The Bruins look pretty good for a last place team, definitely better than Winnipeg. Wait, Winnipeg?!?

Because of their Stanley Cup hangover induced 2-7 start, the Bruins have just 16 points, which ties them for last in the Adams Northeast Division with the Hartford Whalers Canadiens.  But, the B’s also look like the best team in the NHL right now.  They’ve won 5 games in a row improving to 8-7, while averaging 6 goals a game during the streak.  Their goal differential...
