Last night the Bruins took on the St. Louis Blues and, despite a good first period, ended up losing to the Blues 4-2. David Freakin’ Backes got the Bruins on the board first with a goal in the first period that was also the Bruins 20,000th goal.
Then the next period happened.
Dominic Moore scored goal 20,001. Unfortunately the Blues scored three goals and have a 3-2 lead.
SCORE MOORE GOALS BRUINS AND WIN THE GAME!
And uh, what happened to Chara?
(Yes, I phoned it in with this last game thread. I’m tired.)
BACKES BACKES BACKES BACKES!
Bruins are up 1-0 thanks to David Freakin’ Backes. KEEP DOING AWESOME THINGS!
Some fun facts after the first period because I’m all about fun facts tonight:
So, who do we think gets goal 20,001?
Tonight the Bruins host the St. Louis Blues, the team David Backes played for for 10 years. Both teams haven’t played since Saturday and both are coming off wins. Blues beat Nashville 3-1 while the Bruins beat the Jets 4-1.
Lines Lines Lines!
Some quick injury updates per Bruins Twitter:
-Khudobin will stay with Providence and may play in the game tomorrow.
-Pastrnak is progressing but still day to day.
-Vatrano skated today for the firs time since undergoing foot surgery.
A fun fact from the official Bruins game preview:
The next Bruins goal will be the 20,000th in franchise history (includes shootout deciding goals). They will be the second team to reach that milestone (Montreal).
Who do you think scores the 20,000th goal?
