Bruins Wrap: Boston Victoriously Escapes Close Game Vs. Stars

Hall delivered again on Tuesday


Oct 25, 2022

BOSTON — The Boston Bruins continue to build early season momentum, winning their third-consecutive contest and defeating the Dallas Stars, 3-1, on Tuesday at TD Garden.

The Bruins improved to 6-1-0 on the season, while the Stars fell to 4-2-1.

Check out the full box score here.

The Bruins entered their first meeting against the Stars fresh off a crunch-time victory over the Minnesota Wild and managed to also come away on top in yet another close contest.

Like Saturday’s win, it was Taylor Hall who came through in the high-leverage situation for Boston. The 30-year-old winger, again, broke up an even score (1-1), this time in the second period to assist the Bruins in retaking the lead over Dallas. With the tie-breaker, Hall has netted a goal in three-consecutive games thus far with the Bruins.

Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark held the Stars scoreless in the opening and final periods of the game. Ullmark finished with 29 saves on 30 shots faced.

Boston remains undefeated at home.

— Hall delivered the Bruins with the go-ahead goal, which ultimately served as the game-decider. Hall’s one-timer was his fourth goal of the season off assists from David Pastrnak (7) and Matt Grzelcyk (3).

— David Pastrnak got the Bruins offense going early, delivering in the first period with a one-time power-play goal. Pastrnak netted his fifth goal in seven games thus far, ripping the puck past Stars goalie Jake Oettinger and off the assist from Boston defenseman Hampus Lindholm. The 26-year-old also assisted Hall’s goal in the second period.

— Stars center Wyatt Johnston supplied the equalizer for Dallas, scoring early in the second period to notch the 19-year-old’s third goal of the season.

DraftKings Sportsbook set the odds of Pastrnak serving as the game’s first scorer at +900 entering the contest. In the first period of play, Pastrnak cleared that wager, netting a rocket during Boston’s power play. A $100 bet on Pastrnak prior to puck drop, would’ve resulted in a $1,000 total payout.

The Bruins will remain on home ice for one more contest before hitting the road, next taking on the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday. Puck drop from TD Garden is set for 7 p.m. ET, and you can catch the game, along with an hour of pregame coverage, live on NESN.
