A.B. The heart of the Boston Bruins and Selke trophy finalist, Patrice Bergeron, was mic’d up for last night’s playoff game 4 against the Detroit Red Wings.
Torey Krug’s goal from the point came at 10:14 in the second period with the Bruins down 2-0. It was the first of 3 that would give the Bruins the eventual overtime win.
Even though it was the first of 3, Krug’s goal was clearly the turning point in the game for the Bruins. The Red Wings who had come out strong in the first period and jumped to an early lead, began to wither as the Bruins began to dominate the pace of play.
Immediately after Krug scores you can hear the air being sucked out of Joe Louis Arena, the excited yet calm-under-pressure tone of the Bruins celebration and the never-quit attitude of the Black & Gold rallying around the “let’s go boys” urging of #37.
If the NHL was smart they would mic-up every player for every playoff game and release an NFL Films type production in the off season.
Sidenote – Florek immediately saying it wasn’t his goal (as if scoring would be a bad thing) “no I didn’t, that’s him,” was representative of just how team oriented this 2014 edition of the Boston Bruins truly are. Florek wanted nothing to do with adding a tally to the “G” column of his stat sheet. Instead, he wanted to celebrate an unbelievable shot by his teammate, Torey Krug.
