Bruins beat Blue Jackets 3-0, advance to conference final

May JohnsonMay 15, 2019

We've really done a really good job of picking our times of pressuring them and jumping those opportunities where we can get the puck out.

In Denver, Colorado avoided elimination as Gabriel Landeskog scored at 2:32 of overtime to lift the Avalanche to a 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks in game six of their Western Conference second-round series. This was the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals.

The Hurricanes and Bruins square off for game two on Sunday at 3 p.m.

After Petr Mrazek struggled in Game 2, speculation abounded that Carolina would switch goalies.

"Sometimes you've got to eat a poop sandwich".

Poop sandwich or not, Game 2 nearly certainly left a bad taste in the Hurricanes' mouths. "That's a tough one".

Williams' penalty turned out to be costly, as the Bruins scored on the ensuing power play with a goal from Matt Grzelcyk that made the score 4-0 Boston.

"Then, unfortunately, Willie's [Justin Williams] penalty is probably not a penalty, and then that leads to the second one, and that's what happened", added Brind'Amour. "We've had some success with me in there, without me in there, and I think that's part of our hallmark and why we've been successful". "I'm old enough. I should be able to know better". "Doesn't work every time but keep playing and get through the first five, 10 minutes". Brind'Amour admitted they had the discussion during the intermission to pull him, but ultimately chose to stick with their starter.

"We talked about it, but he doesn't want to come out", said Brind'Amour.

May's government hopes that Britons elected to the European Parliament will not need to take their seats, still wanting to get a divorce deal passed by parliament before the end of June.

"It's going to take a lot more than we did in Boston", Hurricanes center Sebastian Aho said. "I felt 120 percent today, to be honest".

"I know if I was in that position, it would be do or die, your back's up against the wall".

As rough as a day as it was for Mrazek, the Hurricanes' best players didn't do much to help their goalie.

Tuukka Rask stopped 29 shots for Boston, which trailed 2-1 before capitalizing on back-to-back power plays.

While Carolina should have a distinct advantage at 5v5, the Bruins should dominate the special teams portion of the series. He had it too easy in Game 2.

Unless Carolina can hold serve, the same might be said of the series.

The Bruins appeared to have a goal in the first period when Sean Kuraly netted the puck after an extended close-in attack on a power play, but it was overturned after a replay showed that Joakim Nordstrom had pushed Bobrovsky out of the crease. He became the oldest goalie in National Hockey League history to make his first playoff start. He was great in the first round and he's coming back now, tough couple of games, but we have faith in him. "Experience-that's what we lean on right now". Though Carolina scored twice at the end of the period, this one was over by then.

The Boston Bruins have been excellent on the road in the playoffs. The Bruins are into the conference final for the first time since the 2012-13 season, when they lost in the Stanley Cup Final.
