A Sunday night game before the bye week! What is this, the NFL?
Anyways, on to the highlights!
Ryan Spooner gets the Bruins on the board early in the first. 1-0 Bruins.
Jamie Oleksiak ties things at one shortly after Spooner’s goal. 1-1 tie.
Putting Pittsburgh on the power play isn’t ideal. Phil Kessel makes the Bruins pay. 2-1 Penguins.
Tuukka Rask would like to have this one back, as he’s too slow post-to-post to catch up to Kris Letang’s shot. 3-1 Bruins.
The Bruins came out strong in the second, as Brad Marchand wired one off the faceoff. 3-2 Penguins.
Noel Acciari gets things level shortly after Marchand’s goal. 3-3 tie.
David Pastrnak keeps things rolling with some great patience to wait out Tristan Jarry. 4-3 Bruins.
David Backes gets lucky with one through traffic that ends Jarry’s night. 5-3 Bruins.
This one hurt: the Bruins left Evgeni Malkin all alone on the PP, and he scored with 3.6 left in the second. 5-4 Bruins.
If Rask wanted the Letang shot back, he definitely wanted this one from Riley Sheahan back. Woof. Tied at 5-5.
After David Krejci, David Pastrnak and Charlie McAvoy got stuck on the ice for an extended period, the Pens took advantage with a great passing play ending with Malkin’s second of the night. Penguins win, 6-5.

Happy bye week!
