Good job, good effort, Tuukka.
The Bruins have a pretty good start to their road trip, but their effort just wasn’t enough, and they fell to the Sharks last night 3-2 at the SAP Center. Too bad, cause a win here would have leap-frogged them (leapt-frog?) back into first place, over the Panthers who had the amazing luck to play the Habs so late in the season.
You know what that sound means, kids. That’s right, it’s a manatee game and the Bruins apparently had their coffee and beat the Islanders in a very important game to sit alone in first place (for now) by the score of 3-1.
Well Gustavsson got the start for this one
Which makes sense. Playing Rask 120+ minutes in two straight nights is just friggin’ absurd. The game started out with a ton of intensity, all of which boiled up to matching minors from the 11’s, Jimmy “Mayes” Hayes & Brian Boyle for roughing. The pace of the 1st period is up there, both teams not giving up much, however both teams get some good chances. The game has some snarl to it, which is always entertaining. At 16:26 Chara goes to the box for high sticking. Marchand gets the best chance of the period however and is robbed by Bishop.
