The first line, dubbed the Perfection Line, combined for three goals and 11 points in the game as Patrice Bergeron has two goals and one assist, Brad Marchand had a goal and three assists, and David Pastrnak had four assists.

While most of the lineup is set in stone for Monday's matchup, one spot to keep tabs on as the game progresses is the third-line center position. "He gave us more than a chance to win early on when we were still trying to find our legs".

The Penguins' goaltending situation wasn't helpful either in game two, as Matt Murray let up three goals that should have been stopped. He now has three goals in the postseason.

"It's another character win for us". "Obviously we had to win it, but it's one game, so". "It kind of bit us in the ass". On the man-advantage, Bergeron got the puck back to Pastrnak on the right point.

Another contribution to the win was the stellar play of goaltender Tuukka Rask.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the House Crisanta Duran said it should be up to teachers to choose whether or not they should strike. State Senate Bill 264 originally sought to prohibit public school teachers and teacher organizations from striking.

The B's tied the game 1-1 at 18:30 on defenseman Charlie McAvoy's first goal of the playoffs. Rask lost the blade on his left skate and was floundering in the crease looking for a stoppage in play.

"I honestly believe this year our mindset is, we can play with anybody", Cassidy said, per Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe. "That's what happened to us a lot".

Rask also commented on his burst of emotion saying, "I didn't throw it at anybody". "I just wanted to make sure everyone saw that my blade was off". A reporter told Sidney Crosby that on the replay, it looked like Patric Hornqvist's attempt crossed the goal line in Game 2.

Before the game begins, you can get caught up on everything you need to know in News Channel 8's Road to the Cup pregame special. That's what my focus was.

The Bruins are a very physical team, as can be noted by just about any game the Lightning has played against them this season. Hopefully, Game 2 will be no different. Top-line winger Jake Guentzel called Malkin's potential return a "game-changer", restoring one of their most risky options on the power play and at even strength after a season in which the 31-year-old forward put up 98 points. After getting drilled by left winger Alex Killorn in the Bruins zone and struggling to get up, DeBrusk blocked a shot from Yanni Gourde and then proceeded to make a diving play to get the puck out of the zone.

"With every round, you have to elevate your game, your intensity, everything", Cooper said. Many people are anticipating this going to seven games as the teams bat back and forth with scoring. Now what will it do about it?This playoff series began one team short.
