The Boston Bruins currently sit at the top of the NHL standings. Their performance on the ice has succeeded everyone's expectations. By looking at players statistics in every position and the role that every player has, it would not be difficult to see why they will finish with their third straight 100 point season.

With Ondrej Kase out on the IR, all eyes were set on newly acquired forward Nick Ritchie.
