Who would have guessed it? The Bruins open the eastern conference finals as visitors to the number one seeded Pittsburgh Penguins and handily win games one and two! These were wins of epic proportions, game one ended in a 3 – 0 shutout and last night the Bruins dismantled the Penguins 6 – 1. In most series this would be interesting, but to see a Pittsburgh offense that averages better than 4 goals per game in the playoffs score only one goal in two games is astounding. The Bruins are in uncharted territory, how will the Penguins respond and can the B’s bring the momentum home with them?
Even considering the last 2 games we have see many NHL series turn from 2 – 0 this season. Let’s hope that the Bruins are cautiously optimistic and they can continue to play solid defense through the rest of the series. Everyone here has there fingers crossed for 2 more wins and a continued run to win the Stanley Cup. Go Bruins!
