The Bruins’ fourth line is usually known for its energy and toughness. More often than not, Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton will draw acclaim for punching a player rather than a puck into the back of the net. That wasn’t the case on Tuesday.
Paille’s game-winning goal pushed the Bruins one game closer to eliminating the New York Rangers, as Boston grabbed a commanding 3-0 series lead with the win. If the fourth line keeps clicking as it has all postseason, the B’s could be moving on to the next round quite soon.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is giving Paille our “Fourth-Line Fireworks” player of the game award. Who gets yours?
