Bruins Gaining Swagger, Expect to Win Every Game

Shawn OwensAnalyst IOctober 16, 2016

The Boston Bruins (14-4-4, 32 points, first in the Northeast Conference) coming off of a loss the other night in Buffalo (first loss in a month) are primed to get back on track.

They are going up against a busy two days in which they play a rare 12 p.m. game on November 28 at the TD Bank North Garden against the New York Islanders. The team will then play November 29 against the Detroit Red Wings to finish back to back games.

In Buffalo, Coach Claude Julien said his Bruins played "Okay". But, Okay isn't going to win a team hockey games in the NHL. 

The game against the Islanders will be our first look at how the team will rebound from a game in which they just couldn't get going.  

The Sabres game was a good lesson to the Bruins: all of their opponents will be playing to win and come after them game in and game out. The Sabres were a desperate club trying to break a five game losing streak. They came out and threw everything they had at the B's, who just didn't respond.

Julien has a good club that is starting to take on the swagger that they are going to win every game. That is good. It all starts with attitude.
