Once again it was three up, and three down for the Bruins. Wins over the Devils, Blue Jackets and a shutout of the Islanders wrapped up another perfect week for the Bruins.
As has been the case of late, we had a few solid candidates for Bruins Daily player of the week, but one Bruin really opened my eyes.
Chris Kelly is a guy who has done what has been asked of him, and then some since coming over from Ottawa last season. As a third line grinder Kelly has some pop in his stick, and has shown that this season.
Kelly led the Bruins this past week with three goals and an assist, two of the three goals came in Saturday’s shutout of the Islanders.
Kelly (13 points) is on pace to exceed his career high of 38 points.
