The Boston Bruins are facing a tough decision as veteran forward JVR continues to struggle on the ice.

With a dismal record of 0 goals, 0 assists, and 0 points in 18 of his last 19 games, his drought is alarming.

Despite tallying 38 points in 70 games this season, his recent form is concerning, especially with the playoffs looming.

If JVR fails to rediscover his form soon, the Bruins may have no choice but to bench him, opting for fresher options to bolster their lineup.


JVR now 0-0--0 in 18 of his last 19 games.


As the postseason approaches, the Bruins are left with little room for sentimentality in their quest for success.
