Last night, the Boston Bruins lost to the Winnipeg Jets. It was the Bruins’ first loss in regulation since October. In November, Boston went 12-1 with a single shootout loss to the Red Wings. On Monday, they beat Pittsburgh 3-1. Right now, those are the two top seeds in the East.
Late in the third things got testy between the teams as some Penguins made contact with the face of the franchise, Tim Thomas. Gregory Campbell and Joe Vitale got away from the scrum and engaged in one of the best fights of the season. Boston’s favorite hockey voice, Jack Edwards lost his mind. It was spectacular.
