J.T. Miller scored the only Whale goal. Ryan Spooner and Justin Florek had two assists each for the Bruins.
The Whale led for much of the first period, after Miller scored on Connecticut’s first shot of the game at 4:26. After Sean Collins lost the puck in the left-wing corner, Brandon Mashinter was able to get it to Miller between the hash marks, and Miller buried a slap shot behind Bruin goaltender Niklas Svedberg (14 saves).
