With two goals in the first two minutes, the B’s ended up sailing to a 4-2 victory.

Hopefully you were sitting down, watching and ready for the Bruins to score fast in this one.

First Period

A low-angle shot that Pasta rifles past Crawford just 52 seconds in to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead.

Ummm Crawford, are you OK? Lauzon slips one through the Blackhawks net minder only 36 seconds later, 2-0 B’s.

The Swedish chef, Anders Bjork delivered on a silky feed from Bergeron to put the Black and Gold up 3. Something tells me this kid is ready for the show.

Chicago goals make us saad, but Brandon Saad’s goal-line tip was pretty nice here.

END OF 1: Bruins 3-1 Blackhawks

Second Period

Much more of an evenly skilled frame, this time around. John Hayden with the only tally here. This one was initially waved off, but the video replay crew hit the siren to stop play and change the call.

Third Period

Certainly a more chippy 20 minutes to close this one out. Noel Acciari ended up in a hugging contest with Connor Murphy, which led to this Patrice Bergeron power play tally.

In the end, a big win, some stellar performances by both vets and rookies, and a lot to chew on going into the end of the preseason.
