And just like that the Bruins found themselves up 4-0.
But the B’s got the ultimate revenge by potting three unanswered goals.
First, Matt Grzelcyk picked off the puck in the neutral zone that jumpstarted Charlie McAvoy finding Trent Frederic who redirected the puck into the net to make it 2-0.
Then the top line did what it does with some beautiful puck movement that led to Patrice Bergeron finishing off the tic-tac-toe with a goal for the 3-0 edge.
But they weren’t done just yet when Marchand tapped in a goal off a nice feed from Grzelcyk to extend the lead to 4-0.
That was enough for the Capitals to replace Vitek Vanecek with Ilya Samsonov.
