St. Louis Blues
The Bear Essentials breaks down the first round of the NHL playoffs.
While Wednesday night’s win over the Blues was a good start, it might be elite goaltending that the Bruins need in order to stop this skid for good.
Adam Proteau of The Hockey News spoke with Ryan Johnston and Mike Flynn, who were in for Toucher & Rich, about the approaching NHL trade deadline, the market leading into the deadline and the Bruins.
Brad Marchand scored twice and Tim Thomas stopped 30 shots to lead the Boston Bruins to a 4-2 win over St. Louis on Wednesday, ending the Blues’ team-record point streak at 21 home games.

Two would-be Bruins goals were overturned in regulation when replay showed they went off the posts; another two shots clanged off posts in the shootout as the B’s lost to the Blues.
