The Bruins tore it up during the middle frame of their four-game work week, but unfortunately couldn’t close out the Leafs in Toronto last night before heading home for a three-game homestand.
After a horrendous loss to the Atlanta Thrashers last Sunday afternoon, Boston wound-up gaining five points in four games this week, posting a 2-1-1 record.
Here are four solid choices for the Boston Bruins’ player of the week for Nov. 28 – Dec. 4. And as always, feel free to choose ‘other’
and write in your top performer.
Michael Ryder: 1-4-5 in four games with a plus-4 rating. Ryder is now tied for third on the team with 17 points, third in goals (7), and tied for first with 3 power play goals.
David Krejci: Posted 2-2-4 and a plus-6 rating in three games this week — missing the game versus Atlanta on Sunday with the flu. Krejci now has 16 points (4 goals) in 18 games this season with the Black-and-Gold.
Milan Lucic: An empty-netter in Philly helped Lucic post 2-2-4, a plus-4 rating, and 10 shots on goal in four games this week. The 22-year-old remains the team-leader in goals (12) and points (22), and second overll in plus-minus (+14).
Tim Thomas: If it weren’t for Thomas, last night’s 3-2 shootout loss to the Leafs wouldn’t have been nearly as close. The front-runner for the 2010-11 Vezina Trophy went 2-0-1 in his last three consecutive starts for Boston — including his league-leading fifth shutout — holding down an amazing .975 save-percentage and 0.97 goals-against average for the week. On the season, Thomas tops the charts among all NHL netminders in all individual categories: save-percentage (.956), goals-against average (1.46), shutouts (5), and third in wins (13).
