Bruins Win 4-1! Lead Series 1-0!!
Last night The Bruins won the opening game of the 2nd round by soundly beating The Hurricanes 4-1. Ten days off and no rust; they were by far the better team.
- Ward scores on a pass from RYDER 1:34 into the game.
- Thomas was finally needed and he answered the bell.
- Savard scores twice.
- Ference made his return to the lineup after injury.
- Staal did nothing.
- RYDER takes advantage of a giveaway and blows a Bonavista Bullet by Ward!
- Lucic moved up to the top line, Wheels reunited with Krejci and RYDER and Axelsson grinds it out with Thornton and Yelle.
- Chara 3rd on The Bruins' defense in ice time. Ward and Wideman played more.
3 Stars as picked by me:
#3. Savard - 2 goals and lots of energy!
#2. Thomas - Played great and made 4 fantastic "Timmy" saves (2 with right pad, one with the left and a great glove save).
#1. Michael "Conn Smythe" Ryder - goal and an assist and a threat all night! Now leads the NHL in playoff scoring!!!
Game #2 will be played Sunday night.
Go Bruins Go!!!
