I am aware of how behind I am on this season when it comes to everything, but this is the first time I have actually found to actually post anything.
Last night, the Bruins played a long fought game against the Philadelphia Flyers that eventually led to overtime. We blew up a 2 goal lead in the 3rd, where the Flyers scored 3 unanswered goals to pick up the two points. Matt Beleskey was out of the lineup with a undisclosed upper body injury, and forward Brett Connolly scored his first goal as a Boston Bruin.
This game may not be great due to the score, but overall, the team player really great, and we were still able to gather one point to get further in the standings.
The next game for the Bruins is Friday October 23rd, at Barclays Center, where they will play Johnny Boychuk and the New York Islanders.
