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.
