Boston Bruins’ First Line Among the Best in The NHL

“Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports”

The Boston Bruins‘ top line is performing like the best line in the league. David Krejci has regained his form with nine points in his last nine games. Krejci is still playing with Milan Lucic and Jarome Iginla on the Bruins’ top line which has been tremendous after their slow start. Krejci has recorded 25 assists while Iginla has logged ten goals, and Milan Lucic has scored 12.

Iginla is finally finding the back of the net. He started off his Bruins career as a hard working blue-collar player willing to drop the gloves. He showed his dedication to the team and to the city from the second he put on a Bruins jersey, and his slow start was surprising given the talent that he was being surrounded with. Lucic’s ability to hold the puck and open up space for his linemates is impressive. You would think that the extra time Lucic supplied Krejci with it was only a matter of time that Iginla started to score in bunches. Iginla netted two goals against the Nashville Predators the other night and is due for more before the All-Star game.

Lucic’s 12 goals have been a pleasant surprise. Even though he is a power forward he does not have the best hands in the league. If Lucic continues to open space and allow Iginla and Krejci to play freely it would be enough for the Bruins. The fact that Lucic has 12 goals is an added bonus.

This line may be one of the best in the NHL. It will certainly keep the Bruins as contenders as long as all linemates stay healthy.
