Bruins Bounce Jackets From Playoffs

Boston won the first game of the series in overtime, then fell to the Blue Jackets in OT in Game 2 and lost Game 3 by a goal before ripping off the final three victories.

This postseason, the Bruins are 4-2 in away games and have outscored their opponents 17-7 in the four games they have won.

Sportsbooks varied in how they opened the moneyline for Game 3. Since coming back following a two-week absence, he's allowed 10 goals on 52 shots.

What was also clear in Game 1 was that Tuukka Rask is elite and Petr Mrazek is not!

Both were examples of Hamilton trying to play the physical game that's really not his style, and that's part of the reason it led to the key penalties against the Carolina defenseman in the third period.

'Well, we just made it too easy. Ward started the next 12 games, leading the Canes to series wins over Montreal and New Jersey. That series ended up in a sweep.

Boston set up in the Hurricanes' zone, and Jake DeBrusk sent the puck across the ice to Marchand, who tipped it back into the slot for Bergeron, who slid it through Mrazek's pads to make it 3-1.

Boston is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 road games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. Plus, it's not that big deal of a deal for the Hurricanes.

San Jose host the decisive game seven on Wednesday. "You're not sitting there nursing it by any means, but I wasn't anxious about Tuukka". Mrazek made 40 starts. Toettcher went on and on yelling about how he hated Alexander's accent and also said he was unhappy that the Carolinian was supportive of the "bunch of jerks" nickname. The combination of the playmaking and the finish around the net is a good formula for Johansson, who has goals in consecutive games. So he gave us a chance to win.

Headey says her reaction that final scene was " mixed " at first. "Hasn't left her chambers, hasn't accepted any food". It's clear the wildfire was meant for something during the battle, but we can only speculate as to what.

Three assists by a defensive player should never be overlooked and very much could be here.

"I was hoping this was the way it would go", Backes said. "Obviously, the Bruins and Islanders are different teams and stuff". "I thought the situation through and I thought he was looking for a spark somewhere or another. If the opportunity does present itself, just be ready for it".

"That was the cooker", Brind'Amour said.

"Justin's an intelligent guy, he's been in a lot of playoff games, had lot of success in the playoffs", Backes said.

The Bruins appeared to have a goal in the first period when Sean Kuraly put one in after an extended close-in attack on a power play, but it was overturned after a replay showed that Joakim Nordstrom had pushed Bobrovsky out of the crease.

Mrazek will be motivated - and his teammates will be as well. "We didn't play well in front of him. He was there every night". "I don't think that's right". "I've got the lead in that respect".

With their season essentially hanging in the balance, you have to believe the Carolina Hurricanes are turning to Curtis McElhinney.

"It's tough to say", said the pending free agent. He has spent parts of seven seasons in the National Hockey League but has never played more than 47 games in a year.

If it's Mrazek, the Bruins have proven that his aggressiveness can be used against him. "I don't look any further than that".
