The Bruins Offense Is Slowly Turning Into a Top Five Unit


The Boston Bruins’ recent hot streak is due in large part to the play of their upstart defense, but all of a sudden, their offense is starting to take elite form.

The Bruins now rank seventh in goals per game and their forwards look to be getting even better.

Despite losing 6-5 in heartbreaking fashion to the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime, the Bruins showed they now have the offense to compete on nights when the defense slumps.

The Bruins have scored five or more goals in five of their last six games.

What’s even more promising for Bruce Cassidy’s squad is that they’re finding ways to score outside of the first line.


Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak have been as good as advertised with 40 and 39 points respectively, but they aren’t the only ones behind the offensive surge.

The likes of Ryan Spooner, David Backes, Danton Heinen, and even Riley Nash are getting involved and starting to light the lamp far more often than before.

If the Bruins want to make a playoff run, they need some serious scoring depth, so this is a positive sign.

Even the defense is starting to help light the lamp with players such as rookie Charlie McAvoy, who has five goals and 21 points so far.


The defense deserves a lot of credit, but they aren’t the only scary thing about this Boston team anymore.

The Bruins haven’t looked this good on both ends of the ice for a long time so fans should enjoy this while it lasts.

If the Bruins can keep both their offense and defense near this level consistently, then they have to be taken seriously come playoff time.

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
