Well now it’s Monday and game two is tonight! But before we get ready for game two tonight, let’s look back at how the Bruins destroyed the Islanders 5-2 in game 1 of the second round.
The Bruins Destroyed the Islanders 5-2 Because of David Pastrnak
David Pastrnak was the main man on Saturday night. Pastrnak found the net and quite often as he netted himself a hat trick to lead the charge. This is exactly what Pastrnak has to do. Now granted, I know we can’t expect a hat trick every game. But if the Bruins want to be successful, Pastrnak needs to be racking up points. Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand will do their part. But Pastrnak is the future of the Bruins and everyone knows it. If Pastrnak keeps this up, the Bruins will continue to make a deep playoff run.
The Bruins Destroyed the Islanders 5-2 Because of Tuukka Rask
Tuukka Rask was great again last night. He was 20/22 with a .909 save percentage on the night. Granted, one of the goals was a deflection. I’m sick and tired of hearing the Tuukka haters coming out. The Bruins are going to only go as far as Tuukka takes them at this point. If he’s off at all, the Bruins aren’t getting past the Islanders. And no Bruins fans, Jeremy Swayman isn’t coming into a playoff game anytime soon unless Tuukka gets hurt.
Who doesn’t love the Bruins destroying the Islanders 5-2 in game 1 of the second round? I know I do! But game 2 is tonight. Get the win and set yourself up with a 2-0 lead going into Long Island. Give me playoff hockey now!
