But the X factor here, frankly, is that the Bruins are winning, and they are doing so with a very slim margin. For the most part, that margin is: 1. goaltending and 2. Claude Julien’s coaching.
For the few goals the team scored in the first quarter (51 in 20 games), it didn’t have much business owning an 11-7-2 record. Even average netminding by Thomas would have had the Bruins in a struggle to be 9-9-2 (right where they were through 20 games last season). Less-than-average netminding by Thomas, and they’re somewhere around 6-12-2, keeping company with the Capitals at the bottom of the barrel.
