Boston Bruins Look to Extend Streak Against San Jose Sharks: Fan Preview
The Boston Bruins appear to be back on track, at least temporarily after their solid 8-0 throttling of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday, March 19. The win marked the Bruins' second straight victory, which doesn't typically mean much, but is huge given how much the team has struggled for over a month.
"I think it's maintaining what we've done over the last couple of games. Our last road trip wasn't a very good one, so we have to make sure we get a better one out of this one," coach Claude Julien said. "We're going into a territory where there's a lot of desperation, so we certainly going to have some good challenges."
While Boston is trying to maintain its position as the No. 2 team in the Eastern Conference, San Jose sits at No. 10 over in the Western Conference. Over there, just three points separate the No. 7 team from the No. 11 team. And I thought we had it bad as Bruins' fans this season.
