Since starting the season 3-7, the Bruins can’t really find a way to lose.

Loss to Habs Drops Bruins to Bottom of Eastern Conference

Let’s face it: the Bruins have received a pass so far this season. The Red Sox collapsed, drank beer, ate fried chicken, and were the talk of the town for weeks after the season.
