After netting two extra-attacker goals on Monday night, the Boston Bruins completed one of the most historic comebacks in NHL playoff history, winning the game in overtime. Patrice Bergeron scored both the game-tying and game-winning goals in what will be one of the most memorable Game 7s the sport has ever seen.
The late game heroics were similar to that of a regular season tilt played earlier this year, when the Bruins scored two extra-attacker goals against the New York Rangers late in the third period of a February contest. The end result was different, however, as the Rangers defeated the Bruins in a shootout on a Ryan Callahan wrist shot.
Each game between Boston and New York was extremely tight this year, with two of the Rangers victories coming in extended play. Whether it be a 2-1 or 6-5 final, we expect this series to be one of the most exciting league-wide, as two teams with similar overall systems devoted to heavy, physical play should make for a highly entertaining on-ice battle. This is a second round match-up you don’t want to miss.
David Krejci, who leads the Bruins and is tied with Evgeni Malkin for the postseason scoring lead with 13 points, has a tough task in hand going against all-world goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Keep an eye on these two, as each have put up Conn Smyth performances thus far through one round of play.
