Bruins Defeat Islanders Again To Start Weekend Back To Back Games

The Bruins yet again beat the Islanders, this time at TD Garden.  The Bruins are now 28-17-7, while the Islanders sit at 33-18-1.  It started early with a fight penalty between Ryan Stromer and Torey Krug, making it 4 on 4.  The next penalty was on Brad Marchand for tripping Anders Lee.  John Tavares scored a New York power play goal on the power play for it, Frans Nielsen and Travis Harmonic with assists on it.  Ryan Strome then got a second penalty for hooking against Gregory Campbell.  On that power play, Patrice Bergeron scored a non-assist goal.  It was 1-1, tie game to end the 1st period.  In the 2nd period, it was penalty-mania.  Reilly Smith was called for hooking against Brock Nelson.  Matt Martin was called for holding against Reilly Smith.  Lastly, Adam McQuaid was called for holding against Mikhali Grabovski.  In the 3rd period, more penalties with one goal, which would be the game decider.  It started with Brad Marchand high-sticking against John Tavares, the Islanders only player to score so far, he’s been a scoring star this year, scoring three times against the Bruins in the last 2 weeks.  Calvin De Haan was then called for holding against Brad Marchand.  Then came the game winner, with 8 minutes left on the clock.  Loui Eriksson SCORED!!!!!!   He was sure worth giving up Tyler Seguin for I guess.  Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg also had assists on that goal.  That was the ned of the game for goals and penalties, as the Bruins walk away with a 2-1 win.  For the second game of the weekend back to back games today at the Garden, the Bruins will face off with the Habs, or Montreal Canadiens.  According to my NHL Hat Trick Challenge Entry today, the B’s will beat the Habs.  Watch tonight at 7:30 PM to find out if I’m right, and read my recap post for that game tomorrow, when it will probably be a snow day for me, with us expecting another 12-18 inches of snow, after a quiet January and February without a break from it!
