Since the inception of the salary cap, talk has always surrounded the inability to keep together the dynasty. In Boston, it’s looking like we could be on the verge of seeing something special.
Personally, I’ve never been one to jump the gun. When the Bruins were dominating the League throughout November, I wondered often how long it could really last. When they finished the month without a regulation loss, I didn’t think it was a mirage, but maybe the result of one of those incredible hot streaks we see teams go on throughout the season year in and year out. Then December came, and the Bruins continued to win.
It’s January 9th. The Boston Bruins record is 27-10-1. Since the end of an October that saw every hockey fan scratching their head as to what was “wrong” in Boston, the Bruins have gone 24-3-1.
That’s good, right?
