Bruins Steal One in Anaheim, Win 3-2 Over Ducks

Benoit Pouliot, Cam Fowler

The Boston Bruins have now won four of their last five games, ending the west coast trip with a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks. The Bruins have now opened up a five point lead over Ottawa and still have a game in hand.

Marty Turco recorded his first win since February 1st of 2011 Sunday night. After a slow first period the Bruins jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second. In games where the Bruins led by two at any point they have a record of 35-0-0.  Future hall of famer Teemu Selanne scored a power play goal in the second cutting the lead in half. The third line powered the Bruins to a win with two goals. The lamp behind Turco did light up three times, but the Ducks had a goal removed on a phantom goalie interference call.

Peverley Returns, Third Line Shines Again

Rich Peverley made his return to the Bruins line up against the Ducks as expected. Peverley skated well he logged almost 17 minutes of ice time and skated with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.

Beniot Pouliot, Chris Kelly, and Brian Rolston are by far the hottest line on the team and have developed some great chemistry. Pouliot and Rolston scored goals and Kelly assisted on both. All three players had points on both goals. Kelly is now on a five game point streak and Rolston is on a six game streak. What a job by Peter Chiarelli getting Rolston for virtually nothing.

Zdeno Chara scored his 12th goal of the year in game number 1001 of his career. Came on a wrist shot from the point not the feared slap shot, but just as effective if it’s on net.

Turco Time!

Turco played well for all three periods making 25 saves on 27 shots. His toughest test was the third period where the Ducks out shot the Bruins 14 to 7, and at one point had nine straight on Turco.

This win could give Turco and his new pads some confidence and Tim Thomas could finally get some rest before the playoffs.
