60 Games in, let's go:

1) Still 2 ppg scorers for the Bruins, being Marchand and Pastrnak. Bergeron, DeBrusk, Krejci, and McAvoy all sport .75 ppg paces or better as well. AND LET'S NOT FORGET Dmitry Orlov's totally-sustainable 132 point pace with the Bruins since joining the squad.

2) No more hope for youth joining the squad, with Hathaway and (apparently as I write this) Tyler Bertuzzi joining the club. Maybe a game at the end when everyone's resting, but maybe not even then with now 14 (when healthy) NHL forwards on the roster and 8 defensemen.

3) Linus has been a superhero for this Bruins team, and an elite goal scorer to boot. I mean, 31-4 with a sub-2 GAA and .938 save %? Ridiculous. And let's not forget Swayman, who I think has flown a bit under the radar with the team's success and Ullmark's ridiculous year. 15-4 with a 2.33 GAA (6th in the NHL among eligible goalies) and a .916 save % (tied for 11th with Juuse Saros). Good progression for a young goalie who kind of disappointed last year.

4) Over 82 games, Krejci is on pace for 19.4 goals (just shy of my predicted mark) and 70 points (well over the predicted mark). I'll take it.

5) Here's the Bruins 10-game splits since starting the year:
Games 1-10: 9-1 (W W W L W W W W W W) 18 Points
Games 11-20: 8-2 (W L W W W W W W W L) 16 Points
Games 21-30: 7-1-2 (W W W SOL W L W W SOL W) 16 Points
Games 31-40: 8-0-2 (W W W SOL W OTL W W W W) 18 Points
Games 41-50: 6-3-1 (L W W W W W W L OTL L) 13 Points, considered the "slump" of the season
Games 51-60: 9-1 (W L W W W W W W W W) 18 Points
