#ReillySmithforCanadianOlympicTeam

The Bruins exploded for 6 goals tonight, getting 2 from Jarome Iginla and 1 each from Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser (first as a Bruin), Carl Soderberg, and Brad Marchand.  Ryan Spooner had 3 assists and played like an absolute beast along with Reilly, who is making everyone look at the Seguin trade very differently.

It was an all around great night for the Bruins, as none other than Patrice Bergeron was the only guy in the first three lines to not register a point.  (I guess that means he sucks.)  Tuukka stopped 32 of 34 for a SV% of .941, and he’s back on track after not looking absolutely elite for a grand total of maybe four games.  The B’s did get outshot 34-29, which usually doesn’t suggest a 6-2 blowout or anything close, but the fact remains that the Bruins took their opportunities and made the most of them, including going 3-3 on the power play.  Sure, that will regress a ton, but it’s a clear sign that this isn’t the 2011 team’s power play.

And Jack Edwards sang Christmas Carols on air.

Hell of a way to go into the Christmas break for the B’s.
