Sean Kuraly Reveals Why He’s So Good At Coming Through In Big Moments


August 16, 2020

Sean Kuraly has provided the Bruins plenty of clutch goals in four seasons with Boston.

The center did it again Saturday afternoon, collecting a shorthanded goal just 1:16 into the third period of the B’s eventual 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes at Scotiabank Arena during Game 3 of their first-round playoff series.

It was Kuraly’s first goal of the postseason, and it wound up being the game-winner.

This is a role both Kuraly and Bruins fans have grown accustomed to since the 27-year-old joined the squad in 2016. So, what’s the source of his motivation?

“Well, I think it’s just a fun time of year,” Kuraly told Bruins reporter Eric Russo. “I think it’s a product of a good team. And when you have a good team around you, it makes those plays possible. And if we’re not in these positions in these playoff games … its just a product of having good role models around and good leadership, good teammates, good linemates, good guys to be on the ice with. I think that’s just a byproduct of a lot of other good things. Sometimes it ends up going in the net off my stick, but there’s a whole lot of other stuff going on.”

Puck drop for Game 4 of the Bruins-Hurricanes series is slated for Monday at 8 p.m. ET. Perhaps we’ll see more Kuraly magic then.
