Bruins enjoying excellent start
Thirty-one seasons have passed since Boston last won the Stanley Cup, so Bruins fans are a skeptical bunch.
So a 4-1-1 road trip and four-game winning streak, which included victories over Western Conference powers Colorado and Dallas and comeback wins over Los Angeles and Anaheim, isn't enough to convince Boston fans that this team will be different. And after Boston's lackluster 2-0 loss to Carolina on Thursday night, the 12,104 who bothered to show up at FleetCenter might consider giving up the keys to the bandwagon.
