Have the planets aligned for the Boston Bruins this year or what? It seems like every other day I am writing about how Kessel, Lucic, Savard or Krejci put up another great performance. However, so far I haven’t given Calder Trophy candidate his due. Wheeler has been spectacular in his rookie campaign. He scored another two goals last night including a highlight reel goal where he beat one defenseman with a sweet spin-o-rama move, deked another, then juked out the goalie before depositing the puck. The 2 goals gave Wheeler a respectable 20 points on the season, but even more impressive is his +19 rating, good enough to tie him for 3rd in the league in that category.
Haven’t seen the footage from Blake Wheeler’s incredible goal against the Blues? Check out the video below:
