Game Notes:

  • According to Amalie Benjamin, Loui Eriksson might see some time on the first line. It is a risk to break up the charismatic duo of Eriksson and Carl Soderberg but it's worth a try.
  • Guys, we need to talk about it. We need to talk about the power play. Right now, Boston has the worst PPO in the entire league at 77. At least the opportunity-to-goal ratio isn't the worst, but the opportunities still aren't there.
  • The Bruins need to focus on the fundamentals. Lately the little things have been turning close games into losses.


Sveddy was great in this 3-2 OT win.
