BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Bruins are on a scorching-hot run--and they'll be back to work Tuesday.
Tim Schaller scored a short-handed goal in the Bruins' 5-3 win in New Jersey last night, and said he hopes the team can keep it up.
"As a character statement, it shows that we have a lot of fight in the room, and at this point in the season, that's going to take us the long way," he said.
B's responded well to a home loss a night earlier to the Sabres and now have points in 23 of 25 - including an absurd 19 wins.
Boston's run has moved the club within three points of Tampa Bay for the top spot in the NHL.
And there's more good news--Bruins are getting healthier!
Second-year forward Noel Acciari returned to the lineup yesterday after a lower body injury cost him the previous seven games.
"I felt good," Acciari said. "A lot better than I thought I'd feel, so that's a good sign."
Acciari skated 13-and-a-half minutes and handed out a couple hits.
The Bruins will host the Flames tomorrow. Calgary's hot, too. Not as hot as Boston, but they've had wins in 4 of 5 and points in 15 of 18 since New Year's Eve.
And if you're keeping an eye on the NHL trade deadline - that's two weeks away.
