But, boy, have we been there before. After back-to-back wins in the first week of March, the Bruins proceeded to lose four games in a row, three of which were on the road.
Now the Bruins are headed into a stretch of road games out west. They are scheduled to face San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim before returning to the Garden for matchups with the Lightning and Capitals.
The three-game road trip could prove favorable or fatal for the Bruins' hopes for late-season momentum.
With Boston's newest acquisitions finally meshing with the rest of the team, getting away from the spotlight of the home city could give the B's a chance to solidify those bonds.
Then again, the extra travel could wear the team down with only six games left to play in the season. Worse still, the Bruins are in a tight race for first place in the division and home ice advantage in the playoffs. A loss of focus, energy or momentum because of the road trip could mean a tougher postseason opponent in an unfriendly arena.
Needless to say, the stakes are high. With such intensity, The Instigators should have a lot to look forward to during the home stretch of the regular season. But you still have a chance to be a part of the conversation. Write in to have Billy, Barry and the gang answer your questions.
