Everything you need to know from the Bruins’ 6-1 win over the Wild in quickie form, with BSJ insight and analysis:

Box Score


Special teams stand out: You think the Bruins enjoyed their time off? Just 24 hours after the Bruins relied on a stout PK (6-for-6) and quick-strike man advantage (2-for-4) to post a win up in Winnipeg, the script remained the same for Boston on Saturday night at the Xcel Energy Center. Boston’s power play once again did most of the heavy lifting against the Wild — as the B’s man-advantage lit the lamp three times during the second period to pace the club to a 6-1 victory in Minnesota. 

Torey Krug led the way with four points (two goals, two assists) and four other skaters posted multipoint nights for the Bruins, who improve to 31-10-12 on the season. Along with Boston’s 3-for-4 showing on the power play, the PK unit has now killed off all 10 penalties that have come its way since returning from the All-Star break.
