(For a full recap of Game 1, click here. This post includes Pierre McGuire’s interview with Boston Bruins forwards Nathan Horton and David Krejci.)
If any team should know that one win doesn’t tell the whole story of a seven-game series, it should be the Bruins. Honestly, many of the returning players from that 2010 semifinals collapse against the Philadelphia Flyers will tell you that three games only mean so much.
That being said, you cannot fault the B’s for feeling content for at least the rest of Saturday. They absolutely dominated the Flyers in Game 1, scoring five of the first six goals and winning 7-3 overall. Brian Boucher allowed five of those tallies while Sergei Bobrovsky was beaten twice in his short relief appearance. Tim Thomas allowed three goals of his own in Game 1, but that was an acceptable price to pay in such a one-sided game.
As an added bonus, here’s the Net Cam highlights for both teams’ as well. You know, just in case you were wondering if these goalies could stop anything …
