Boston Bruins Battle Back To Even Their Series

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

First some grit, then some finesse, and the Bruins on Monday night muscled their way right back to front and center in their first-round series with the Capitals.

Taylor Hall brought grit, charging in from the right side to mash in the 3-3 equalizer late in the third period. Then Matt Grzelcyk and Brad Marchand worked their magic with Grzelcyk sending a perfect diagonal feed from above the left wing circle for Marchand to ram home with a one-timer. All of it set up by an alert play around the blue line by David Krejci, getting the puck over to Grzelcyk with the Capitals in disarray in their own end of the ice.

The 4-3 overtime win, only 39 clicks into the extra session, evened the best of seven series, 1-1, and now it’s back to Boston for Games 3 and 4.

“We had to play better,” said coach Bruce Cassidy. “Everyone came to play. A little bit of a tough start (in the first period), and we’ll have to address that, but we played better.”
