After just three goals and six assists in 37 games with the Stars last season, Reilly had 30 points in his first 38 games for Boston.
“It’s kind of interesting to watch it and for me to follow it. Reilly came out flying, he was really hot and then it became Marchand and now it’s Bergeron,” Brendan said. “It’s like they’re all taking their turn to get that limelight. ... It’s a good line and it’s impressive to see that Reilly’s done so well.”
Even though Reilly went cold late in the season, he still finished sixth on the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Bruins in scoring.
The brothers credit their parents for their success.
“The drive and all they’ve done for us and how they’ve brought us up from young guys, I think that’s the main reason why we’ve been successful,” he said. “We always wanted to be professional and play in the NHL and we were fortunate to do that. And I think that’s something our parents instilled in us was that drive.”
