TBL Player of the Night

Well the Bruins continued their stellar road trip with their 5th straight win in Edmonton last night, capping off their sweep of the Western Canadian teams and running their current win streak to five. There were probably a handful of guys that the TBL player of the night award could have gone to in the B’s 3-2 win last night. Rich Peverly probably had his best game in a B’s uniform last night and scorer his first goal for Boston. Looch dropped the gloves for the first time in a while with a pretty tough customer in Jim Vandermeer in what was a pretty entertaining bout. Marchand even got into the action by dropping the gloves.

The award for last night, though, has to go to Nathan Horton, who had his best game in quite a while. Horton’s been sort of an enigma in his first year with Boston so far. After starting the year absolutely on fire he settled into a pretty maddening pattern of inconsistency. He has started to find his game again though, as of late, and his goal last night was his second in as many nights/games. On top of that, he made Theo Peckham drop the gloves after a high hit on David Krejci and promptly handed the Oiler a beat down. He was emotionally engaged all night long and if he continues to play like that he will be a very important player in the home stretch and playoffs. It also doesn’t hurt that his wife is a complete smoke show.
