In the five games since the NHL trade deadline, the Bruins have given up only seven goals. They've also won seven consecutive games overall.
The defense, maligned at the deadline by some as too young and not good enough to win a Stanley Cup, has been remarkable.
"I don't think anyone was down on them," Mike Milbury told Michael Felger on Cross Check. "I don't think you can throw this group together as young as they are and inexperienced as they are and expect them to win seven consecutive games. That's a testament to them and to this scouting staff and coaching staff getting those kids ready."
