This week’s Beast of the Beasts, after much deliberation is forward Brian Rolston. Currently the 6′ 2″, 215lb right wing has points in his last six straight games. He has registered 3 goals and 9 assists for 12 points.
Since coming to Boston Rolston has posted three goals and ten assists in just 16 games played. Adding that to his statistics from the Islanders, he has 7 goals and 15 assists totaling 22 points in 65 games.
There is no doubt that the addition of Rolston has helped boost the morale of the third line, with line mates Chris Kelly and Benoit Pouliot having their fair share in the spot light as well. To say they have made or break the Bruins games as of late would be quite accurate.
“My line has put up some points the last couple games, and that’s a great thing. I think we have good chemistry as a line as well…Well Kells, he’s a player that plays in every dimension of the game,” Rolston said. “He’s great defensively, he can make things happen offensively – he’s a pleasure to play with. Benny I know a little bit about him and what he brings, he’s a tremendously talented kid and I just think we’re supporting each other well and we’re building a little bit of chemistry. But it’s a lot of fun to play with these two guys.”-Brian Rolston (via Bruins Official Site)
