A bright spot for the team was Charlie Coyle. Coyle scored the first goal of the night off a feed from Taylor Hall, who would notch his 600th career point with the assist. Coyle would later go on to net the shootout goal to secure two points for the gold and black.
The power play unit looked sluggish to start the season and the game, starting 0-for-2 on the night. Bt, the Bruins then finally found some power play success. Within six seconds of the power play, Brad Marchand worked down the sideboards and fed a pass to Charlie McAvoy crashing the backdoor for the game-tying power play strike.
Linus Ullmark went on and played a really strong game for the Bruins. Stopping 33 out of 35 shots while also standing tall in the shootout so the Bruins can get the win. “Today was a good day. I thought we played a really solid 65-minute game of hockey…it’s a good Saturday in Boston.” Ullmark would have to say after his win in Boston.
The Gold and Black gets a little break until their next game, Thursday. That’s three full days off, which should be plenty of enough time to get prepared for the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.
