The Bruins have forced a game 7 against the Carolina Hurricanes which will take place at 4:30 pm EST on Saturday in Raleigh, North Carolina. Per Ty Anderson, this is the Bruins NHL-record 29th Game 7 and 13th Game 7 since 2008. Like the Bruins’ core group of guys, Bruins fans also know this situation all too well. However, the Hurricanes have been knocking on this door against the Bruins for quite some time. Here is a little set up prior to the game.
Bruin’s depth sets the tone ahead of Game 7
What has come to sound like a broken record when it comes to the Bruins and the playoffs is their lack of depth scoring outside the “Perfection line”. That has been the story for the most in this series with the Hurricanes. That changed last night in Game 6, however, with contributions from Erik Haula, Charlie Coyle, Curtis Lazar and even Derek Forbort. Three of the four goals came from 5 on 5 play and not from special teams.
Swayman comes up big for the Bruins
The stats really are not indicative of how well Jeremy Swayman played last night. Making huge stops early on when tested gave the Bruins a chance to take the lead. There is no question the Bruins will turn to the rookie goaltender for Game 7. The Bruins and Hurricanes are also one of three Game 7’s to be played on Saturday. Winner will advance to the second round and play against the winner of the Penguins and Rangers series.
