Series had hype. Series is delivering. First, here are the highlights because The Design Team taught me to be an internet ninja and I can just embed cool things left and right.
Shots: 35 Boston, 33 Montreal
Power Plays: 0 for 2 Boston, 0 for 1 Montreal
Goals: 1 Boston, 0 Montreal; Matt Fraser was called up from the minors yesterday and scored his first NHL goal 1:19 into overtime last night. He’s the 6th player in the last 75 years to score his first NHL goal as a playoff overtime goal.
Absolute classic. Every great series has one of these games: a zero-zero barn burner. Barely any penalties. Barely any goals. About 10 shots a period for both squads. Goaltenders tend some great goal. Classic.
Best of 3 now heading back to Boston. Good for Boston. Good for hockey. Good for America. Good for humanity. Good for my roommate Ryan who bleeds Bruins hockey and got a promotion yesterday. Good, good, good.
