Boston Bruins won 3:2 against Detroit Red Wings. Patrice Bergeron, the goal scorer, is pleased with the chemistry in the team and the great streak they are having. "It's been fun. It's a great team," Bergeron said, as quoted by nhl.com "Great team chemistry as well, and I think [that guys] stick together, but obviously our depth is something we want to rely on." Red Wings coach Derek Lalonde believes that his team could have done more, but the second half was very bad for them.
"Second period burnt us," Red Wings coach Derek Lalonde said. "Our four penalties happened in the first 30-35 minutes (of the game), and it's just too much on our group. And it just gives their top guys too much momentum. So it's unfortunate because we had a really good opportunity." A.J.
Greer emphasized the initiative of the opponent at the very start. However, his team showed what was expected of them. "[Detroit] pushed hard in the beginning of the game, and I thought in the second period we played our best hockey.
Bruins hockey," Greer said. "It was just relentless and offensive driven, connected. A little slip [in the] third, but again, we're looking at it as, you know, we just got to make sure to overcome these hardships and these push backs that team gave us."
Dylan Larkin on his team
Dylan Larkin emphasized that this was a difficult night for his team, which could certainly have done more.
"Tough swing there," Larkin said. "We think we go up 3-1, and they call the penalty late. … But we responded well, and we had a good third period. We just came up short, and it was really hard tonight, but I thought it was a good effort because we battled a lot out there." Lalonde believes that the opponents showed their real game when it was most needed.
"[The Bruins] show why they're the team they are," Lalonde said. "They push in the second. Their goalie is the Vezina winner with the way he played in the third, and they found a way in the end. But again, I'm most encouraged, at 2-2, the play of our third (period)."
