Rask, Bruins close out Jackets in Game 6

Wednesday, 15 May, 2019

Down 2-0 in the Eastern Conference final after being shelled for two games by the Boston Bruins, they need to change something.

While Boston's power play went 2-for-5 and the two powerplay goals tied and won the game early in the third period, the Bruins to a man said they were disgusting on the man-advantage and can be much better.

It's a decision that New York Islanders head coach Barry Trotz didn't make - but should have - after being down 2-0 to the Hurricanes in Round Two.

No matter who, the Hurricanes can't expect to win if their goalie has a save percentage anywhere close to the.808 Mrazek had in the first two games. "He was definitely our most consistent player throughout the series". "If anything, he just wants to get back out there".

"One of our best efforts in the playoffs", said Bruins forward Danton Heinen.

The Bruins were certainly preparing to see him in Game 3. McElhinney went 3-0-0 with a 1.56 GAA and.947 SV% after entering the series midway through Game 2 and leads all playoff netminders with a.956 5v5 SV%.

After baiting Justin Williams into taking a holding penalty - "I'm old enough, I gotta know better", Williams said - Marchand mocked the Canes' captain by miming a "C" on his chest and pointing to the penalty box. "I think when we're on our game and skating, we're as good of a skating game as any in the league".

Playing in just his second career playoff game in the Eastern Conference Final opener against the Carolina Hurricanes, the former University of MI defenseman opened the scoring 2 minutes, 55 seconds in. "He was there every night".

The Bruins scored early and often, as Carolina goaltender Petr Mrazek gave up six goals on 25 shots (and 10 straight in the series) before the Hurricanes managed two goals of their own in the third period, one of those scored by Williams. In 15 playoff games, San Jose has scored five goals on at least five occasions. "We may leave the lineup alone and give him a little extra time". I'm not going to tell you he's going to be in (Tuesday) right now. Cassidy said Acciari, who has missed four games with an upper-body injury, is cleared to play but will be scratched.

NOTES: Columbus F Markus Hannikainen played in his first career playoff game. "I don't know where I'm going to end up, but I enjoy playing in this league, so I just try not to screw it up".

"I'm disappointed in myself".

The Bruins appeared to have a goal in the first period when Sean Kuraly put one in 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.
