The Boston Bruins pushed aside the reeling Ottawa Senators — again.
Ryan Spooner scored twice and Tuukka Rask made 25 saves in the Bruins’ 5-0 victory over the Senators on Saturday night.
Noel Acciari, David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron also scored for the Bruins, 5-1 winners over the Senators on Wednesday night in Boston. Rask had his second shutout of the season and 40th overall.
Sean Kuraly provided a screen for Acciari, who beat Condon off his backhand for a 2-0 advantage. Just over two minutes later, Ben Harpur, looking to shoot the puck in at the blue line, had his shot picked off by Spooner, who broke in alone and beat Condon through the legs.
Jamaal Charles Mens Jersey Krejci, returning to the lineup after missing six games with an upper-body injury, then picked up Charlie McAvoy’s rebound and tucked it in at the side of the net on the power play. The Bruins took a 5-0 lead in the opening minutes of the third when Bergeron tipped Torey Krug’ shot for their third power-play goal of the game.
The Bruins opened the scoring at 8:13 of the first on the man advantage. After a couple of solid saves by Condon, a rebound popped right out to Spooner.
Devin McCourty Mens Jersey A player with sideline-to-sideline range, Edwwards helped spearhead one of the top defenses in the country. The sixth-ranked Badgers (13-1), who set a school record for wins, also return Ryan Connelly and Chris Orr to form a playmaking inside linebacker group.
But Wisconsin faces heavy losses in the secondary, as well at outside linebacker and defensive line.
Defending NFC champs against biggest one-season turnaround in the NFL? Yes, please.
The marquee names in the NFC may be largely absent this year (no Cowboys, Packers, Seahawks or Giants from last January, for example), but a showdown like this will do just fine. The LA Coliseum has not hosted an NFL playoff game since 1994, and the Rams have not played a postseason game there since 1979 鈥?seven years before coach Sean McVay was born.
