Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Haggerty of NECN,
Here’s what the B’s Captain said back on Oct. 29:
“I believe in this team. I know what we have,” (Zdeno) Chara said. “I know we are in a deep hole but if anybody can get out of it, it’s this team.”
It was the last time the Bruins have tasted the bitterness of defeat this season, and they’ve now won nine games in a row after a 1-0 victory over the Canadiens in their own backyard.
The Bruins were far from good. They got outshot by a 32-18 margin through the three periods, but hot goaltending play and sound defense trumped tough nights from Boston’s skill guys at the forward position.
“We played a little on our heels tonight,” said Claude Julien. “We weren’t very good on the walls, and I thought they were the better team in an area we’re usually pretty good at. What I liked is that we found a way to win, defensively we weren’t that bad and Tim [Thomas] was huge for us.”
The nine-game winning streak is the longest for the B’s since a 10-game win streak that ended in January 2009, and should finally signal that the Stanley Cup champs are back where they need to be.
