The Thomas and Chara Show!
Last night The Bruins beat The Hated Habs 3-1 to improve their season series record to 3-0-1!
This was a HUGE win for The B's as it put more space in the standings between them and Les Canadiens. They were also able to win with a very depleted lineup; Looch, Phil the Thrill, Bergy, Ference, Sturm and Manny were all out. These are 7 great players for the B's, not just role players out.
The Habs came out fast and furious in the 1st period as they outplayed the Bruins for most of it but The Bruins held ground with strong defensive play and some key saves from Timmy. The second period was better for The Bruins as they (Chara) scored twice to Montreal's once. The third period was even as both teams had some great chances - Timmy stole the game with 4 unbelievable saves when the score was still 2-1. Krejci then rounded out the scoring with a late goal (assisted by Ryder) to ice the game.
The Bruins played a complete team game tonight.
Hilites of the game were:
- Chara's 2 goals.
- Krejci, Wheeler and Ryder looking amazing on every shift.
- P.J. a force on the P.K. and also with some good offence moments.
- Timmy flattening Andrei Kostitsyn after his cheap shot on Ward.
- Timmy's great saves (a hilite reel from tonites game alone).
- Ryder's assist (I am loving this free agent pick up).
The Bruins next victim is The Islanders on Thursday.
Go Bruins Go!!!
