Entering the Eastern Conference finals, a major storyline was whether or not the Bruins would be able to keep up with Pittsburgh’s vaunted offense. But through the first two games, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin & Co. have been nowhere to be found.
Instead, it’s been the Bruins’ top two lines that have dominated. In a 6-1 rout in Game 2 on Monday, Boston’s top six forwards combined for five goals. In the series, they have scored eight of the Bruins’ nine goals. Pittsburgh’s top six? Zero goals. The Penguins’ lone tally in the two contests came off the stick of Brandon Sutter, their fourth-line center.
Bruins alternate captain Patrice Bergeron, who lit the lamp 27 seconds into the third quarter Monday night, addressed his team’s offensive success and more at the podium after the game. Check out what he had to say in the video above.
