A GREAT way to start of the series! Relive the best bits here.
Brad Marchand scored a POWERPLAY GOAL off a sweet chip-pass from Torey Krug to put Boston up, 1-0.
The B’s would kill a penalty, generally counter Toronto’s rush, and yet with under 4 minutes to play, Zach Hyman won a race with Krejci to a loose puck, kept the puck out of Charlie McAvoy’s reach, and tucked in a backhander. 1-1 game.

This happened, which is hilarious. Might’ve been in the first but whatever.

A few more penalties called against the Bruins, and Boston was somehow able to kill them all.
David Backes tallied a PPG to put the Bruins back in front. 2-1, B’s!

Brad Marchand shoulder-faked Kapanen in the corner and fed Pastrnak for the B’s third goal!! 3-1, Boston, and it would hold until the end of the second.
Boston had some golden opportunities on the power play - nearly back-to-back on too many men and boarding calls against Toronto. Just as 5v5 resumed, David Pastrnak made a beautiful rush; Andersen made a terrific save; and Sean Kuraly cleaned up the trash. 4-1.
Nazem Kadri got frustrated, and took it out on Tommy Wingels.

Twice. Much worse the second time.
Here’s the 2nd dangerous hit on Wingels by Nazem Kadri tonight. Pretty obvious intent. pic.twitter.com/p9XoGS9cIt— StanleyCup ofChowder (@cupofchowdah) April 13, 2018
Kadri received a five-minute charging major and a game misconduct, and should absolutely hear from the league. On the power play, David Krejci capitalized from behind the goal line to give the Bruins a 5-1 lead.
Krejci puts the Bruins up 4 in the 3rd. pic.twitter.com/NjJFMHnvUF— StanleyCup ofChowder (@cupofchowdah) April 13, 2018
Great win! Back in action on Saturday, but watch for more from SCoC before Saturday’s Game 2.
