Bruins Vs. Islanders Recap: Boston Trumps New York 6-2

Monday night’s game between the Bruins and Islanders, which emanated from the TD Garden in Boston, Mass., is officially in the books.

The B’s won the game by a score of 6-2, but they lost Daniel Paille in the process. The left wing was forced to leave the game in the second period after eating a slapshot from New York defenseman Steve Staios.

It was a temporary blow to Boston’s offense, not that anyone would have noticed. That’s because the boys from Beantown blew it open in the third period with three unanswered goals.

Milan Lucic (assisted by Nathan Horton and David Krejci) tipped one in at the 4:34 mark to put Boston up by two before Nathan Horton (assisted by Joe Corvo and Dennis Seidenberg) wristed one in to give the Bruins a 5-2 lead.

David Krejci (assisted by Zdeno Chara and Milan Lucic) put the game on ice by backhanding one in from 20 feet out at 17:12 and that was a wrap from Boston.

Your final score: Bruins 6, Islanders 2.

Daniel Paille Injury: Bruins Left Wing Leaves Islanders Game After Puck To The Face

If the Boston Bruins are going to hold on to their 5-2 lead and defeat the New York Islanders, they’re going to have to do it without left wing Daniel Paille.

That’s because the French Canadian was sent to the locker room after defenseman Steve Staios tagged him with a slapshot from the right point.

Despite painting the ice of the TD Garden with a few pints of blood, Paille skated to the locker room under his own power.

It seems that Boston has taken the injury personally, as the B’s have roared back and scored two goals following the bloodbath.

Milan Lucic (assisted by Nathan Horton and David Krejci) tipped one in at the 4:34 mark to put Boston up by two before Nathan Horton (assisted by Joe Corvo and Dennis Seidenberg) wristed one in to give the Bruins a 5-2 lead.

Stay tuned for more updates to Paille’s injury as they become available.

Bruins Vs. Islanders Score: Boston Leads New York 3-2 End Of Second Period

We’re two periods into the Bruins Vs. Islanders game from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, where the hometown boys lead their New York rivals by a score of 3-2.

After five goals were scored in the opening frame, both teams settled in on defense, keeping the puck out of the net and holding it to a one score game.

The Bruins may want to consider themselves lucky in that regard, having spent some time in the penalty box for two separate infractions.

The first came when left winger Milan Lucic sat for two minutes for being mean to Travis Hamonic (roughing). Unfortunately for New York, they were unable to capitalize on the power play, thanks to a couple of big-time saves by goaltender Tuukka Rask.

Shortly thereafter, Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara was benched for two minutes after hooking forward Brian Rolston at the 14:28 mark. Again, the visitors couldn’t get past Rask and had to settle for a goose egg.

Can the B’s keep the lead? Stay tuned.
