Some interesting Bruins Stats

I haven't really noticed because of the crappiness I am used to, but the Bruins are one of the best teams in the NHL right now.

Overall, they are the 12th best team in the league, with fewer games played that anyteam in the NHL (23).

They are 6th in the Eastern Conference (but 1 point away from MTL who has 2 more games played than Boston.

They have allowed the 3rd fewest goals, behind St. Louis (52) and (54), but San Jose has played 1 more game.

The offense which we think has been slow, has forced 62 goals, that is 6th worst in the league, BUT, most teams are within 60-70 goals, so the difference is minor. And Ottawa, arguably the league's best offense, has scored 78 goals, only 16 more than the Bruins.

The Bruins have the 3rd least amount of losses in the league at 8.

They also have the 3rd least amount of SOL/OTL (2).

Marc Savard leads the league in assists with names like Lecalvier, St. Louis, Thornton, Crosby.

And the Bruins have done all this without Patrice Bergeron.

Tim Thomas leads the league in SV % (.940) and is 5th in the league with GAA (2.05).
