It would’ve been really easy for the Boston Bruins to come out sluggish and unfocused against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.
With Zdeno Chara already in Sochi and four more members of the team heading there after the game, it would’ve been understandable if their heads weren’t completely in it against the Sens, but instead, the Bruins came out and played some of their best hockey. Seven players registered multipoint games as the B’s dominated the Senators 7-2 to head into the Olympic break on a positive note.
After the game, coach Claude Julien was certainly proud of his team’s effort and he was especially pleased with how they dealt with all of the distractions.
