B'S FILIBUST THE SENATORS
Tim Thomas continued his domination of the Senators, and the Bruins won their 3rd and final game in Ottawa this season.
All the Bruins' scoring came in the 1st. Blake Wheeler notched 2 goals and an assist, finally doing something useful. I listened to some of this game on Ottawa's radio feed, and they kept talking about how big he is (6' 5", 205 lbs). But he still rarely plays that big, sort of in a Joe Thornton vein.
Krejci had a goal and assist in the 1st, as did Mark Recchi. Boychuck added 2 assists.
This was a key win for the Bruins within the division. These wins against Ottawa have kept the B's in 2nd place, instead of 3rd.
But the bad news is that Andrew Ference has an "undisclosed injury" and the already depleted Boston blue-line can ill afford more lost ice time.
Speaking of ice time, Miroslav Satan made his Bruins debut and logged 14:06. He took one shot, was +2, and had 2 takeaways.
Bruins host the 30-10-3 Blackhawks Thursday night. Be sure to check in on this game during Bama/Texas' commercial breaks. The last time these teams met, it was a thriller.
