With their exciting 6-5novertime win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, the Bruins as of press time Wednesday, boast a league-leading record of 9-1-0 (18 points), and although tied in points with Bruce Cassidy’s Vegas Golden Knights in points – Vegas has played one more game. Hampus Lindholm’s OT goal brought the locals back from a two-goal deficit to victory, with the only downside in the game being a possible lower-body injury to goaltender Jeremy Swayman. Tonight’s (Thursday) game will have the Bruins continuing their four-game road trip, being hosted by the New York Rangers (7:00pm), finishing the trip with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday at 7:00pm.
