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 after the Penguins finally got on board to cut the Bruins’ lead to 3-1, Marchand scored his second of the period with under 10 seconds to go in the first. That helped Boston roll to a 6-1 win and a 2-0 series lead. But it’s what happened directly before and after Marchand’s second goal that Bruins fans might enjoy the most. Marchand could be seen exchanging words with Penguins forward Matt Cooke at the Boston blue line. At some point during the conversation, Marchand realized that the play was still going on. From there, he abruptly ended the encounter, spun and took off down the ice where he eventually beat ...
BEST OF MAXIM
“[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...
Matt Cooke isn’t very well liked around the hockey world and even the folks in Pittsburgh are growing tired of his act.
After Cooke was tossed from Game 1 against the Bruins for hitting Adam McQuaid from behind, Bruins fans and media began calling for the NHL to rid of the Penguins’ goon once and for all. Pens fans and media, for the most part, backed Cooke, claiming McQuaid...
Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins got off to a bumpy start early in the second period. Penguins forward Matt Cooke delivered this crushing hit to Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, hitting him right in the numbers. Cooke was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit.
Later in the period, Brad Marchand hit...
DELIVERING THE HATERADE
Matt Cooke is notoriously know as one of the most disliked players in the NHL. It’s no secret that Bruins fans have a great disdain for him after what he did to Marc Savard back in 2010, so I’m sure Cooke wasn’t surprised to get this response when he entered the penalty box in Boston last night during Game 3. Cooke seems to be enjoying the role of “bad guy” in this situation...
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 [...]
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...
Here is the tweet by Jordan Kuruc that went viral on twitter last night after Matt Cooke was kicked out of the game. It's evidence that you should have a breathalyzers or a stupidity meter attached to your twitter account before you send a tweet out there into cyber space.
The bad part is that this will be out there forever and when someone searches his name on the Internet...
According to Haggs, Bruins Best Friend Matt Cooke won't be getting a phone call from Brendan Shanahan for his hit on Adam McQuaid. Not surprised. It was a garbage hit but didn't seem to fall into the realm of where the league would suspend someone -- even if it is Matt Cooke.
Some of the Bruins didn't think Cooke's hit was deserving a suspension either...
- 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...
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...
