It's been a short road trip out in the Western part of the United States, as the Bruins will play their third game in four nights, taking on the Anaheim Ducks tonight in California.
They looked to be in a bout of trouble in their first game against the San Jose Sharks, showing a lack of consistency and poise. They fell 2-1 in that game.
However, last night, they took a 4-2 win against the Kings, showing obvious improvements from the previous game. Brad Marchand had a two point game, picking up the empty netter with just one second left to go in the game and setting up Patrice Bergeron very nicely for a shorthanded goal--the Bruins' first goal of the game-- in the second period.
As their +36 goal differential in the third period alone would dictate, they play very well in the final frame, and showed that skill last night. They picked up three goals, including the empty netter, to seal the deal over the Kings and come out with two points against former Division leaders.
That loss dropped L.A. a point behind Dallas and Phoenix in the standings.
Tonight, the Bruins will face the Ducks who, despite being last in the division, have won their last two games, including wins against the St. Louis Blues and the Sharks.
The puck drops at 8 p.m. EDT and the game will be broadcast live on NESN and aired on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
