The Boston Bruins entered the 3rd period with a 3-2 lead. That wouldn’t be the final score. Boston got manhandled in the final period.
It looked like the Boston Bruins were going to start their road trip off with a victory. They head all the momentum and the lead, but then the 3rd period happened.
The Bruins played 2 periods of quality hockey but that isn’t enough to win a hockey game.
There was one thing that I fell the Bruins need to take care of. They need to have some sort of enforcer on the ice.

We saw David Pastrnak and other players take some big hits. I don’t understand why some of the Bruins 4th liners or defenseman can let it be known that this won’t be tolerated. Boston may be getting some help with Kevan Miller returning to the lineup soon.
So let’s take a look at my 3 takeaways from the Bruins collapse against the Colorado Avalanche.
1. Jake DeBrusk is on a tear
Jake DeBrusk has been playing great as of late. He continued his scoring outburst on Wednesday night. DeBrusk scored 2 goals and was on top of his game.
DeBrusk has played great as of late. In his last 4 games, he has 4 goals and an assist. DeBrusk skates hard and is willing to do whatever is necessary to help the Bruins.
On DeBrusk’s 2nd goal he was playing in front of the net and deflected a David Pastrnak slapshot from the point to give a 3-1 lead.
Jake DeBrusk’s play has helped take the pressure off of the top line. Hopefully, he will continue to light the lamp.
