Win-Win Situation in Bruins’ Victory Over Islanders

Marty Turco didn’t have all that much work in the Bruins 6-3 win over the Islanders, stopping 19 out of 22 shots. Turco did stand tall at points in the game, making point-blank saves on multiple opportunities. That’s pretty much all you need from a backup goaltender, as he put his team in a position to get two points.

As the Bruins scored the first goal in the game late in the first period with all going well, it was safe to see it looked like the B’s were going to leave the Coliseum with a win. It was not so easy however, as the Islanders had been playing good hockey lately, winning five out of six games including sweeping the NHL’s finest Pittsburgh Penguins in a home-an-home series.

The Islanders showed their grit, netting a goal 29 seconds later as Kyle Okposo scored from a long distance, leading many to question how Turco could allow it. But, it was good enough to knot the game up at one entering the dressing room after one period.

After another Bruins goal, the Islanders showed that they were not going away easily by tying the game at two. Their goal came after good puck movement from John Tavares and Matt Moulson led to P.A. Parenteau tapping the puck in.

This Bruins team responded like any defending Stanley Cup champion team would do, scoring four goals in the third, including two unanswered goals to put the game out of reach.

Now, the Bruins have a couple reasons to be happy about this victory. First, they were able to get two points. Second, they were able to rest an aging Tim Thomas.
