Game 74: Bruins lose to Rangers in a shootout 2-1, are 34-34-6

Though better then Thursday's meltdown against Montreal, another third period comeback led to a Bruins loss.

Dave Lewis went with some new guys in the lineup. Joey MacDonald started, as did new guy from Providence Ben Walter.

The first period was pretty boring, the Bruins had some good offense though. In the second period the only real intersting thing was when Shean Donovan stole the puck and then found Savard, who gave the Bruins their only goal. In the third period the Bruins were playing great, Macdonald was doing a hell of a job, but with 1:40 left in the game, Pock scored and the game went into OT.

OT was a lot of fun, especially when the Bruins went on a power play. Both teams had good quality scoring chances but couldn't convert. The game went into a shootout.

NYR: Michael Nylander's shot got by Macdonald
B: Patrice Bergeron went five hole and scored

NYR: Macdonald managed to stop Matt Cullen
B: Marco Sturm's shot was saved
NYR Jaromir Jagr's shot went under (more like through) Macdonald
B: Phil Kessel tried his usual deke left go right but he couldn't fake out Lundqvist and the Rangers won.

Joey Macdonald did great in the game, but he sucked in the shootout. All three NYR shots would have been easily saved by Thomas.
