Marchand Pots OT Winner, Bruins Even Up Series

It seems like the Bruins learned from their sluggish game one outing. The Bruins tallied up a total of 48 shots on goal and continued to dominate the face off with a 63.1% win rate.

Jake Debrusk continued his hot streak scoring a goal in the first period off a beautiful wrap around feed from Charlie Coyle. The Capitals tied up the game shortly after, a power play goal from T.J. Oshie. The Captain Patrice Bergeron broke up the 1-1 tie, thanks to a takeaway from David Pastrnak, who also got credit for the assist. Marchand went to the box on a roughing call which led to a power play goal for the Capitals by Garnet Hathaway to even up the game at 2.

Hathaway will find the back of the net again in the third to give the Capitals a 3-2 lead within seven minutes of the third. With just three minutes left into the game and in real danger of falling down 2-0 in the series, Taylor Hall scored which I think is the most hectic goal finding the puck and putting it past Anderson with a big pile up happening in front of the goal. We are blessed to see overtime hockey again.

It only took a whopping 39 seconds for the game to be called in overtime thanks to Brad Marchand, setting a franchise record for quickest playoff overtime goal, the previous record was Bobby Orr’s cup winner in 1970.

With the series all tied up at one, the series will shift to TD Garden on Wednesday with a 6:30 eastern start time.
