NHL back to work for the March sprint after Olympics

With the Olympic games ending Sunday, it’s back to work for the Bruins and the rest of the NHL.

The final month of the NHL season will be a sprint to the finish and into the playoffs.

In March alone, the Bruins will play 17 games in 30 days, a run that includes six back-to-back contests.

“When you play that often you can get on a roll and if you do that you can have a really good month and we wanna focus on trying to do that and like I said carry that into the playoffs,” said forward Brad Marchand.

Many of the Bruins will be coming home with medals, including Tuukka Rask with a bronze for Finland and Patrice Bergeron with a gold for Canada. Loui Eriksson also took home the silver for Sweden.

The Bruins are already getting prepared for the next round of games with a practice on Saturday, which was the team’s third day of practice.
