As predicted, the Bruins came out and stomped all over the Hurricanes. Hard to believe we lost to this team last year. A complete 180 from the game on Thursday. 1-10 killing on the PK, 4-8 on the PP, 7 different goal scorers, 92 penalty minutes.
A lot of people have said this reminds them of the Dallas game last year, and I agree, fights, goals, line brawls, cheap shots, you name it. The passing was much crisper, Thomas looked sharper, and the forecheck was present, as seen on the Sturm and Thornton goals. If the Bruins can play a game like this every night, they will be impossible to beat. Also, Chuck Kobasew and David Krejci did not record a point, showing the depth of this team.
