Bruins vs. Wild 4/4/19 RECAP: Zach Senyshyn scores in his first NHL goal in a 3-0 shutout!

A pretty low-key Game 81 has Boston walk away with two points!

NHL: Boston Bruins at Minnesota Wild David Berding-USA TODAY Sports

First Period:

Well, it was kinda slow, but both sides were probing their goaltenders well. Ultimately? Neither side got a goal, and the second began.

Second Period:

The second began with the following: a Kevan Miller injury. It was a really really bad thing and frankly that just tops the cherry of Kevan’s absolutely terrifyingly unlucky year.

Thankfully, the Bruins ended up turning things way, way, way up by pressing their advantage, and an absolutely crazy bounce right through Alex Stalock’s legs got the puck to Joakim Nordstrom, who potted it home for his 7th of the year!

He also got hooked on this play at the blueline , so the hockey gods evened out his rough luck by getting him this!

The B’s did not score again, and onto the final 20 we go.

Third Period:

The Bruins managed to double up their score by letting Jake DeBrusk send David Pastrnak a pass through a keyhole in order to get Pasta two goals under 40. 2-0 Bruins!

And towards the end of the game, with the Minnesota net vacated...Zach Senyshyn found his way onto an NHL scoresheet for the first time for a 3-0 Bruins Win!

The penultimate game finished without incident, and the Bruins return home on Saturday to close out the regular season at 1pm. We’ll see you there.

Game Notes:

  • Man, the Boston Bruins just dominated this game. This was just an otherwise complete and total demolition of the Wild from bell to bell, even with an otherwise slow first period.
  • Zach Senyshyn SCORED!!! It was an empty netter, sure, but he’s now a point-per-game! He also looked like he had some wheels to him, and played pretty well.
  • Jaro had a shutout and the Wild made it as easy as they could on him for a good portion of the game, though he kept things as even
  • Connor Clifton got an interference call and really, that was kind of amazing that he only got the one. He was playing with fire throughout the night.
  • While a certain subsection of fans might’ve gone pale in the face at the idea of Torey Krug getting top-pairing minutes, the Bruins premiere offense-first defender actually did pretty alright! He even broke up a 2-on-1! He was not however, the team’s leading defender in TOI, that honor at 5v5 was Brandon Carlo’s, who also did well!
  • Poor Killer, man. His season’s been ravaged by injury, even if this one seems slightly more minor than others.
  • Only one game left. Then it’s Toronto from here to whenever.
