Here's the best of Jack Edwards taking you into the weekend, as we don't have him that much left in either case.
Hell yes! Last night was the best night at the Garden I’ve had in a long time. The way the Bruins came out and skate that first period was tremendous. Everyone look as though a fire was lit under their asses and they skated accordingly. Chasing loose pucks into corner, crisp passes, playing the body, and blocking shots. This Bruins team is far better than we all believed at the beginning of the year and this is the type of play where you can see that.
Last night we saw 5 different goal scorers for the Bruins which is always good, love to see as many guys get in on the act as possible. We also saw Marchand notch his 37th, on beautiful feed from Krug cross ice. Now let’s just talk about Torey Krug, he’s my fucking favorite player and has been since he came up against the Rangers 2 seasons ago. Krug with 3P last night nothing a Goal and 2 Assists, he would lead all point scorers in the game with his first goal in 50 games. Pastrnak opened the scoring at 1:25 into the game on a crazy nice feed from John-Michael Liles up ice to open the flood gates.
My favorite piece of this game has to be the no let up style of hockey the Bruins played. I was there last night and in no way after any of the first 3 goals did I see any let up. The Bruins stepped on Detroit’s throats last night and really earned themselves these 2 points in a win or die scenario. All up to the Bruins on Saturday, they still need some help from the Rangers but are in a way better position now in terms of just making the playoffs. My only worry with this Bruins team is the type of effort we will see against this Ottawa team who really has nothing to lose. They took our playoff spot last year and would love to ensure we don’t go to the postseason again this year I’m sure. The Bruins all season have been a team that plays down against not so great teams. If they want to go out with the best chance to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs they will have to beat this Ottawa team on Saturday.
Let's fucking GO Bruins!
