Let's see here, some big news from Saturday's game. First of all, Marco Sturm is out until December with an ACL and MCL tear. He went in for a hit, missed, and slammed into the boards. Terrible news. Here he is getting helped off by Krejci and Bergeron.
In happier news,
Savard is back, baby.15 minutes of ice-time eased the Center back into the swing of things. 2pims, 2sogs, 1gwg, I'll take it.
Boucher and the Flyers defense did a great job stopping scoring chances from turning into goals.Except here
And here.Oh hey Steve, what's going on? You've got your arms in the air like you... scored... a... playoff... goal?
It's true! The pictures don't lie! He scored! In fact he started the scoring by going to the hash marks just when Recchi was coming around the back of the net. Recchi tries to wrap it around and in, but Boucher stops the first attempt. It Bounces Back out and "Boom-Boom" Begin Blasts the Biscuit Behind "Boohoo" Boucher.
The Bergeron Buried a Black rubber Burger, Buying the Bruins a Big Bi-goal lead that helped them eventually Best Briere and Buddies. phew, I think that's enough of that.
Look at this picture:
How can you argue with a face like that?
Oh and if you didn't see it, Krejci's goal was dirty like this morning's shower. He gets in alone, and waits out Boucher. Boucher goes down, Krejci goes around, bingo
Chris Pronger tried to beat up his fellow elder statesmen Satan and Recchi like it was 1880s congress but Mark Recchi takes shit from nobody, even Alternate Captain Elbows.
All in all a tense game with a great outcome. Exciting stuff. Here's some highlights:
