Stanley Cup Game 3: Hard to Watch

  • There’s nothing wrong with Patrice Bergeron. He could go down as the best Bruins forward of all time. That’s saying something.
  • Torey Krug. Four power-play points in just 2:06 PP time.┬áDamn.

  • The game was hard to watch. The best part? Hockey Night in Canada ran a long highlight reel of Bobby Orr’s greatness during Coach’s Corner. It was beautiful to watch. And it kept Don Cherry off the screen and quiet for a couple minutes. WIN-WIN.
  • I applaud Craig Berube’s challenge of the third goal. He knew the bull was already out of the barn. It would have been 2-0, but quickly became 4-0.
  • Jordan Binnington wasn’t great, but it’s really his first struggle of 2019. So, cut him some slack. Besides, Jake Allen is NOT the answer.
  • Brayden Schenn’s flip following a missed hit on David Pastrnak was scary. Pasta saw him just in time and leaned back. If he hadn’t, he would have been flattened. Or worse — Schenn’s skate would have sliced his throat. Shudder.
  • Back to Bergeron. He now has seven power-play goals this postseason. That’s two shy of Mike Bossy’s record for most in a postseason. Beast.
