NHL preseason is ongoing which has ‘Boston Bruins’ also participating in the tournament.
Many do not view the Boston Bruins as a real Stanley Contender
Why? Because they were capable of passing the second round of playoffs only once since 2013 otherwise they always failed.
Last season they were thrown out of the tournament by getting eliminated in Game 7 of the 1st round by the Carolina Hurricanes.
Many of the team members are playing in their 30s. Bergeron is about 37 year old and will begin his 19th season. Though he scored 20+ goals in 9 seasons and won the Selke Trophy last year in 2021. Another member, Marchard, is 34 year old and had hip surgery.
The Boston Bruins team depend heavily on their veteran players like David Pastrnak, Hampus Lindholm, and Charlie McAvoy
