Bruins Built To Flex Their Muscle Come Playoff Time

Posted by Carter Brown on 4/27/2013 3:10:45 AM

The Boston Bruins bullied their way to a Stanley Cup title in 2011. It wouldn’t be a surprise at all if they did it again. The Bruins are a team built to flex their muscle at playoff time, and have the weapons in place to make another extended run. Boston is a tough online sports betting team with elite goaltending and the weapons up front to score goals in clutch situations. Also working in the team’s favor is the fact that the majority of the players on the current roster were part of the team that won it all in 2011, which means they have the experience to know what it takes.

This Bruins’ team has already faced a ton of adversity this sports betting season, and there really is no denying that no team has been through more in terms of what they have lived through in the city of Boston. The fact that the Bruins have been able to forge through these events has only made them stronger as a team, and now the focus shifts to the playoffs and providing their fans with a reason to cheer again. The spirit of the city is emboldened in the way the team plays on the ice – a tough, physical bunch that never backs down. From Milan Lucic to Shawn Thornton, Adam McQuaid to the monster and captain Zdeno Chara on the back end, this Boston team is built to battle.

In addition to all of their team toughness, the Bruins also have the weapons to score goals. Boston ranked 13th in goals per game, which is even more impressive when you consider how defensively responsible they were as the third-ranked team in goals per game allowed. Brad Marchand emerged as the team’s leading scorer with 18 goals, working on a line with Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron. The top line of Lucic, David Krejci, and Nathan Horton was the perfect mix of size and scoring ability, and those two lines will lead the Bruins in to the postseason.

One more key element that will make Boston such a tough playoff team is its elite goaltending. While it goes largely unrecognized, Tuukka Rask emerged to rank among the league’s elite netminders with a 1.94 goals against average. The online betting critics are quick to dismiss that number as being more about the tough team defense that the Bruins played in front of Rask, but while that is part of the equation, Rask’s .931 save percentage ranked second to only Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators.

The Stanley Cup playoffs are the best time of the year for NHL fans, and for the city of Boston it will be about rallying behind their team and hoping the resilience they have shown is imitated on the ice. The Bruins are a team built to flex their muscle in the postseason, and that is why they are as dangerous as any other team heading in to the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs.
