Bruins crushed in Game Two        

 

The Boston Bruins find themselves staring at a very large 0-2 hole after seeing their offence completely dry up in Philadelphia. They could only muster a single goal in a 5-1 drubbing last night.

 

The first period saw no scoring, but it was an equally played period with chances on both sides. The second period is where the wheels started to come off. Former Bruin Steve Duchesne opened the scoring 5 minutes in, then scored his second of the game 5 minutes later to make it 2-0.

 

“I didn’t like the way that our first line played last night,” said coach Guevremont. “They’re expected to produce, and they have been chasing these first two games. Something has to change there.”

 

In the third, John LeClair made it 3-0 a minute and a half in. Alex Mogilny scored his first of the playoffs on the powerplay to give them some life, but it was quickly snuffed out by Eric Lindros on a Flyers powerplay, and last year's Bruin playoff killer, Carey Wilson, scored with under a minute left and the Bruins pressing to ice it.

 

The bottom line is that Boston is not getting any scoring from their top goal scorer in Theo Fleury and Ziggy Palffy needs to be more accountable as well. They say that a series isn’t over until a team loses on home ice, well it could be tomorrow night back in Boston if they continue to play this way.

 

GAME STARS:

 

3. Carey Wilson

2. Steve Duchesne

1. John LeClair

 

GAME NOTES:

 

-The Bruin PP went 1 for 4 and the PK went 3 for 4

-Owen Nolan went down in the second and did not return. He appears to be out day to day.

-Dmitri Mironov may be returning next game, which would send Jamie Macoun back to the press box.
