The Boston Bruins started sloppily and once again lost up in Toronto to extend their bubble record to 0-2.
So far life in the bubble up in Toronto hasn’t been great for the Boston Bruins. After being the best team in hockey it seems like they forgot to play hockey.
On Wednesday night we saw the Bruins go up against the Tampa Bay Lightning. It was a matchup to keep an eye on even without Steven Stamkos. Boston and Tampa are two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.

Once again it wasn’t a fun night for Bruins fans as Boston ended up losing 3-2.
Now to the team’s credit, they did eventually perform better. Boston’s performance against Philadelphia was awful. Things were slightly better on Wednesday. The Bruins scored more and increased their physicality.
We saw Torey Krug drop the gloves and it sparked the team after going down 2-0. Also, we lost saw more dust-ups after the whistle.
The final thing I want to touch on is a terrible hit on Anders Bjork. Bjork was on one knee and Barclay Goodrow came through the center of the ice with a dirty hit. His elbow went right into Bjork’s head.
Goodrow only received a minor penalty but I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets a call from the Department of Player Safety. The hit is definitley worth a suspension.
So now let’s get to the 3 observations from the B’s loss on Wednesday.
