The Bruins’ long month ahead

The Boston Bruins will look to add-on to their four-game win-streak after this Olympic break as they kick things off at the TD Garden on Tuesday, Mar. 2 against the Montreal Canadiens. This will be the two rivals’ fifth of six total meetings on the season; with just one-point separates the seventh-place B’s [65] to the eighth-place Habs [64].

March is by far busiest month of the season for the Black-and-Gold, with 16 games scheduled in the 31 calendar days. They will have their longest road trip of the year — seven games in 11-days — through Long Island, Pittsburgh, Toronto, The City of Brotherly Love, Montreal, New Jersey, and Carolina.

The B’s will be playing in three sets of back-to-back games [the sets 13-15 of 17  total sets on the season]: the Mar. 6 at the Islanders and Mar. 7 against the Penguins; Mar. 15 at New Jersey and Mar. 16 at Carolina; followed by a two-game home-stand against the Sabres on the Mar. 29 and Mar. 30 against the Devils to put an end to the month.

There will be an even-split of eight home-games and eight away. Boston will play Eastern Conference opponents in 15-of-16 games in March, five Northeast Divisional games, and the Calgary Flames being  the lone Western Conference opponent. Although Boston stands-alone in seventh-place in the Eastern Conference, the log-jam between the sixth-place Flyers [67] and 11th-place Thrashers [62] carries on. So needless to say, the Bruins need to keep the same momentum coming back from this Olympic break as they did entering it.
