Bruins seek repeat effort and complete sweep
It may well be that there hasn’t been another game this season in which the B’s rolled four lines so effectively, and got such solid and smart play from their rear guard. Not to mention a typically fine Tuukka Rask game.
Only the superb play of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (32 saves) prevented a blowout Tuesday night, as the B’s repeatedly out-skated and out-competed the home team, forcing turnovers all over the ice and controlling the puck in the offensive zone much of the night.
Let’s amend that statement slightly. The Rangers want to be a heavy team and strong on the puck, but in this one, those attributes belonged only to the Bruins.
“We felt like we were playing some pretty good hockey,” said Campbell. “We know that in the playoffs things can change pretty quickly.”
“I couldn’t see behind (Lundqvist), hence the reason I put my arms up,” said Thornton.
