What a great way to honor Johny Bucyk. The players who have been playing well as of late played another outstanding game. We had two PP goals, we killed seven penalties, Thomas got a shutout, and Ferrence had a great game with the Bruins.
Brandon Bochenski started the scoring when he scored on a 5 on 3 power play. Marco Sturm added another for the Bruins on the power play and the Bruins were up two. Before the two goals though, Jeremy Reich beat up Greene, the leading penalty taker for the Oilers, it was a quick fight but Reich clearly won.
Dave Lewis passive style hockey finally worked, and the Bruins played fantastic defense the entire rest of the game. Marco Sturm scored another goal on an empty net and the Bruins won 3-0.
Ference did a great job playing alongside Alberts, his first game with the Bruins was a huge success. Lets hope Kobasew is just a good when he is back from injury. Meanwhile, like I said, the players who have been playing well, the ones on a hot streak, played fantastic on Tuesday night. Bochenski scored, Sturm scored twice, Bergeron had two assists, and Petr Tenkrat, who had what I would call the most clutch play of the season so far (his shootout goal in Game 54) also played a fantastic game.
This was just a fun overall game to watch, We should have more Johny Bucyk games.
