Torey Krug running over Robert Thomas was a moment to remember from Game 1

Man, it’s a hot one.

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-St. Louis Blues at Boston Bruins Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Torey Krug: Puck-moving defenseman, great passer, power play weapon...destroyer of teenagers?

Late in Game 1, Torey Krug delivered one of the first signature moments for the Bruins in this Final, as he went the length of the ice to lay out Robert Thomas of the St. Louis Blues.

Let’s have another look!

The whole sequence was crazy, and the full-length replay makes it even better:

If you’re a Bruins fan, you can’t help but get pumped up watching 5’ 9” take a beating in front of his own net, emerge without taking a penalty, and then go a hundred feet or so to (legally) lay out an opposing player.


Of course, you knew wailing and grinding of teeth was coming, and it was predictable:

Everything is a charge if you believe in yourself!

Anyways, Krug’s hustle and big finish will be talked about plenty over the next few days, and if the Bruins can finish this thing off, the photo that accompanies this post will be a keepsake for years to come.
