Bitz Helps Bruins Bust Out Against Panthers

The best thing about the Bruins offense is that on any given night, a player can contribute to the team’s win. An unkown rookie right winger from the fourth line helped the Bruins cause Tuesday night. Byron Bitz (who?) scored two goals in a 6-1 B’s win.

Tim Thomas was solid in net as well, stopping 24 of the 25 shots he face. He had 15 consecutive saves in the second and third periods as he held the Panthers at bay and gave them no chance at making a comeback.

The Bruins led 2-1 after a close first period. Patrice Bergeron scored his sixth goal within the first minute of the game, and Mark Stuart added his fifth goal just six minutes later. The Panthers got one back, though, with Kamil Kreps scoring his second goal of the year at 13:34.

Bitz gave the B’s a comfortable 3-1 edge 15 minutes into the second period, and then the Bruins blew the game wide open in the third. Outshooting the Panthers 18-9 in the final period, the Bruins scored three goals, including Bitz’s second of the game less than four minutes in. Aaron Ward and Michael Ryder also scored.

Lately, they seem to out-shoot every opponent, and more often than not, that will translate into a win. Tuesday night, the Bruins had 39 shots on goal, while the Panthers had 25.

The Bruins will look to build on this win Thursday night against the Ducks.
