By request from one of my readers, I have decided to give a few updates on the Bruins since hockey playoffs started this week. I am admittedly a fair weather hockey fan for the Boston Bruins, but I assume that some of my other readers would also enjoy hearing more about them.
The Bruins embarked on their playoff journey on Thursday and had a close 2-1 loss against the Sabres in Buffalo. The Sabres drew blood first with a goal by Vanek near the end of the first period, and soon after with a goal early in the second period scored by Rivet. The Bruins fought back and Recchi scored a goal in the second period, but were unable to tie up the game ever. Here are the highlights from game one.
Then this afternoon the Bruins redeemed themselves with a 5-3 win against the Sabres in Buffalo, to even the series at 1-1. Again the Sabres came out aggressively with Ellis and Myers both scoring in the first period, and Pominville scoring early in the second period. Luckily, they would not score again, creating the opportunity for an amazing come back by the Bruins in which they would go on a 5-0 scoring run to win the game. Chara and Ryder started things off, both scoring in the second period, followed by Recchi early in the third to tie up the game. Chara and Ryder would both score again later in the third period to seal the victory. Here are the highlights for game 2.
Game 3 will be played in Boston on Monday night at 7 p.m.
