Box Score


B’s start strong...: The Bruins might have been the only team that got the memo about today’s 12:30 start, scoring a pair of goals just 2:02 into the game. You couldn’t have asked for a better start from a B’s team looking to generate some momentum going into the bye week — as Patrice Bergeron lit the lamp just 11 seconds into the contest off a set play from the opening puck drop. It only took 1:51 for Boston to strike again, with Boston’s new-look second line landing a punch against Matt Murray off of an Anders Bjork snipe. Add in David Pastrnak’s 37th goal of the season later in the first (off a fortuitous deflection from Jack Johnson in front), and the Bruins were well on their way toward a convincing win over a red-hot Penguins crew. 

Well, it was fun while it lasted.
