Game Notes:

  • This game truly shows the meddle of the Boston Bruins this season. Will the B’s let a postseason comeback loss rattle them or can they return to form at home?
  • With the 4-3 OT defeat, it was the first time that Bruce Cassidy’s Bruins had lost giving up a two goal lead.
  • Charlie McAvoy played quite another chunk of minutes in Game 2, 27:47, but that could change depending on who returns to the lineup.
  • Combined with regular season totals, the shorthanded goal scored by Tim Schaller was the Bruins 11th shorthanded goal this season so far, second overall behind 12 from the Nashville Predators
  • Mark Borowiecki, who injured Colin Miller in Game 1, was injured after taking an awkward collision into the boards during Game 2. Cosmic karma? Maybe. His status is unknown at the moment for tonight.
  • According to Bruce Cassidy, there’s a good chance Noel Acciari slots back into the lineup for Game 3, having missed the last three games with what was dubbed an upper body injury.
  • Enjoy the postseason atmosphere, Bruins fans, the Stanley Cup playoffs finally return to Boston!

Schaller’s shorthanded goal was pretty awesome.
