The Rangers get things started with an early goal from noted offensive dynamo Michael Haley. 1-0 Rangers

Charlie McAvoy bails out his goalie to keep things at 1-0 Rangers.

David Pastrnak takes it STRONG TO THE HOOP, and Patrice Bergeron cleans up the rebound to make it a 1-1 tie.

The Rangers give Brad Marchand just a liiiiiiiiiiiiiittle too much space out front, and he makes them pay. 2-1 Bruins

It’s a Charlie Connection, as Charlie McAvoy finds Charlie Coyle to make it 3-1 Bruins.

Henrik Lundqvist, whose prime years were wasted by the Rangers, is very mad at David Pastrnak.

Brad Marchand is given too much time in front again, and he makes the Rangers pay. 4-1 Bruins

Zdeno Chara gets in on the fun with a slapshot from the blueline early in the third. 5-1 Bruins

The Rangers scored on the power play to make it 5-2 in the third, but we don’t need to see that. Instead, we can watch Patrice Bergeron score again to make it 6-2 Bruins in the third.

The Rangers scored twice in the final two minutes to make things close at 6-4, but the Bruins put their best line out there to finish it, and finish it they did.

David Pastrnak had the puck with two wings each looking for a hat trick, and he chose Bergeron. The empty-netter made it 7-4 Bruins, and that’s how we finished.

To recap:

  • 3 goals from Patrice Bergeron
  • 2 goals, 3 assists, 5 points for Brad Marchand
  • 5 assists from David Pastrnak
