Boston had to open the season on a four-game road trip, traveling to Dallas, Arizona, Las Vegas and Colorado over the first week of the new year. They started 3-0 and just missed the perfect road trip thanks to a loss to the Avalanche on Thursday night, but as they host the Devils on Saturday, Bruins fans can feel good about how their team has looked following a Stanley Cup Final loss.
Many were worried about a Stanley Cup Hangover negatively impacting at least the first half of this season for the Bruins, so it has to be a good sign moving forward that they're seemingly refusing a sluggish start out of the gate.
The puck drops for Bruins vs Devils at 7 p.m. EST at TD Garden, kicking off a three-game homestand for Boston that will feature the Anaheim Ducks and Tampa Bay Lightning after New Jersey comes to town.
