Another game, another six-goal performance from the Boston Bruins.
For the third-straight game, the Bruins scored six goals as they scored early and often while also spoiling the return of longtime Bruin goaltender Tim Thomas in a win against the Florida Panthers. Most fans of the Bruins are probably wondering where this explosive offensive production has come from. From what I have seen, the Bruins are taking advantage of every single opportunity that they have got. Either it is pouncing on the loose pucks or getting them on net or the pinpoint accuracy that the team has acquired all of the sudden, but whatever it is it has certainly worked for them as they continue to slowly distance themselves in the Atlantic Division.
In a game in which Thomas was to return and perhaps show the team and himself that he still had it, it was not meant to be as he happened to run into a hot offensive team that can score at will. A team that has gone now 5-0-1 in their last six games and that have recently scored six goals against the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders before the Panthers came to town. There was no way that Thomas could have done anything different.
Is it possible for the Bruins to keep up this offensive showcase? With players like Milian Lucic and Zdeno Chara it is possible, but it is nearly impossible to keep such an offensive display going for so long. But rest assured that the Bruins’ ability to take advantages of opportunities like the ones they have had the last three games, it would not be shocking at all if this showcase continues.
