Bruins Stage Comeback In Pittsburgh

Posted by Ace Staff on November 10th, 2010

Mark Recchi contributed a goal in the first period and two assists in the third as part of Boston’s 7-4 comeback victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday at CONSOL Energy Center. The Bruins were down 4-2 at the start of the final block when Nathan Horton and Zdeno Chara found the net just 15 seconds apart to even the score. Shawn Thornton netted the go-ahead goal 12:40 into the period before Blake Wheeler and Milan Lucic added the insurance in the remaining minutes. “Obviously, ideally we don’t want to put ourselves in the situations where we’ve got to come back like that,” said Boston goalie Tim Thomas after collecting a season-high 42 saves. “But if we’re in that situation we know we’re not out of it.” Thomas extended his franchise record in the process by winning his eighth consecutive decision to start a season. Boston will now look ahead to a tough opponent in the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the TD Garden. Boston Bruins tickets are now available!

Knuble, Capitals Edge Penguins in OT

Posted by Ace Staff on March 25th, 2010

Mike Knuble found the net for his first ever shootout goal to pull the Washington Capitals ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3, concluding Wednesday’s OT thriller at the Verizon Center in DC. In a rivalry that primarily features NHL stand-outs Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, it was Knuble who came through in the final round to steal the spotlight. The Capitals have now won all three games against the Penguins with a chance to sweep for the year when they meet again in two weeks. Ovechkin was thrilled in regards to the way his team stepped up last night, saying “It was mentally a very important win for us. We know they have a very good team. They miss Gonchar and Malkin, but they’re still the Stanley Cup champions.” Washington has built a great deal of momentum looking ahead to their remaining regular season contests, scoring two or more goals in their last 32 games. They are next scheduled to matchup with the Carolina Hurricanes tonight while the Penguins prepare for a Saturday showdown against the Philadelphia Flyers.

B’s Knock Cooke, Fall to Guins

Posted by Ace Staff on March 19th, 2010

Goalie Marc-Andre Fluery collected 17 saves as Penguins offense went to work through all three periods to defeat the Boston Bruins 3-0 yesterday at the TD Garden. Bruins fans and players alike were more focused on retaliation against Matt Cooke following his cheap shot towards Marc Savard in a contest two weeks back. Cooke was never issued a suspension, despite the severity of Savard’s head injury. Shawn Thornton couldn’t wait a minute to throw gloves and brawl. The 7-year veteran found Cooke five seconds into competition and proceeded to connect a few combos as the Boston crowd went wild. “We certainly defended our teammate well,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “The other part of the game wasn’t there.” After tensions settled, Tyler Kennedy was able to net the go-ahead goal 8:34 into the first period. Alexei Ponikarovsky eventually followed up with a score to end the second block. Mike Rupp then supplied the final dagger with 14:46 left in regulation. The Penguins will next face off against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday as the Bruins prepare to host the New York Rangers the following day.

Penguins Edge Bruins, Savard Sidelined

Posted by Ace Staff on March 8th, 2010

Boston Bruins center Marc Savard suffered a concussion after Matt Cooke delivered a blindside hit with 5:37 left in Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. No penalty was issued despite the obvious severe contact, as it took doctors several minutes to clear him off the ice. “A guy like that has to be suspended,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “That’s the way I see it because it’s an elbow to the head from the blindside, and that’s exactly the example they show, what we’ve got to get out of this game. We got a guy who’s got a concussion, our best player, and he’s going to be out for a while. He was out on the ice for a bit and that’s unacceptable.” The Penguins in their efforts snapped Boston’s five-game road streak, rallying for two goals in the final two periods to earn their 40th win of the season. Blake Wheeler found the net first for the Bruins only score 3:12 into the contest. Pittsburgh kept the pressure on, posting 33 shots on goal to Boston’s 22. The Bruins are next scheduled to face off against the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow night at 7:00 PM. Purchase your Bruins tickets with us at Ace!
