Bruins Even Series at Home

Carolina Hurricanes v. Boston Bruins
Game 4 – CAR Leads Series 2-1

Game Recap:

For Game 4 the Boston Bruins look to build off of their Game 3 win at home as they look to their fans energy to feed off of as they take on the Carolina Hurricanes with the hope of tying the series at two. In the first period Mike Reilly would go to the box early on to put the Canes on the powerplay, but unfortunately for the Canes they would not be able to capitalize on the man advantage. Then later in the period Curtis Lazar would go to the box to put the Canes back on the powerplay, and even though they would not score on the powerplay the Canes would strike as Brett Pesce would score his first of the playoffs to give the canes the 1-0 lead. However, two minutes later Patrice Bergeron would score on a broken play in front of the net to tie the game at one for the B’s. Then late in the period Jordan Staal would go to the box for hooking, but Taylor Hall would get called for tripping to end the B’s first powerplay of the game prematurely. At the end of twenty minutes of action the game would be tied at one.

In the second period the Canes would surge into the Bruins zone as Jordan Staal would score 33 seconds into the period to retake the lead for the Canes. But shortly after scoring the goal the Canes would have a parade to the penalty box as Andrei Svechnikov would get called for interference followed by Vincent Trocheck for delay of game to give the Bruins the two man advantage. However, while the B’s did get some good looks on the powerplays it would be the Canes on top as they would kill off both penalties. Then later in the period Teuvo Teravainen would go to the box for hooking, and Nino Niederreiter would get called for tripping to give the Bruins a pair of powerplay opportunities. The Canes would keep the B’s off the board on the first opportunity, but on the second one Jake DeBrusk would score through a scrum in the crease to tie the game at two. The canes would challenge the goal for goalie interference, but the refs ruled that the goal was good, and as a result the Canes would go back to the penalty kill as they were unsuccessful with the coach’s challenge. Then will less that 30 seconds left in the period Sebastian Aho would high stick Patrice Bergeron and draw blood to earn a double minor to give the Bruins and extended powerplay into the third period.

In the third period the Bruins would strike with one second left on their two man advantage as Brad Marchand would rip a blast past Antti Raanta to give the B’s the 3-2 lead, and a 2:53 powerplay to continue to push the play. However, Matt Grzelcyk would get called for high sticking to end the Bruins powerplay and give the Canes an abbreviated powerplay. After the Canes powerplay expired it would be the Bruins back on the attack as David Pastrnak would score to grow the Bruins lead to two. Midway through the period Tony DeAngelo would go to the box for cross checking, but the Canes would kill of the penalty. Late in the period Marchand would net his second goal of the game as he would hit the empty netter to give the Bruins the 5-2 victory over the Hurricanes to even the series at two games a piece.
