There might not be many goals in this Bruins-Rangers playoff series, but the ones that come will certainly count. With both defensive-minded teams being as careful as possible in their own ends, offense is coming at a premium in Game 1. That’s not anything that’s likely to change as the play continues, but one thing is for sure: there will be more goals.
There have to be, after all. It’s the playoffs. There’s no shootout waiting if a stalemate isn’t ended after five minutes of overtime. They will play as long as they have to — and with these two teams, it might be a while.
