Bruins back on NHL map behind new lines, Rask

USATSI_17526206

Prior to the break in late December, the Bruins were struggling to score goals. 

After 26 games, the Bruins’ offense ranked 22nd in the NHL. They were scoring 2.67 goals per 60 minutes in all situations, which worked out to 70 goals. Only four teams (Blackhawks, Islanders, Canadiens and Coyotes) had scored fewer goals at that point. 

The difference between the Bruins and those teams, however, is that Boston is actually good. The Bruins’ fortunes started to change when coach Bruce Cassidy finally split up the top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, giving the team the one-two punch it should have had all along. These days, the Bruins control the majority of shot attempts and scoring chances on any given night.
