The Vegas Golden Knights stopped the great streak of the Boston Bruins (14 home wins in a row) after winning 4-3. Boston forward Taylor Hall commented on the match; "That's probably the way our streak was going to end,"-Taylor Hall said, as quoted by nhl.com.
"We battled back, we do everything we can to try and win the game, and ultimately a good team won against us." Bruce Cassidy, who used to be the coach of the Bruins, is happy about the reception from the Bruins fans. "I don't know what the reaction [was] going to be," Cassidy said.
"It was a really nice gesture by the Bruins organization. I appreciate it. All along, I've [had] a tremendous amount of respect for them." Boston coach Jim Montgomery is happy about his team's fight. They did not want to give up even for a moment.
"This is a great group of players to coach," Boston coach Jim Montgomery said. "They never quit, they never stop playing, they never stop believing. Down 3-0, we didn't start on time, that's unfortunate. We got beat through the middle of the ice too often tonight.
That usually doesn't happen to us."
Logan Thompson's saves
Logan Thompson had some great saves, especially after Charlie McAvoy's wrist shot. "To be honest, I thought he was going blocker," Thompson said. "And then he, last second, I was able to flick my hand up.
It always feels good being able to make those saves, and I'm already in the game. It gets you more into it, for sure." Cotter was the scorer of one goal. "That many games in a row without a point is unacceptable," Cotter said.
"I mean, it's going to happen; it's my first year. But if I play my game, I'm sure I should be able to get points, whether it's a weird tip-in or battle in front."
