The Boston Bruins put aside the mediocre effort they displayed when they played the Colorado Avalanche twice last week with a solid showing last night with a 6-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes. The Bruins have now won ten straight games against the Desert Dogs and look to continue last night’s success when they play the new Las Vegas Golden Knights franchise for the first time tonight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Although, there were many highlight goals that could be mentioned during the offensive beatdown the B’s gave the Yotes last night, one rookie player on this Bruins team deserves an honorable mention for getting his first National Hockey League goal. It only took four games for Anders Bjork to notch his first career goal and it was a beauty late in the third period as the young talented winger fires a power-play goal past Coyotes netminder Louis Domingue from the right offensive circle after a creative pass through traffic from fellow rookie Jake DeBrusk. These two players connected back on October, 5th, during the seasons first game against the Nashville Predators at TD Garden when Bjork was the primary assist on DeBrusk’s first career goal.

Below are some Tweets from fans and hockey writers about the accomplishment of the young player with tremendous upside.

Bruins get a PP. Jake DeBrusk works it thru traffic cross-ice to a wide open Anders Bjork on backdoor. He slams home for 1st career NHL goal
