Goucher On Toucher & Rich: Not Really That Close Of A Game
The Bruins were down 1-0 heading into third period of Game 3 against the Rangers in New York. The Bruins dug deep and put the puck in the net twice to take the third game in the series and go up 3-0 in the series with a chance to eliminate the Rangers Thursday night.
98.5 The Sports Hub Bruins play-by-play announcer Dave Goucher joined Toucher & Rich to discuss the Game 3 win over the Rangers, the great play of the young defensemen, the play of Henrik Lundqvist and the health of Dennis Seidenberg.
“The only reason it was a game to me was that Lundqvist was as good as he was. I mean the first period it could have been 3-0 and the fact they [Bruins] were able to stay with it even though they were down one nothing after two and then come out and score two in the third period,” said Goucher of last night’s game.
“I didn’t think it was really that close of a game, I know they only won by a goal and I know they needed a goal late from Daniel Paille, but they were real good, real good last night.”
Rangers coach John Tortorella has been heavily criticized for the way he’s handled his team and many speculate that he’s lost his players. If the Bruins pull off the sweep on Thursday will Tortorella be out of a job?
The guys also discussed the injury to Dennis Seidenberg and whether there is any word on his status. If Seidenberg is ready to go which young defenseman gets scratched? With the way the youngsters have been playing it might be a harder decision than one might think.
