Fifth straight game with a goal for Pacioretty, just 31 seconds in— StanleyCup ofChowder (@cupofchowdah) January 18, 2018
Not to fret though, the Bruins SUPERLINE (TM) of Pastrnak, Marchand and St. Patrice tie it up shortly afterwards on a beautiful sequence.

With that felt like a much scrutinized career under Julien, Ryan Spooner gets some retribution on the scoreboard. And yes, it appears Spooner STILL can score on teams not named the Ottawa Senators.

The Bruins started the 3rd with 48 seconds of PP time due to a Froese penalty late in the 2nd period. They can’t convert. They get another PP 2 and a half minutes in on a De LaRose penalty. This time they don’t disappoint with a Marchand goal off a weak pass from Krug, to Bergy to Marchand who buries it. 3-1 good guys and the Garden is going nuts!
marchand pulls back ahead of Pastrnak for the team lead in goals, scoring his 19th of the season, tapping the rebound into the empty net. 3-1 Bruinshttps://t.co/byaAleL6rX— StanleyCup ofChowder (@cupofchowdah) January 18, 2018
Froese takes another penalty (tripping) but the Bruins give a halfhearted, sloppy effort and don’t score despite missing an open net at one point. David Krejci scores an empty netter to make it 4-1, assist to David Backes. The rest of the game winds down with some pretty uninspiring effort from both teams.
