Haggs: ‘Big Character Win’ For Boston Bruins After Humbling Loss |BHN+

Published

on

The Boston Bruins positively needed a response to Tuesday night’s embarrassing loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

It didn’t matter what the reasons were behind the top-to-bottom humbling defeat or whether or not the B’s are ever going to match up against the Canes after getting outscored 10-1 in two losses at the hands of Carolina this season.

The Bruins needed to show something, and they got it in a gutsy victory over an undermanned Washington Capitals team that saw the B’s lose both Brad Marchand and Anton Blidh to borderline hits in a 4-3 win at TD Garden on Thursday night. David Pastrnak scored a pair of goals, Patrice Bergeron added one in the third period (that was later changed to a Jake DeBrusk goal) before Charlie McAvoy scored the power play game-winner in the final minute of regulation.

It was exactly the tenor of response that the Black and Gold needed after getting humbled by the Hurricanes just 48 hours prior to that.
