Dennis Seidenberg and Andrew Ference are now the Bruins’ hottest goal-scorers, so that should tell you all you need to know about the state of Boston’s offense.
Both defensemen scored third-period goals last night, but the Bruins’ attempt to recover from a 3-0 deficit in Toronto came up short, 3-2, at the end of a four-game Bruins road trip.
Boston went 1-3-0 on the trip, which featured the team scoring just six goals. Their offense now ranks 13th in the NHL at 2.77 per game.
Seidenberg has scored in consecutive games and Ference has two goals in his last five games. That’s a whole lot better than Milan Lucic (0 goals in 15 games) and Nathan Horton (1 goals in 13 games). Even Patrice Bergeron scored two goals against Florida March 14 but hasn’t scored in eight other games around that win against the Panthers.
The Bruins are scheduled to practice Sunday at TD Garden in attempt to drum up some offense before Monday night’s Garden rematch with the Leafs.
