Even the 6-1 score doesn't reflect how much better the Bruins were than the Black Hawks. In particular, it was stunning to see how much production that we got from the top 2 lines:
Bergeron 1 goal, 1 asst
Marchand 3 assts
DeBrusk 1 goal
Krejci 1 goal
Pastrnak 2 goals
Hall 1 goal
6 goals from the top 2 lines. And to be honest, the Hall, Pastrnak, Krejci line looks better to me than the Bergeron line. Hall is finally playing to his full potential (works hard every shift) and Krecjci in my opinion has always been underrated. Throw Pastrnak in the mix and you have a dominant line.
Then you have McAvoy getting 4 assists. Wow. And the fourth line all got 1 assist each (Nick Foligno–Tomas Nosek–A.J. Greer).
The Bruins are shutting up a lot of local sports talk personalities. Pretty soon those types will be saying they are peaking too early. I am not sure I believe in the peak too early theory but the Bruins likely won't stay this hot the whole season. Then the sports talk will be see, we were right, we told you they couldn't keep it up all season.
