Well, it was to good to last. The Bruins finally fell to the Oilers 4-2 after winning four games in a row. It’s not much of a surprise since the Oil are on a trend to defeat the B’s at the Garden in the past couple of seasons.
In the loss, David Pastrnak and David Krejci scored in the first and second periods, respectively. Tuukka Rask, playing in his first game in almost two weeks and looked good for the most part but a bit rusty. The Oilers maintained a 3-2 lead from the beginning of the third period until Boston pulled Tuukka in favor of the extra skater, which resulted in an empty net goal by Leon Draisaitl.
The Bruins next take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in Boston on Wednesday. And it’s a Rivalry Night game on NBCSNOMGWTFBBQ so make sure you get your rivalry night gear out for that!
