Going into the afternoon tilt, one probably thought it was going to be a defensive battle for 60 minutes.
Instead, 7 goals were scored with the New York Rangers coming out on top over the Boston Bruins by a score of 4-3. It was not easy but the Rangers did what they had to do to win.
For starters, the team was able to get two big ones in the first period on goals by Ruslan Fedotenko and Carl Hagelin. The goals came 1:10 apart as the team took advantage of a somewhat tired Bruins hockey club coming off a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders yesterday afternoon at the TD Garden.
However, Bruins’ head coach Claude Julien called a timeout after the second Blueshirts’ goal and did not say a word. Sometimes, silence really is golden.

From Joe Haggerty at CSNNE.com:
Claude Julien is apparently tired of seeing his critical words about members of the Bruins get, in his words, “twisted” by the media, so he told reporters Tuesday he will no longer talk about individual players.
It could be for the time being, or it could be for the rest of the season.
Without referencing specifics, the Bruins coach said his words have been “twisted” and that he’s been criticized by media members for “throwing players under the bus” when he talks critically of them.
The message is clearly about Julien’s comments last week about struggling defenseman Dennis Wideman, and the reaction that it sparked both inside and outside the locker room. But he never got into specifics during a largely testy exchange with a group of assembled print, web and television reporters at Ristuccia Arena.
“I’m just going to keep my answers pretty plain, because when I say too much some people tend to twist it whatever way they want,” said Julien. “So I’m just going to keep it to internal things.”
