The Awesome Boston:
“[Marchand] with an unbelievable shot,” Thornton said. “He actually called it on the bench…He told me on the bench where he wanted to go if he got one so he was unbelievable tonight. The whole line was great.”
A.B. Ok, so it’s not exactly The Great Bambino calling his shot in the 1932 World Series, but it’s still pretty cool. And to make the goal even more special, it was NHL villain Matt Cooke who Marchand left in his dust.
This entire play sums up this Bruins vs. Penguins Eastern Conference Finals series so far.
1) The Penguins get frustrated and lash out
2) The Bruins respond aggressively but stay in the play
3) The Penguins lose their composure
4) The Bruins capitalize in transition
BEST OF MAXIM
Brad Marchand‘s second goal of the game in Game 2 against the Penguins pretty much summed up all you needed to know about the second game of the Eastern Conference final. The pesky Bruins forward got the B’s on the board just 28 seconds into the game, but it was his second goal of the period that really put the final nail in the coffin, even in the first period. Just 25 seconds...
Brad Marchand scored two goals in the first period for the Bruins, and he was almost responsible for a third in the second period. Problem was, it would’ve been for the Penguins.
Marchand had a bad penalty for the second game in a row, giving Pittsburgh’s dangerous power play another chance to do their thing and lift the Pens back into the game. They didn’t, but it should serve...
Do you think the refs would have called the kneeing penalty on Brad Marchand if Chris Kunitz would not have retaliated with the slash?
Both did receive penalties and rightfully so.
This was probably the goal of the game to me. The Penguins had literally just scored after replacing their goalie. It seemed like all the momentum was on their side, and then Marchand just sticks a pin in their balloon seconds later.Awesome to see Marchand talking trash to the scumbag Matt Cooke afterwards.Via Boston Bruins Facebook Group
(Click your mouse on the picture to get the picture to move)... What's that thing about karma? You can also tell who the actual skilled player is. I think this is better than revenge. It's also a good example of how effective that the Boston Bruins have been in getting the Pittsburgh Penguins off of their game. I also believe, that the Bruins have also done a very good...
AT LONG LAST
Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron scored the game winning goal at the 15:19 mark of the second overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 2-1 double overtime win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Assisting on the game winning goal was Brad Marchand and Jaromir Jagr. This was the longest game of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. With the win, the Bruins take a 3-0 series lead and can close...
There were plenty of individual cases of embarrassment for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night, as they lost to the Bruins 6-1 to dig themselves into an early 2-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals. For starters, you had Sydney Crosby turning the puck over to spot the Bruins a lead 28 seconds into the [...]
Brad Marchand scored twice during a four-goal first period and the Boston Bruins routed the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1 in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday night.
David Krejci, Nathan Horton, Patrice Bergeron and Johnny Boychuk also scored for Boston, which hardly broke a sweat while going up 2-0 in the best-of-seven series. Tuukka Rask kept Sidney Crosby and the rest...
- Brad Marchand was unreal last night. First he opened the game with scoring a goal at the 26 second mark. If I could, I would personally thank Sidney Crosby for that turnover which lead to the Marchand goal.
And as great as that goal was, the second one was even better. Marchand starts chirping Cooke, gets Cooke's defenses down and then takes off on a rush and scores...
Brad Marchand had two very important goals, Tuukka Rask allowed just one goal on 27 shots, and five Bruins had two points as the Bruins systematically dismantled the Penguins in a 6-1 game to take a 2-0 series lead back to Boston.
The Bruins chased Tomas Vokoun on three goals on their first 12 shots and the Bruins added three more against Marc-Andre Fleury in a blowout. Kris Letang...
Did anyone see this coming? Anyone? The Boston Bruins entered the Eastern Conference Finals with not many people picking them to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins. But through two games, the Bruins have been the better team and head home after dominating the Penguins 6-1 on Monday night. The Bruins dominated from the get-go. Brad Marchand scored just 28 seconds in and the Bruins...
The Bruins talked ad nauseum about how they expected the Penguins to be much better in Game 2 than they were in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final.
Boy, were the Bruins wrong.
The Penguins were even worse in Game 2 — a 6-1 Bruins win — but that only tells half of the story. Despite the fact that the Pens were awful in the second game of the best-of-seven series, it shouldn’t...
6 to 1. That was the final score of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals and, unfortunately, for Penguins fans, that 6 did not favour Pittsburgh. The initial response when I sat down to write this recap was as follows:
“Boston scored. That’s all. 6 times. Oh. And Brandon Sutter got one and we saw Fleury. Chara is tall, Ference is a granola bar and Marchand likes to slewfoot...
