With a 4-1 win over the Panthers on Sunday, the Bruins enter the most brutal portion of their schedule on a three-game winning streak.
The B’s penalty kill unit was dominant during the stretch, as it has been all season, and has held opponents scoreless on 20 consecutive power plays. In fact, Boston has allowed just three power-play goals all season, good for a 94.8 percent penalty-kill efficiency that leads the NHL by a wide margin.
NESN’s Naoko Funayama caught up with head coach Claude Julien during Ace Ticket Presents Bruins Overtime Live after Sunday’s win. Check out what the coach had to say about his team’s penalty kill success, as well as his take on Zdeno Chara‘s highlight-reel goal, in the video above.
