The Boston Bruins take two in a row, winning both home games from the Philadelphia Flyers.
The first win came in a shootout victory, with the final score being 5-4. The Bruins showed up in the third period tallying goals from Studnicka, Coyle, Ritchie and Carlo. Jack Studnicka earned his first NHL goal, and the Bruins first5-on-5 goal of the season. Jake DeBrusk ultimately won it in the shootout, with Rask standing on his head. Unfortunately, Boston would lose Ondrej Kase to an injury.
- The Bruins have to stop taking bad penalties
- Young guys are showing up
- Goaltending is holding strong
The second game against the Flyers ended in a stunning 6-1 victory, which also earned the Bruins their first regulation win of the season. Patrice Bergeron opened up the scoring, with goals from Smith, Coyle, and Marchand. Bergeron and Marchand both scored twice, while the lone Flyers goal came from Boston native Kevin Hayes. Halak played really well in net, although he didn’t face very many shots. Scoring was a problem for the Bruins against the Devils and Islanders, but not vs. the Flyers.
- Solid goaltending from Halak
- First line looking solid
- Young guns continuing to show up
As Boston improves their record to 3-1-1, they will take on the Penguins tonight at 7PM, looking to keep their winning ways going.
