Game 8 Recap: Bruins 5, Thrashers 4 BRUINS WIN

Our first period effort was like watching the last 40 minutes of thursday's game but then Thornton slaps one in from the point. Stephane Yelle and Nokelainen tip it in and get called for too many men...Oh wait, not quite. (too much pensblog? who knows. They're sellouts anyhow.)

The player of the game is Milan Lucic's contact lenses. Ready?



First hat trick for the second-year player. Keep those contacts in. HD vs. SD, indeed. I think it's a little early to say he's Espo-esque, but people were saying Neely last year... He's a promising young player, for sure. Other important things from last night's game?
Yelle puts a goal in:

  • Johan Hedberg played good backup goal. He was really good on not letting up the rebounds. Still, it was a 5-4 game.
  • There was the switching-sides thing, TD Banknorth Garden ice crew were too busy making sure that the boards were good to keep the faceoff circles in the right spot, apparently. Lame.
  • No HUGE hits for boston last night, that was taken care of the night before. Lucic went and talked to the kids who got stiches as a result of his mega-hit against Mike Van Ryn, they got some free swag. It was their first game.
  • Lucic's first multi-goal game. Rock.
  • The Bruins' first home win, about time!
Record: 3-2-3
Home record: 1-1-1
