Bruins Finally Get a Win – Losing Streak is Over

Boston Bruins fans collectively exhaled on Sunday afternoon, as the Bruins beat Montreal 3-0 to end their losing streak at 10 games.

Tuukka Rask was in net and made 36 saves for his third shutout of the season, and Marco Sturm scored twice to lead the B’s at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

It was the Bruins first home victory since their New Year’s Day victory in the Winter Classic at Fenway Park.

The game also featured the first NHL goal of Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid:

…as well as the first NHL fight for Blake (don’t call me Bob Sweeney) Wheeler:

It looks like that off-season training regimen finally paid off:

Rask was huge in this game, especially in the second period when the Canadiens outshot the Bruins 15-3, as he earned his third shutout of the season and added fuel to the Bruins goaltender debate.  Rumors are also swirling about the Bruins making Tim Thomas available as the March 3rd NHL trade deadline approaches.

The Bruins (24-22-11) stand two points out of the 8th and final playoff spot in the eastern conference as they head into tonight’s game in Buffalo.  Road games will follow in Tampa Bay on Thursday, then in Sunrise, FL  against the Florida Panthers on Saturday.  Then, they enter the two-week break for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

After losing 10 games in a row, the Bruins are only two points out of the playoff race?  Wow….Bruins fans really should:

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

        Clarence, two in a row! Even when blowing a 2 goal lead again.
        After Savard’s shot in the shootout I thought they were dead.
        But in the words of the big one, “How sweet it is!”
        I like them shooting second.

    Yikes Clarence 2-0 lead again! Is that 5 games in a row they have gone ahead 2-0?

  3. BornAgainBruinsFan Says:

    Clarence! they did it!!!
    Ten points in the last 6 games! Now I wish there was no Olympic break.
    The SOB’s have turned it around. These one goal victories are starting to take their toll though.
    Here’s something to help unwind.

      BABF~
      Is that Frank S. himself at the end of that clip?? Nice.
      Looking MUCH better at the break…7th place in the conference, 1 point ahead of Montreal with three games in hand.

      I’ve started to accumulate ticker tape for any possible parade in late June.

      I’ll be posting later today….and I’m glad this is no longer the Bruins fan theme song:

        Yup, that’s ole Blue Eyes doing his impersonation of Arte Johnson impersonating the nazi.

        I think that theme song is a thing of the past as the team has finally:

        Now I only hope they:

        again!
