With about 100 seconds left in Saturday’s game, the Boston Bruins were clinging onto a one-goal lead against the one-win New Jersey Devils. After a double-minor high sticking call against Torey Krug, followed by a delay of game penalty on Patrice Bergeron, the Bruins would be outnumbered by two. Exit Martin Brodeur, approximately 39 minutes later than everyone would have guessed after allowing three goals on eight shots in the first period, enter the extra attacker for the Devils, who were already two for three on the power play, and you’d double the amount of New Jersey skaters on the ice against Boston’s.
It only took 23 seconds for the Devils to score twice on the power play to take the lead and the eventual 4-3 win.
Game of seconds, right?
Before the puck even dropped, one could imagine what the Boston Bruins and San Jose Sharks would look like on the ice based on what they did the night before. You’d probably guess that the Bruins would seem lifeless after coming off of a 5-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres, while the San Jose Sharks would appear well-rested after having the night off in Boston, preparing for their game against last season’s Eastern Conference Champions.
You’d guess right.
After the Sharks outshot the Bruins 16-3 in the first period, it became painfully obvious which team was more prepared. For 59:59.52 of the hockey game, the Sharks had the upper-hand, even after Jarome Iginla opened up the scoring with his first goal as a Bruin late in the second period.
Hockey games are 60 minutes long for a reason.
