The 2017-18 NHL season is a quarter of the way through. While there are plenty of games to be played, we can now start to see which teams will be in the playoff hunt in a few months, and which teams may be already looking ahead to next season
The NHL season is just about a quarter of the way complete, my boys in Black and Gold are doing... well, okay I suppose. The Bruins own an 8-7-4 record (20 points) and sit in fifth place in a top-heavy Atlantic division. Not an ideal start to the season, but when I consider the elephant in the room, I'll surely take it. The elephant here being, of course, the injuries. I hate to make injuries seem like an excuse for average play in any sport, but in this case it's pretty hard to make a claim to the contrary.
