The Boston Bruins Are Back In Their Series Against The Carolina Hurricanes

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

The Bruins rediscovered a much-needed spark Friday night, with timely goaltending from Jeremy Swayman and a pair of power-play goals (David Pastrnak and Taylor Hall), and tiptoed away from what looked a fast exit from the postseason.

Their 4-2 win over the Hurricanes at the Garden, in the wake of two dispiriting losses in Carolina, left the Bruins in a 2-1 deficit in the best-of-seven Round 1 playoff series.

But in playoff hockey, emotion counts, and often counts for a lot, and especially so for the Bruins when they have the force of 17,565 believers, some still dressed in faded No. 4 Bobby Orr sweaters, filling their building in the old West End.

“We know what’s at stake,” said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, noting what he felt was the club’s “calm” start. “The crowd gives you a lift, obviously, you score a huge goal ...”

The Boston Bruins Limp Home Down 0-2 To The Carolina Hurricanes

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

The Bruins were back on Tobacco Road Wednesday and, come night’s end, it looked as if their playoff season went up in smoke.

Once again unable to handle Carolina’s unremitting speed and opportunistic scoring touch, the Bruins fell behind by two goals in the first period and suffered a 5-2 loss that left them in an 0-2 deficit in their best-of-seven first-round series with the former Hartford Whalers.

The Bruins also didn’t have an answer for the Hurricanes’ chippiness and aggression, which included a heavy, shoulder-to-chin hit by Andrei Svechnikov on defenseman Hampus Lindholm late in the second period.

It left the Bruins with a huge hole on their backline, and Lindholm, believed to be concussed, will be out for a while, possibly the remainder of the postseason.

Fixing The Boston Bruins

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

The Bruins have some fixing to do, and in a hurry, after a 5-1 loss Monday night to the Hurricanes in their postseason First Night.

Once again, much to the frustration of the Bruins, the Canes were faster, more opportunistic, and much better at figuring out the basic objective of the sport: Generating ways to put the puck in the net.

Through four games this season, the Canes have outscored the Bruins, 21-2. No one has had the Bruins’ number this season like them....

So, the quick, short list of “fix its” prior to Game 2 here on Wednesday: Better action around the offensive net.

The list doesn’t end there, but it was clearly the No. 1 problem. The one they fix or go home.

A Look At Tommy McCarthy’s Life

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

...Sinden sent a pair of draft picks to the North Stars to acquire Tommy McCarthy, then age 25. Strong and energetic, McCarthy already had seven years of NHL experience (including a 39-goal season) with the North Stars. He lasted in Boston for little more than a season, connecting for 30 goals his first season on Causeway Street.

On Wednesday, McCarthy died of a heart-related aneurysm while in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He was 61.

Fun-loving, a bit goofy, it was virtually impossible to dislike McCarthy, as it is a tail-wagging Great Dane that turns a family room into a Hazmat site. He was full of smiles, good words, energy, moves, and talent. The spark in his personality stood out, even in the day when NHL dressing rooms were chock full of characters not afraid to go off team script, willing to repeat something other than clichés and team-screened party lines.

Post-Boston, there were some very difficult years for McCarthy, beginning not long after his NHL days came to an end after only seven games with the Black and Gold in 1987-88.

“It really started when I stopped dreaming,” he told CBC reporter Scott Morrison years later, reflecting on some of the poor choices he made.

At his lowest, McCarthy recalled, his mind-set became, “I had my chance, my life is over . . . ”
