Bruins vs. Ducks Recap: CARRRRRL! B's win 3-2 in shootout

Jared Wickerham

Extra Skater: Stats

A win is a win is a win. Tonight's game against the Ducks was definitely not the prettiest game the Bruins have had recently, but the end result was the one we all want: two points. The Bruins had all of eight shots on goal through two periods - ONE in the first period, then seven in the second. Someone must have delivered the caffeine IVs between periods two and three, because they managed 15 shots between the third period and overtime, and it was...obviously enough to tie it up and get this thing to a shootout.

The Good:

-Carrrrrrrl! The line of Carl Soderberg, Chris Kelly and Ryan Spooner looked rough around the edges early (and were solely responsible for Devante Smith-Pelly's goal in the first period) but vastly improved by the end of the game. Let's hope we see more of this going forward.

- Jarome Iginla's shootout goal was filthy.

- The Bruins capitalized on a power play tonight! SORCERY. Zdeno Chara got the equalizer with close to no time left in the third period, and it was good.

The Bad:

- Johnny Boychuk left the game in the second period. No word on what's up.

- One of these things is not like the other, one of these things is....well you get the point

It took the Bruins 14 minutes to even record anything that went remotely towards Jonas Hiller.

The Interesting:

- Tonight was Carl Soderberg's first NHL goal, and Ryan Spooner's first NHL point! Which is strange, I somehow thought he'd gotten a secondary assist or something last year but apparently not.
