The Boston Bruins have saved one pattern constant of their first-round, best-of-seven playoff sequence towards the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Bruins have gained all three residence video games and misplaced all three highway video games. B’s head coach Bruce Cassidy was requested why there was such a disparity in play based mostly on which group held home-ice benefit.
“Timely power-play goals here helped a little more than up there,” Cassidy stated. “They got a couple the other night, their power play struggled and they generated some good looks, scored. On the flip-side penalty kill, I think that’s been an issue at times for both teams and when you win it’s usually good and it was very good for us tonight. We got, like I said, very important kills in the second period. So that special team’s flip is one thing that certainly has tilted the series on home ice for both teams.”
The Bruins scored on one-of-three power-play alternatives and had 5 profitable penalty kills on six makes an attempt.
The Bruins will play their winner-take-all Game 7 towards the Hurricanes on Saturday in PNC Arena, the time of sport has but to be decided.
