What a delight last night was, you know? Just...delightful. The last time Brian Rolston (pictured above) scored a playoff goal for the Boston Bruins, it was 8 years and 6 days ago against Jose Theodore and in front of Andrew Raycroft. There was no salary cap and there was a two line pass penalty. Hal Gill and Travis Green assisted on the goal that came 3:35 into the third period to bring the Bruins within one of the habs. They did not complete the comeback, partially because Travis Green got a holding the stick penalty later that period. Jose Theodore had 2 assists that night. Weird as heck. Check out the box score for yourself.
Playoff games tonight:
- 7:00pm Panthers @ Devils (1-1) NHL Network
- 7:30pm Predators @ Red Wings (2-1) NBCSports
- 9:00pm Coyotes @ Blackhawks (1-1) CNBC
Non-Bruins Highlight of the night:
Not a lot to choose from because the Rangers goal wasn't that nice. However, Former Minnesota Wild Defenseman Brent Burns can still play pretty damn well, as seen on this alley-oop play. The St. Louis Blues did end up taking the game and the lead in the series, though.
