Sometimes, there are times when a detailed game summary just doesn’t do what happened any justice.
Tonight’s 1-0 Boston Bruins win over the Tampa Bay Lightning was one of those.
60 minutes of frenetic pace and no goals…Jonas Gustavsson stood on his head in the third period as the B’s were outshot 15-5. Another solid, mature and effective game from rookie Noel Acciari.
On the overtime center ice faceoff, Patrice Bergeron to Torey Krug…Krug to Bergeron…Bergeron to Brad Marchand on the 2-on-1 break, shot…score…his 34th- good for 3rd in the NHL in goals behind Alexander Ovechkin and Patrick Kane. Game over.
Bruins now have a share of first place in the Atlantic Division and have gone 7-2-1 in their last 10 games to keep their competition in the rearview. This was a huge statement win, a character win. I’ll be back with more later, but wow- let’s just let this one sink in for the night.
I’ll let Brian, Angus and the boys carry it home…
