It Was A Great Night To Win A Hockey Game: Bruins Beat Blues 5-2

St. Louis Blues v Boston BruinsThe Boston Bruins snapped their two-game losing streak thanks to a 5-2 win against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night at TD Garden.

Nice tilt between Zdeno Chara and Patrick Maroon to get things going in the 1st. Looked like Z wasn’t putting in any effort and still took care of Maroon.

Charlie McAvoy gave him props for sticking up for him after the fight. Z, like the good Dad he is, gave him some love right back.

(2nd, 3;31): David Krejci feeds Torey Krug, Bruins take the early 1-0 lead.

(2nd, 4:23): A minute later Ryan O’Reilly tied the game 1-1.

(2nd, 13:36): Carl Gunnarsson with the go-ahead goal for St. Louis. 2-1 Blues.

(2nd, 16:00): David Backes‘ PPG ties things up once again 2-2.

(3rd, 5:27): Chris Wagner with a beautiful finish on the breakaway. 3-2 Bruins.

(3rd, 13:12): Charlie McAvoy finds Brad Marchand. 4-2 Bruins.

(3rd, 19:08): Sean Kuraly ENG seals the deal. 5-2 Bruins.

News, notes and quotes:

  • Another point for Peter Cehlarik tonight, he had the secondary assist on Torey Krug’s opening score. He’s been great in this 2 game stint. Three point night for David Krejci, I think he’s enjoying playing with Peter.
  • Rough night for Johnny Moore. Him and Kevan Miller struggled tonight. No chance that pairing stays together Saturday.
  • He’s Back(es) – After getting healthy scratched last night against the Flyers, David scored the game-tying goal in the 2nd on the PP. Just when we were all thinking… “why is Backes on the PP?” Nice to see him get one against his former club.
  • Walpole’s finest Chris Wagner with the game-winning goal. Fourth liner with first line hands. What a finish.
  • Sean Kuraly’s ENG was his 5th goal in the last 13 games. #FishBowlKuraly
  • Tuukka Rask has now tied Tiny Thompson for the most wins in Boston Bruins franchise history (252). He’ll have a chance for history on Saturday night against the New York Rangers. He’s solidified himself as the No. 1 goaltender once again. 2U’s 2K’s, 2 big points.

DxKQ2k6WoAAj8-yB’s are back on Saturday night as they host the New York Rangers. Rask with a chance at franchise history before the All-Star Break. Time to finish the week strong.
