The Boston Bruins Are Playing Better

Charlie McAvoy is a player the Bruins can build around.


The Boston Bruins are playing better and the young talent is working together with the veterans. For example Charlie McAvoy is being paired with Zdeno Chara they make a great parring on the ice. When they are paired together on the ice the Boston Bruins give up 3.78 fewer shots, and  they produce more scoring chances.

McAvoy was paired with Kevan Miller and then Torey Krug in the beginning of the season. McAvoy is second in the league in playing the most minutes 41.13%. In the Bruins Predators game the other night McAvoy scored the Boston Bruins first goal and then a power-play goal in the second period. In the last six games he has five points, two goals, and three assists. He is also on a three- game point streak. It’s obvious the McAvoy is the future of the Bruins and someone you can build around.

In 25 games played this season McAvoy has scored four goals and has 15 points. Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy has said recently talking about McAvoy. “He’s only going to get better, that’s the scary part.”

The goalie situation is in question as to what the Bruins should do going forward. Anton Khudobin was pulled from the game after allowing four goals against the Predators. Rumors were that the players were playing better for Khudobin than for Rask but that’s not true as the Bruins were ghost the other night. Khudobin spoke after the game against the Predators saying. “It was a tough game…tough game. With scoring chances against, they pretty much scored on everything that they had. The one player who has really shined for the Boston Bruins is David Pastrnak who has 14 goals of the season. In 25 games he also has 10 points.

The Boston Bruins are 12-9 so far this season and are in fourth place in the Atlantic Division. The Bruins play Thursday night at home against the Arizona Coyotes.
