Bruins special teams too much for Canes

Posted January 28, 2013
Updated January 29, 2013

— The special teams played more like the exceptional teams for the Boston Bruins Monday night in a 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.

Boston (4-0-1 , 9 pts.) remained unbeaten on the year after recording two power play goals, a short-handed goal and killing six Hurricanes man advantages. Boston also limited the Canes to just seven power play shots in nearly 11 and a half minutes of hockey with the extra skater.

“They’re aggressive. They are in our face, they are quick,” Eric Staal said. “You have got to move the puck quick, you have to make them tired. We will work to get better in that area for sure.” Boston scores late to beat Canes, 5-3 Slideshow: Boston scores late to beat Canes, 5-3

Boston struck twice in the first 6:15 of the game, both on special teams, to open the scoring in the game and forcing the Canes to play from behind.

Brad Marchand netted the first goal on a short-handed situation for the Bruins that better resembled 5-on-5 hockey as Carolina struggled to get comfortable. Just three minutes later, Zdeno Chara scored on a wrister from the point that was shielded in front of Cam Ward by Milan Lucic. That brought Patrick Dwyer out of the penalty box where he was serving for interference.

“We said before the game ‘A team like Boston is not going to beat themselves.’” head coach Kirk Muller said. “They challenged us and they pushed us and we weren’t able to respond in the first. We lost too many battles so our competitive level has got to be a little better.”

Carolina got a goal from Jamie McBain late in the first period to give the Canes some momentum heading into the first intermission. McBain, playing extended minutes for the injured Justin Faulk, logged 25:48 of ice time on a team-high 37 shifts. Carolina Hurricanes Logo Carolina Hurricanes schedule

After Boston went ahead 3-1 on a Nathan Horton goal, Carolina stormed back with two goals less than a minute apart to tie the game late in the second period. First Jeff Skinner extended his goals streak to four consecutive games as he scored his team-best fifth goal of the season. Exactly 50 seconds later, Staal scored his fourth of the year on a goal that was set up by Alexander Semin.

Boston, who has yet to surrender a third-period goal this season, held the Canes scoreless Monday night as well. They got the game-winner from David Krejci on a second-chance goal in front of Ward with less than two minutes to play and added an empty netter in the final seconds.

“They gave us a lesson on playing 60 minutes solid,” Muller said.

The Canes will have three days off before playing the Ottawa Senators at PNC Arena Friday.

Game Notes:
McBain's goal was the first first-period goal of the season for the Canes ... Semin was a plus-3 on the ice Monday, notching two assists; he is now plus-5 on the year ... Jordan Staal recorded an assist, extending his consecutive games streak with a helper to four… Carolina was 0-for-6 on the power play and are now 3-for-26 on the season… Tim Gleason received his second fighting major in as many games as he dropped the gloves with Milan Lucic in the first period… The Hurricanes were outshot for the first time all season (38-32)… Monday’s attendance was 17, 190.

    ...Unless WRAL has recently designated you as the screener of posts you need to shut up and stop with your boring troll comments. Now pack up your mini van with your juice boxes and get ready to head out to the game Friday night.

    While watching Cam during the last game he reminded me of Irbe. Cam was moving quite different than he usually does. Cam is usually a stand up Goalie. When he is playing well he challenges and stands tall blocking the angle with confidence until the moment when he needs to go to the butterfly or push to stop the puck. The Bruins game was quite different though. There were a couple times when he ended up on his back with feet in the air (essentially rolling through the crease) much the way I remember Irbe playing. Irbe was generally more successful with that unorthodox style though. He is quite a bit smaller than Cam and always made crazy stops by contorting himself in front of the net. Cam (in the bruins game) generally did not stop the shots when he went down with legs flying above him.

    Does anybody know if Cam is having trouble with an injury or something. Maybe he is shying away from the butterfly because he is hurt?

    Complete speculation on my part, but I do wonder.

    I second that. He did that on 2 goals that were scored against him, including the winning goal. Why not play Ellis. By the time Cam 'warms up' the season will be over.
