Five Bruins takeaways from first quarter of NHL season originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Bruins deserve a lot of credit for how they've played through the first quarter of the 2020-21 NHL season.

The B's sit atop the East Division with a 10-2-2 record and a four-point cushion over the second-place Philadelphia Flyers.

Boston is no stranger to strong regular seasons. The Bruins won the Presidents' Trophy last season and finished second in the Atlantic Division in the prior two years. This team will ultimately be judged on its Stanley Cup Playoff success, but there's a lot to be encouraged about so far in 2021.
