The Bruins have been dominating much of this season, but it took their sixth win in a row to finally push them to where they belong — first place.
After overcoming two early goals by the Tampa Bay Lightning, the B’s find themselves atop the Northeast Division standings with the Montreal Canadiens waiting to knock them off their perch. That game comes Sunday, so Boston won’t have much time to enjoy their wild comeback victory over the Bolts.
Still, thanks in large part to the Brad Marchand–Patrice Bergeron–Tyler Seguin line, the Bruins are winners again. That’s why NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding those three our “Storm Back” player of the game award.
