The Bruins Double THe Habs In Game One!
Last night, in the first game of their opening round series, The Bruins defeated The Canadiens 4-2.
The Bruins got out to a quick 2-0 lead on goals by Kessel and Krejci but The Habs fought back to tie it at 2. In the third period (during a tv time out) Chara said, "Enough of this crap guys! Savard, you do you magic and get me the puck and I will do the rest! Lets Go!!" Sure enough Savard got him the puck and he blasted the winner easily by the overratted Price. Kessel added an empty netter: game over. The Bruins lead the series 1 game to none!
The Bruins played great in the first period and the last 10 minutes of the 3rd. The Habs had control in the 2nd and the 1st 10 minutes of the 3rd. Not the Bruins best game but this time of year all that matters is the "W"! They never played great but played good enough to win. I feel their play will improve greatly from this game and the sloppiness seen last night will be no more
- Georges Laraque played on Montreals 1st line all night!? Thanks Bob.
- Lucic with big hits all night and keeping his temper in check.
- Kessel with 2 goals.
- Savard with a great fake, no look pass to Chara for the winner.
- Krejci, Lucic and Ryder line was the best on either team last night.
- Chara's bomb for the winner. No screen either. Price just looked like he went small when the big guy teed it up.
3 Stars as picked by me:
3 - Lucic - Big hits and set the tone.
2 - Kessel - 2 goals. Both on empty nets but 2 goals are 2 goals:)
1 -Chara - game winner and in no way intimidated by Laraque.
The next game is on Saturday.
Go Bruins Go!!!
