Bruins Game 35 Recap: Winning is always fun.

Giving up early leads stinks. Andy Brickley likes to repeat his “catchup hockey is losing hockey” line a whole lot, but he’s right. The B’s gave up a really quick lead in the first period tonight, making it look like another uphill battle for the team. Instead of making us wait though, the Bruins scored less than a minute later to tie the game. Even better, they took their first lead of the night less than a minute later while the public address announcer was reading out the official scoring on the previous goal. It’s always nice when that happens.

Things tied up early in the third period when a shot from Andre Benoit found the back of the goal and bounced out so quickly that only a replay proved that it ever went in at all. Boston continued to fight back and manged to pull ahead for good after Nathan Horton picked up a rebound midway through the period. The team held off the Senators for the rest of the period and survived a shorthanded situation in the last minute to gain the win. Tonight’s game was a lot faster than most recent Bruins games have been, and it shows in the number of shots that both teams came up with. Starting netminder Anton Khudobin wound up with 45 saves on the night, and only allowed two goals. Maybe this faster style of play has something to do with the impending arrival of Jaromir Jagr? Maybe the team has heard enough about how difficult it’s been to watch them lately? Who knows. The next Bruins contest is against the Devils in Boston on Thursday night. It’s expected to be Jagr’s debut with the team, so be sure to watch.
