The Boston Bruins just keep on winning. They’re first in the league with a mind-blowing 35-5-4 record, and they’re well on the way to breaking all kinds of team records in the NHL.
The Bruins trailed by a goal on Wednesday’s matchup against the Islanders. It’s not the first time the Bruins are behind this season, but their ability to come back in games and never press the panic button too early makes this team so great.
The Bruins just tire teams down, and the game against the Islanders was no exception. The Bruins dictated the play in the second period and scored with just 3:12 a part to turn the game around.
Charlie McAvoy, who grew up 30 minutes from the Islanders’ arena, scored the equalizer for his third goal of the season, and when the Bruins scored their third goal of the game, he had an assist on the goal.
And what an incredible goal it was.
The Bruins were on the powerplay, and they took the opportunity. Charlie McAvoy took the puck into the offensive zone, passed it to Marchand, and after some beautiful tic-tac-toe play, Marchand scored on a one-timer after a fantastic helper from David Pastrnak.
The Bruins are the team to beat at the moment, but it isn’t easy. And especially when they’re scoring tic-tac-toe goals like these.
Brad Marchand was happy after the game and praised the teams for the comeback and for not letting the game slip.
“We’re resilient, we’re able to find another level,” Marchand said. “We have experience, the older guys know how to play.″
