The Bruins might need to find a higher hockey league to play in.
They upped their record to 23-3-1 since Nov. 1 with a 9-0 drubbing of the Calgary Flames on home ice to cap off two wins in two days that featured the Bs scoring 15 unanswered goals.
Its often looked like theyre playing a video game with the settings permanently placed at rookie level with little to no resistance from their opponents.
In fact the Bruins have outscored their opponents 45-11 in the last nine games, and continue to make a statement to the rest of the league theyre the best that the NHL has to offer. Patrice Bergeron and Nathan Horton both enjoyed two-goal evenings, Benoit Pouliot matched a career-high with points while filling in for Brad Marchand and even Daniel Paille getting into the act with a shorthanded breakaway in the third period to cap things off. Twelve Bruins skaters ended up on the scoresheet for the well-rounded Bruins, and Joe Corvo had a team-best plus-4 in the blowout win.
The Flames mercifully pulled goalie Leland Irving from the game in the second period, but it didnt stop the Bruins from attacking in the third period thats been their domain all season long.
Tuukka Rask made 22 fairly easy saves en route to winning his fifth straight game and his third shutout on the young season, and the Bruins never stopped pouring it on against a whipped bunch of Calgary skaters.
President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.
At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally.
He also lamented that football has become less violent.
“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara scored late goals and the New England Revolution, with a 2-1 win, denied Toronto FC an opportunity to clinch the Supporters' Shield on Saturday.
Kamara scored the go-ahead goal in the 87th minute with a header off Nguyen's cross. The Revs (11-4-5) avoided playoff elimination and extended their undefeated streak at home against Toronto FC (18-5-8) to six games. Toronto has three matches remaining to clinch the Shield with a magic number of three points.
Nguyen opened the scoring for New England in the 82nd minute with his 50th career goal, taking Chris Tierney's lead pass from midfield and finishing through a defensive deflection.
Toronto FC's Nicolas Hasler answered two minutes later with a right-footed volley of Michael Bradley's diagonal cross.
Forwards Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore missed the match for Toronto FC, both due to lower body tightness.
