Since starting the season 3-7, the Bruins can’t really find a way to lose. They entered Friday night’s clash with the Panthers as winners of 19 of their last 22 games, including one memorable blemish: a 2-0 loss to Florida back on Dec. 8.
You have to imagine that despite the recent success, the Bruins must have had revenge, and not the upcoming holiday break, on their minds heading into Friday night’s game. And they didn’t disappoint.
The Bruins scored four first-period goals, and added four more over the final two periods to defeat the Panthers 8-0. Tuukka Rask finished with 30 saves to get the shutout, but the story was the off-the-charts offensive explosion.
The Bruins get the holiday break off before playing Wednesday night against the Coyotes.
Merry Christmas everyone!
