That's more like it! The bruins decided to wake up and play some hockey all of a sudden. Their backs are still against the wall but they're looking feisty and ready to battle.
Aaron Ward's orbital bone might be broken. That walker joke should get broken too.
Jussi Jokinen is now officially a dirty word in Boston.
Now lets see how those goals got scored.
Check out this hit by Lucic on Seidenberg. Seriously: Lucic Hit on Seidenberg. The whole garden watched him move in like a predator of some type...da-dum...da-dum...da-dum-da-dum-da-dum...BOOM! AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!
Bruins get on the powerplay late in the period (and early, etc...carolina is really taking penalties like crazy here). Faceoff, puck gets back to Chara. he wrists one in from the point, Recchi bats it down, it goes 5-hole on Cam Ward.
Then there's this line we have. It's pretty good, we like to call it the top line. Marc Savard, Phil Kessel...you may have heard of these guys. One is a brilliant passer, the other a sniper. They make a dynamic duo not unlike Spock and Kirk (p.s. see the new star trek). Anyhow, Savard has it on one side of the offensive zone. Kessel is on the other side. Their eyes meet across the ice and it's like a match made in heaven. The angels sing, and it distracts carolina (the traffic in front helps too) long enough for Kessel's shot to bounce right in.
Staal goes to hit Chara. I love it when they do that. Here's what happens right after Staal bounces off like one of the kids in that south park episode:
You'll have to pardon the embed, but this is important. Link here.
So at this point Jussi's already slashed the crap out of Chara's ankle and he's come back. Bergeron and Ryder go into the zone and bergeron-ryder-cam ward's pad. HUGE rebound, bigger-than-chara-big, and while the camera is adjusting for it Lucic comes in and slaps it home.
Walker punches Ward in the face and gets one of the only one-sided fighting majors I've ever seen. Ward's orbital bone may be broken.
Let me tell you a little bit about my hometown...
Bruins still trail the series,
We'll see 'em again on Tuesday. This ain't over yet.
