Katie Baker's Coldhearted: On Patrice Bergeron, the Bruins, and the rest of the week in the NHL - Grantland
The Bruins won last night 9-0. In their last home game they won 8-0. Their last road game they won 6-1. They lead the league with 11 games of scoring 6 or more goals. The Penguins are second on that list with 4 games with 6 or more goals. Boston also leads the league in goals against per game, Tuukka Rask leads the league in GAA and SV% and Tim Thomas is 3rd and 2nd in those categories respectively. Gross.
