It’s hard to say that the Boston Bruins have not been the beneficiaries of some wacky bounces in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
First, Charlie McAvoy swatted a puck out of midair to save a goal in the second period, then Brandon Carlo doubled the Bruins’ lead in the third period in wild fashion.
A dribbling puck hit the referee, helping the Bruins keep offensive zone possession. The puck trickled down to Carlo, who had no other play than to throw one towards the net. The knuckling puck bounced in front of Jordan Binnington and the hop gave the Blues goalie fits, sneaking under his arm and into the net to make it 2-0 at 2:31.
In a series that has not been void of some flips and flops, this one certainly worked out in the Bruins’ favor.
