Throughout this 12 game stretch the Bruins have also had players in and out of the lineup on a nightly basis due to both minor injuries and sickness. Almost immediately after that night against Pittsburgh, the Bruins would have the flu make its way around the already depleted roster. Somehow the team weathered these injuries and sicknesses to go 8-4. Even more impressive they did this while playing 7 of the 12 games on the road.
On a side note the Bruins have accumulated 56 points in 41 games which matches their point total for 41 games last season.
