   The first period was completely scoreless until it appeared that Martin Necas scored to put Carolina in a 1-0 lead on a sharp-angle shot. However, it had been waved off an official review.

   Andrei Svechnikov put the Hurricanes in a 1-0 lead at 9:05 of the second period with a lacrosse-style goal from behind the net. It was Svechnikov’s 19th goal of the season (49 points; 19 goals, 30 assists). Pushing it to 2-0 at 6:55, Teuvo Teravainen recorded his 23rd goal of the season when he tapped in a centering pass from Svechnikov at the doorstep. With 3:04 remaining in the middle frame, Charlie McAvoy fired home his 12th of the season to pull the Bruins within 2-1 from the left circle off a one-timer.

   Jake Guentzel scored his sixth as a Hurricane to extend the lead to 3-1 at 9:46 of the third. Pavel Zacha went in to attempt to clear the puck, but it got in off Jeremy Swayman’s right leg after Guentzel shot at the left side and it glided past Swayman. Guentzel extended his point streak to six games (four goals, six assists), and he currently has 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) in just 15 games since he was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 7th. At 6:38, Seth Jarvis put in a short-handed goal for the 4-1 final, rebounding off his original with a wraparound off the rush. This was Jarvis’ 30th goal of the season, which is the first time he’s reached this mark.

Trent Frederic on the Bruins’ 4-1 loss against the Carolina Hurricanes: “I think we got them last time pretty good in their barn. Seemed like they came ready to play, got to give them credit. It was a tough-checking game to start and it seemed like they kind of took over a little more in the second, and obviously some more in the third too.”

Jeremy Swayman on what the Hurricanes do effectively: “I think they’re well-coached and they have a great team, we just have to accept that. It’s obviously not something we want to do in our home barn, but I think it’s good for us moving forward and understanding that no team’s going to be soft enough just because they have four games left in the season. So, it’s our job to get punched in the face and get back up, and that’s what we did tonight.”

Charlie McAvoy on the Bruins going into playoffs soon and the 4-1 loss: “I feel good. This is just one game tonight. It’s hard to win in this league and it was a grind overall. I think we’ve displayed how we can play, tonight we just didn’t do enough of it, but I think we’ve been working towards our game. Every team’s going to have a loss, we happened to have that tonight. They played better than us and definitely well enough to win. Overall, I think we’ve been building and we’ve been working good.”

The Boston Bruins hired General Manager Don Sweeney on May 20, 2015. Sweeney has signed 216 players, drafted 54, and made 42 trades since that time. Bruins fans would probably like to forget about some of the draft picks (especially the 1st round in 2015) and some of the trades (Kirill Kaprizov for a 5th-round […]

That certainly wasn’t a polite Game 2. I think every neutral fan should agree that officiating was questionable on both ends of the ice in Game 2, and I’m being nice when I word it that way. Leon Draisaitl throws a hit on Aleksandar Barkov that actually resulted in a cross-check to the face. Barkov […]
