Boston Bruins Beat The Vancouver Canucks In A Playoff Esque Game

The Boston Bruins Take Down The Canucks

Boston Bruins came out hot once again in this must win game. A game that was very winnable against the struggling Canucks. The worst is that the Ottawa Senators have won their past 6 games making it hard for the B’s to catch up.

First Period

David Backes scored the first goal of the game just 6 minutes into the game. It was a very ugly goal as Backes drove to the net, and Patrice Bergeron through the puck out front in hops of a tip in. Bergy got something along those lines, the puck bounced off Backes’ skate and found it way into the net.

The period went stagnant for a while until the Canucks scored two quick goals, both from Markus Ganlund. The two were almost identical, both goals came off the rush, while the Bruins were caught sleeping. The first was a great pass from one Sedin to the other and then to Granlund for the goal. Almost the same play happened two minutes later at 1705 of the first and Granlund scored to pull the Canucks ahead. That was it for scoring in the first.

Second Period

Zdeno Chara scored 13:58 into the second after the B’s had some good chance but were unable to get the puck past Ryan Miller.  Big Z’s goal was all due to the hard work on the half boards put in by Dominic Moore. Moore was fighting for the puck with two other Canucks. Then he was able to get the puck back to Chara, who one-timed it, and with a Jimmy Hayes Screen Miller had no chance. This tied the game at 2, but not for long.

Alexander Edler regained the lead for Vancouver less than a minute later, with a goal that never should have been a goal. The Bruins played solid D, forcing the streaking Edler to the outside, he took one shot that Rask saved . Then picked up his own rebound and put the puck on net. The puck then just went right through Rask. This should have been a routine save for Tuukk’s. At this point I was thinking the Bruins can not lose to Vancouver.

Third Period

Brad Marchand was not about to lose to the Canucks so he decided to make that a point and score just 58 seconds into the third. This was a powerplay goal as the Canucks took a penalty at the end of the Second. The goal came off a failed attempt from David Pastrnak who then passed it out front and it found Marchy. The game was now tied at 3. Marchand was not done as he scored again jut a few moment later. This was a gorgeous goal. March picked up a rebound on the half-boards, then cut to the net. Miller went down early and Marchy was able to out wait Miller to put the puck in the back of the net. This is what can make Marchand be in the elite scorer class, with patients like this.

David Krejci then decided to get the insurance goal. It was nice to see Krejci score because he has been struggling this season. Hopefully his goal last night will get him hot. Krejci was set up nicely by David Pastrnak who grabbed a loose puck behind the net and made a seam pass to Krejci who scored. Then to add insult to injury March decided to score an empty netter to complete the Hat trick.

“Lots of great memories in this building so it is fun just to come in here and reminisce and when you have a night like that it just adds to those memories,” Marchand said. “That’s kind of when I get into it more and not a good idea for them.”

The Bruins showed that they can come back in a game and that they have no problem  scoring against okay teams. We will have to see how they pair against the red-hot Calgary Flames who have won 10 straight games. That game is Tomorrow in Calgary.

Boston Bruins Take Down Montreal In Preseason Game 1

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:

Boston Bruins VS Montreal Canadiens

Boston looks to take on rival Montreal in their first preseason game of 2018. This will be the first time we are seeing some players in a Bruins uniform. Look for the B’s to have some interesting lines.

The veterans will not be playing tonight like Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Krejci, Zdeno Chara, and David Pastrnak. Tonight’s game is all about the kids and what they can bring to the table. The game is not listed on being shown on NESN, but it may be broadcasted on 98.5 the sports hub.

Everything else is up in the air. The B’s have a ton of guys eyeing a spot on the roster and they do not want to let it slip away. The veterans are the only one who is a shoe-in and we may even see some of their jobs taken.

The puck drops tonight at 7 pm in Quebec City.

Boston Bruins Trying Pastrnak-Krejci-DeBrusk As A Line

Published

Boston Bruins

On Saturday morning at Boston Bruins training camp at the Warrior Ice Arena, the team skated an interesting line.

The newly re-signed David Pastrnak, the overpaid veteran David Krejci, and the unknown rookie in Jake DeBrusk all skated together in practice on Saturday.

This is an expected move with the main goal over the next several weeks to build chemistry within the trio.

Of course, this isn’t the only new lineup that Bruce Cassidy is trying out. On the top line, the B’s are skating Brad MarchandPatrice Bergeron-Anders Bjork. Following this logic, the third line center as of right now is veteran David Backes who failed to work out successfully as a wing last season. Backes, of course, could fly out on the wing with JFK centering which is something Boston has worked on in practice.

DeBrusk, like Bjork, will be in a battle for this top 6 role with other players like a Backes or a Frank Vatrano vying for those same spots. Boston’s forward group projects to be younger this year than any other season in recent memory. Aside from DeBrusk and Bjork there are other rookies who will likely find themselves on the Boston Bruins roster to start the season.

Jakob Forsbecka Karlson and Danton Heinen are two other names that come to mind when talking about this young forward group. Their roles with the 2017-18 Bruins is unclear at the moment. But as camp develops their role and potential for this season should start to clarify. But as it currently sits, here is what my forward group lines would look like as of right now based on what Cassidy is rolling in camp.

Marchand-Bergeron-Bjork

Pastrnak-Krejci-DeBrusk

Vatrano-JFK-Backes

Nash-Spooner-Acciari

Spooner on the fourth is a tough move, but it provides for a solid fourth line that can match up with other teams 3rd liners. This is an early look at the potential lines which will likely change as camp develops and exhibition games get underway.

On the outside looking in for now are players like Austin Czarnik, Tim Schaller, and Heinen.
