THIS WEEK'S NEWS, NOTES AND NUMBERS…
STAT OF THE WEEK: The Bruins' five-goal third period outburst in their 6-4 comeback win at Carolina on March 13 marked their third five-goal period of the season, the most since the 1979-80 season, when they totaled four. During the comeback, David Pastrnak notched a hat trick in 7:26, the fastest hat trick by a Bruins player since Martin Lapointe scored three goals in 5:15 exactly 15 years prior on March 13, 2003 versus the New Jersey Devils.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "With this team…we are never out of a game. The character in the room, it's come through all year long. It just kind of feels on the bench, when we get a goal, we just kind of start to take over." - Brad Marchand after the team's 6-4 comback win at Carolina
TWEET OF THE WEEK (WEEK 27): @DaleEArnold (Dale Arnold, NESN): Two goals after the crowd belts out "Livin' On a Prayer." Coincidence? You be the judge. #Bruins - 3/10 vs. Chicago
