Today the Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins squared off in Game 2 of their series. It actually started on time tonight, at 8p. Some news in-between games as Rod Brind’Amour made some comments against the referees and was sub-sequentially fined by the NHL.
A quick recap of the first game, as the Bruins took Game 1 by a score of 4-3 in double overtime, the winning goal scored by Patrice Bergeron.
Here is how the teams would line up for Game 2:
In the first period, it would take a while, but the Bruins would tally the first goal of the game with a little less than 5 minutes left in the period. The goal would come from David Krejci, his second goal of the playoffs. The assists on the play came from Brad Marchand and Torrey Krug. The period would end with the Bruins up 1-0 heading into the intermission.
In the second period, it would take a while too to dent the twine. The Hurricanes would tie up the game with a little less than 5 minutes left in the period. The goal would come from Teuvo Teravainen, his second goal of the playoffs. The assists coming from Andrei Svechnikov and Sebastian Aho. The Hurricanes would get another quick strike a minute later, as Andrei Svechnikov would tally his fourth goal of the playoffs. The assists on the play came from Martin Necas and Trevor van Riemsdyk.
However, with about 5 seconds before the end of the period, the Bruins would tie the game up. The goal coming from Brad Marchand. Assists on the play coming from Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, his second point of the game.
In the third period, about halfway through, the Hurricanes would find the breakthrough to re-gain the lead. The goal coming from Dougie Hamilton, against his former team, and it was his first point of these playoffs. The lone assist on the play came from Martin Necas, his second point of the game.
The Hurricanes would hold on to the lead to secure victory and tie up the series at one game a piece. The next game that these two teams will play will be Saturday at 12p.
