Bruins Game 57 recap: Is this what rock bottom looks like?

So whatever. Trade rumors flying, the Bruins playoff spot slowly slipping away and a three-game losing streak to start this five-game road trip with two more games against two of the best teams in the league. And a loss against the second-worst team in the NHL. Not to mention that the only thing that prevented a win tonight was the baffling failure to score even once in 12 shootout rounds before a random Oiler whose name appears to have already been lost to time put a puck past Tuukka Rask. Thinking about it a little more, maybe rock bottom is going to come after those games against two of the best teams in the league.

I can’t make this sound nice. The Bruins are still in the playoffs, assuming that they started today. They’re playing horribly though and it seems as if that’s going to continue until something changes. Whatever that change happens to be won’t be known for days, perhaps. Or we’ll all wake up to the news that half the team has been shipped off for spare parts. At this point some sort of “look guys we’re doing something” move is inevitable, when and what that move turns out to be is up in the air. Like I said though, they just lost their third straight game of this road trip to the second-worst team in the league.

The Bruins will try it all again against the Blues on Friday night. Maybe their luck is bound to change for at least a night? We can hope.
