2022-23 Bruins

Yeah, they are for real. I don't expect this pace to keep up, but what a run! 37-5-4 78points in 46 games! That is nuts. Happy to say I have seen all but maybe 5 games. Currently on a five game win streak. Even the players are feeling it enough so that Charlie McAvoy was quoted saying they feel like they are going to win EVERY night!

A spectacular sight to watch. This team is firing on all cylinders right now. I agree, this most likely won't continue for the entire season but they are a joy to watch. My wife and I are heading to Boston on March 30 to watch a game....I hope it continues until then.

Here we are, six weeks later: 103 points, ten game win streak. 49-8-5 with a 105 goal differential. Just incredible!

Now if the injury bug doesn't bite them badly.... Sweeney has made good moves to improve the team.

A rangers fan?....Im guessing maybe the Bruins werent the Stanley Cup champs or contenders when you became a hockey fan. For me it was the 1972 team defeating your Rangers in 6 games that made me a fan for life. My older brother went and bought our first color TV and a UHF antenna for that series and I watched every minute with him and his buddies.......they even let me celebrate the win with my first beer. Also developed a strong dislike of the Montreal Canadians....during those times....smug bastards.

Don't get me wrong, I love the bruins, but when they play I root for the rangers, even in the playoffs.
I grew up watching bs with my mother when games were on and my grandparents had bs season tix. Only reason we got cable was to watch games on NeSn.
Youth hockey uniforms were same as rangers so f'd up child psychology may be true reason. When they won cup in '94 i was running around the yard hoopin and hollering with my mother yelling at me to shut up out the door with my dad scratching his head what was wrong with me as he in no way a sports guy.
This year will once again end in dissappoint for rangers fans

Mike, you have to break it down and just become a fan of the game. Not a team. And admire what they have done this season, so far. It is a beautiful game they play as opposed to the trap that some champions played in the past. D men freed to come down and make a play in the zone, knowing they will be covered by a teammate. Some passes that just make me wonder how they knew their guy would be right there, tape to tape. The trust they have. The goaltending! The ability to play anyway the opponent thinks they can dictate. The collective team thinking they can and will win any game, from any score down, in any period. They can pound you with all four lines. This is like Islanders, Oilers, Canadiens rolled into one from their hey days, IMO. Just sit back and enjoy it... It won't last forever!

Having a great player like Bergeron as captain is also a big plus.

Hockey and striped bass catching are the root of my soul ( note how I did
Not say fishing in general as I don't care to fish for anything else)
Hockey is THE only sport I can enthusiastically watch any game , whether it be nhl, kids, or even pond hockey and enjoy and deep down yearn
to be part of.
Hopefully be able able to partake in both again someday. F'n Home Depot......
But damn are the b's electrifying to
Watch this year. I have watched more nhl hockey in my life time than even some broadcasters and I can't remember any team ever being just utterly dominating. Exciting for sure. Fear the Next few years gonna be like the current pats....... ho-hum.
But be worth it to bring my kids to a victory parade even though they have zero interest in hockey

Mike...Hockey is by far my favorite sport to watch. And playing hockey brings out the beast in me......I played defense... high energy and exhilarating ... breaking up plays over and over.

I dont mind the jerseys so much but the announcing is horrible. Although I just read that Jack Edwards was voted the most hated announcer in the NHL.

Yeah..I get why......sometimes its better to watch with the sound turned off.
Great comeback win after being completely outplayed in the first period.
Hoping to see a better start today by the Bruins on both offense and defense.

They tend to wear the different jerseys on saturdays. That b one is from like the 40’s or something like that but I prefer the spoked B as Howard cossel I mean Jack edwards says. Don’t care too much for Jack. Tries too hard to sound like something he is not. Now Brick I think is an outstanding color analyst outstanding did I say that twice.

My mistake....They only wore the green jerseys for pregame warmups I was thinking it would be for the whole game.......and I also prefer the spoked B.

Yeah ...Jack...for one thing....is too wimpy to be calling play by play for a game as violent as hockey.

Oh. Didn’t realize they had green on the warm up. Didn’t see it. Don’t want to see it. Probably for st pats day. Just another shirt to sell in the pro shop for $100 or more.

That first period yesterday was the worst I have seen them play probably all year. Passes weren't even close, and they got no bounces their way... Impressive they won.

Crazy how much the approach to goaltending has changed. Most goals I see now are 5-hole as he moves/drops, and upper shelf both blocker and glove side. They all play a down style game and they have to be 6'5" or taller to cover the top of the net!

I think the goaltending style is simple. Make a profile that covers the most sqft of the net. Nothing has changed….. except for the physical fitness and flexibility of goalies and all players. Gotta have some good knees to butterfly those pads on the ice. Must be nice to be in your 20’s early 30’s

I did not expect to have such clutch, dominant goaltending so soon again after Tuukka retired.

I became a Red Wings fan traveling to Detroit a lot in the 90’s during the Stevie Y. era of near total domination. Every year during a big trade show we did at Cobo our marketing director would take me to the pro shop to get a jersey. Back then I think the real Nike ones were 250 or 260 bucks.

Can’t believe the Bruins Wings game right now is blacked out.

My two boys and I were in town to catch a Bruins game not too long ago......street sign was a photo op.
Proud to say I raised them right.......never had any problems with either one of them.....upstanding, hardworking and respectable.....to be truthful my wife had a lot to do with that.

Great game. Todays win was reassuring.....stopped Minnesota's 14 game wining streak playing on the road. Two goals called back on the wild.. close calls.

I enjoyed the replay last night. They are clicking for sure.

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

It's time more people spoke up with the truth. Every time we let a leftist lie go uncorrected, the commies get stronger.

Ive been paying more attention to the Rangers lately ... they played a great game against Pittsburg.

The more i see of Trouba the more I would like to see a Bruins player with similar attributes.
