WILMINGTON, MA - A little after noon on Wednesday morning, at the Bruins’ practice rink Ristuccia Arena, Loui Eriksson went to battle in the corner behind Tuukka Rask.
The B’s were in the midst of five-on-five battling drills at one end of the ice. Eriksson was joined by Patrice Bergeron and Jordan Caron for the shift, which consisted of constant forechecking and pressure along the boards.
Just when it looked as if the puck would be cleared out of the zone, the trio didn’t give up. It ended with Bergeron keeping it in the zone and the burying it from the slot. Stick taps broke out from the group.
It gave a glimpse at the compete level the Bruins are currently looking for consistently in their game. Right now, they’ve picked up just three points in their past five games, with their only win coming in the shootout over Anaheim.
