Things very much were up in the air when the Boston Bruins took the ice in the third period of Game 4 of their Stanley Cup playoff second-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Boston held a 2-1 lead and had some pretty sloppy stretches of play, including a power play that had looked lackluster since scoring in the first period.
But the B’s struck twice in the third, with Sean Kuraly providing insurance, and Patrice Bergeron potting his second power-play goal of the night to move Boston’s man advantage to 2-for-6 and seal the Bruins’ 4-1 win.
Bergeron picked up a rebound after a David Pastrnak shot from the right face-off dot could not be corralled by Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.
Take a look.
After a quiet offensive night in Game 3, the Bruins picked up some much-needed momentum Thursday, and now will head back to Boston with the series tied up at two games apiece.
