Bruins Claw Out A Point: Lose In Overtime

After the first period, no one would expect the Bruins to have gotten a point.  They battled back but the Washington Capitals edged them out in overtime. It took all of 23 seconds for the Caps to score and is basically summed up in one tweet.

It was such a weak goal. There is nothing that Rask could do.  Then just under 8 minutes into the 1st-period disaster struck again. Justin Williams scored another WEAK goal which was his second of the game and his 4th of the season. Also in the first period, Patrice Bergeron had a big hit on Matt Niskanen.

Then the 2nd period was where the Bruins shined. They came out of the gate electric. It looked as if they would have no results but Dominic Moore scored his 7th goal of the season late in the second period. He actually stole the goal from Anton Blidh but no one needs to know that. Then the man who is on fire David Pastrnak flat out out-muscled Caps center Evgeny Kuznetsov  and dangled himself to his 16th goal of the season.

Then we got to the third period and Colin Miller scored a powerplay goal to tie the game. It was his second goal of the season. The powerplay was caused by a dirty hit by Tom Wilson. Blidh was okay but Kevan Miller looked like he wanted to kill Wilson. The game continued to get chippy and not to brag but this was a pretty great tweet.

Guys thank you thank you I know I am the next comedic genius to grace this planet.

The Bruins kept up the play and the game went into overtime. They got one point but were still looking for the W. The Bruins started off overtime with a great chance by Brad Marchand but Niklas Backstrom scored after an overall meltdown by the Bruins. After a long shift, David Krejci went for a change but David Pastrnak decided he needed one too. This lead to a 2 one 1 rush and there was nothing Tuukka Rask and the Bruins could do.

Overall it was a quality game for the Bruins. Tuukka had some great saves and they managed to get a point out of a game where no one expected it. Next up for the Bruins is the Colorado Avalanche tonight at the Garden.
