The Bruins have 26 games remaining this season but none will be a harder test than the next 11. More than half those games will be played on the road while 7 of those 11 teams currently sit in a playoff spot. Those teams include The defending Champs Vegas Golden Knights, The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Edmonton Oilers, not once but twice.

The Bruins have exceeded expectations this season by a long-shot being as most experts saw them dropping substantially in the rankings this season due to the loss of many significant players. Some of those players include Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Tyler Bertuzzi, Taylor Hall and Dmitry Orlov.

Even though the team has struggled as of late, going 2-5 over their last 7 games they still sit with the 3rd best record in the NHL this season.

The team has had problems defensively in recent games while notable players such as Jake Debrusk has not scored in his last 9 games. However, The team has brought up some interesting additions from Providence such as Justin Brazeau and Mason Lohrei in the past few days to shake things up a bit.


This difficult stretch of games starts Wednesday night against the Edmonton Oilers, it will be interesting to see how the Bruins come out of this 11 game stretch and will give the fans a good idea of what this team could do in the playoffs.
