B’s showing more grit than goals this season

Last week’s dramatic victory in the Winter Classic was a good summary of the Bruins’ season so far: What they’ve lacked in offensive firepower, they’ve made up for with sheer grit.

But the B’s, who entered last night with a division-low 107 goals, can’t keep relying on Tuukka Rask, Tim Thomas and deflected goals if they hope to challenge Buffalo.

That’s why the Bruins picked up ex-Sabre Miroslav Satan, formerly a consistent 30-goal scorer whose stats have taken a dive in recent seasons.

If Satan, who made his B’s debut last night, proves to be a strong finisher, GM Peter Chiarelli could end up looking like a genius — and Boston will be well-stocked for a run in the playoffs.
