Bruins Win in Shootout
Bruins in 4-3 in a SO. You could say it was a good game, I am happy that they got the 2 points, but not the way they did. First off, Brian Finely played well in his 2nd game, even though he only played 1 period due to injury. Tim Thomas played well for most of the game except the last 10 minutes of the game, but overall he played well. Stanislav Chistov played a very good game notching his 1st goal of the season to tie the game 1-1. Marc Savard played well getting 2 assists. Chara's slapshot was a rocket off the right post and in. He is definately a canidate for the Norris this season so far, anchoring the B's staff. Mark Recchi's 2nd goal of the game 19:30 into the 3rd period stung, it stinks that we couldn't get the 2 points without giving any to Pittsburgh. The Bruins had a 3-1 lead into the third, and that should easily be a win, but once again for some reason we go into a defensive shell and Pittsburgh comes back, almost winning the game. Thank god Tim Thomas can stop penalty shots. I don't know what to think of the shootout, that our goalie is great a stopping the shots or that we can't score on the shootout. Overall I am happy with the win, but we can't do this all season long.
