The Bruins won 5-3 at the TD Garden on Tuesday night in perhaps their best performance of the young season. After a 2 game nightmare against Montreal the B’s came home and stole a significant W to improve to 4-7 on the year. More importantly, Boston showed the heart and fire that carried them to a Stanley Cup victory last season.
Ottawa scored a pair of goals early in the first, but the Senators’ attack was eventually slowed by the Great Wall of Chara. Zdeno Chara played like a monster on the night after Halloween. Chara beat up Senators players against the boards all evening…and had 2 assists to boot.
Claude Julien’s team will try to build on Tuesday night’s momentum to rekindle their hopes of repeating as Stanley Cup Champs. The Bruins travel to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs on Saturday.
