They weren’t pretty, but they were enough.
Thanks to a couple of ugly goals, the Bruins were able to overcome the “pesky” Senators and emerge victorious once again, extending their winning streak to five games. Tuukka Rask was stellar as always, making 30 saves and coming up big time and time again. However, it was once again the penalty kill that came up big when the Bruins needed it to.
Patrice Bergeron is a big part of that unit, and his overtime goal was just enough to get the B’s two points on Thursday. So, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding the Bruins center our “Boston Bouncers” player of the game after this one. Who’s yours?
