Brock Nelson was a beast tonight for the Isles. Everyone knows their role on a team coached by Trotz and they've all bought in. Bringing in Palmieri was an excellent move, and picking up Pageau in free agency another. Hats off to bad,bad, Brad Marchand. Of all the B's, he's the one that showed up ready to play, scoring both of their goals. What a player. Might be the last game we see Rask with the B's. Now the Isles have to face the Lightning....again in the division finals. Best overall balanced team in hockey. Tough sledding for sure.Bruins vs Islanders, end of the second period as I type this and the score is 4-1 New York,... it's over for Boston.
Islanders are physically dominant and absolutely skating circles around them. Bruins can't get out of second gear while the Islanders are in fifth gear. Rask looks he is off or hurt in some way,... and made a great pass to an Islander player from behind the net who landed up netting it. Perhaps Cassidy should have given Swayman the star.
Hmmm,... Bruins just got a power play goal(which seems the only way they can score),... now 4-2 with about 14 minutes left in the third,... should I erase this post?,.... naaahhh.
