruins’ cause with a four-game point streak. Last week, he recorded two assists and a plus-2 rating in 34:26 of ice time in the victories.
So I ask you readers of TheBruinsBlog.net:
