Things started bad...

...and ended bad. Fart_noise_reverb.mp3
- Your TOI leader tonight was, as per usual, Charlie McAvoy. 23 minutes and change logged, with
- Jeremy Swayman was...alright. a .916 SV%, and one of the goals came off of a one-in-a-million bounce off Derek Forbort’s leg, but it’s hard to say he was the smoking gun that killed this game for the B’s when he had almost no help.
- No, that smoking gun today would be the Boston Bruins offense, who spent most of the game getting blanked by Frederik Andersen and the Hurricanes defense. Say what you will of the morality involved on that obnoxious team, they defend like crazy and can skate. The B’s looked completely overwhelmed on the forecheck; trying anything that worked and...well...it didn’t. All Carolina had to do was just keep disrupting their chances over and over.
- Not an ideal game for the 2nd line. They did get more unblocked shot attempts than most of the other lines, especially including Taylor Hall’s incredible gifted chance that just...didn’t...go...in.
- Jake DeBrusk wants a goal so bad it’s going to get him killed. It’s just frustrating that he wasn’t able to cash in. Join the club... the rest of the team. Oy.
- Give the Blackhawks the NHL equivalent of the death penalty.
Next game is Saturday as the Florida Panthers, sans Joel Quenneville, comes to Boston. That game starts at 7pm EST, we’ll see you there.
