Haggerty: 2nd line has been carrying Bruins
You've got a guy like Bergeron doing such a great job downing your own end. Puck gets out quicker. And then when you have those guys on his -- you. Founders -- -- there's a pretty good contact going on so that's a good line for us and I think all three of them deserve a lot of credit. I'm not -- that's. These are inside access to check -- with Mike GRD and CS NNE dot com Bruins insider Joseph Hagerty had guys. Actually trash out in the history of this rivalry joke the Bruins and the Maple Leafs. The Bruins have never won eight in a row against them why continually mentally and show up here ardent Bruins go up there and the -- handle. This is the bad matchup now it early on it was a terrible leaves team against a very good Bruins team but I think it's even more than that now is they're pretty good now. The Maple -- but the match up problems that the Bruins give them. They just can't handle Phil -- continues to be -- ghost. Against the Boston bruins' Zdeno Chara is his worst nightmare. Enough continues to be a horrendous defense against the Boston Bruins it was a minus three tonight. Horrible coverage on the first goals of the Bruins scored was a minus ten against -- last year six games. You just cannot stop the top six forwards. The Boston Bruins what happens in these games. Patrice Bergeron Tyler Sagan Brad Marchand David Krejci Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton run roughshod. Over the Toronto Maple Leafs defense and when you have guys like Deion for north enough Corbin in halls of the immortal Corbin in halls are. Playing defense your top defenseman -- guess what you're gonna lose again. You brought up these first two lines and now the second line is really your first line -- first line is tiger's second. The way that that trio of Bergeron and Marchand. And -- in Atlanta -- -- go off the chart. Tonight their shoulders are starting to hurt because they carry the team I mean that's essentially that's what it's come down to write you know you're talking about twelve goals in the last nine. If that line has produced 36 points. They're the ones that are filling it up full power play in five on five and they've been getting it done while blood that preaching it's important. Has gone through a little bit of a slow period it was nice to get the goal from David Krejci on the rebounding Grady wanted to kind of get them going but that other -- has been. I get on the puck using their speed and there and Brad Marchand is newfound ability to just finish everything that he shoots. In order power of the team's offense because right now it's a top heavy team with those two lines to and everything in the other two lines not doing much of anything. Very quickly talk about the trade deadline but the Bruins may make an acquisition here soon. That doesn't require any movement of players out of Boston. Yeah I confirmed to the Bruins source that they are indeed talking to -- soderbergh's camp that's a guy the Swedish mystery man -- compared to bigfoot in the yet in the -- like this months or so much -- exists but he's a Swedish prospect that they actually got an honor to wave and in trade. With the saint Louis blues a zillion years ago he's been very reluctant to come to North America very reluctant to play in the NHL. But the Bruins are talking to his camp bought him coming to Boston. After the Swedish elite league playoffs are over his thirty goals sixty points and six foot three but 210215. Pounds. He is a beast an offensive player he could help them if they can get him indeed at peace on the third line.
