The Bruins open play in the round robin portion of the 2020 NHL Playoffs against a Flyers team that was one of the hottest in the league prior to the break. Tuukka Rask gets the start for Boston against Carter Hart for the Flyers.

First Period

The game got off to a very quick start with Philadelphia scoring just 2:16 after the opening faceoff. Sean Couturier played a give-and-go with Ivan Provorov before getting a wrist shot past Tuukka Rask. Boston answered right back just 1:03 later with Brad Marchand spinning past defender at his own blue line and taking it all the way, finishing with a wrist shot past Carter Hart.

Philadelphia regained the lead with 5:22 remaining in the first with Michael Raffl using his backside to redirect a Matt Niskanen shot from the point. Boston was once again able to bounce back as Joakim Nordstrom hit a one timer on a pass from Par Lindholm with 4:07 to play in the first.

Neither team would be able to create much else for the remainder of the period, sending the game into intermission tied at 2. Shots were even at 6 apiece in the period.

End of the period score: 2-2

Second Period

Boston came out flying to begin the second period with 3 consecutive shots in the first minute of play, but Hart was able to keep them all out of the goal. The Flyers had some chances soon after, but their shots went right at Rask.

Philadelphia eventually broke the tie again, this time on a slap shot from James van Riemsdyk as he received a pass from Tyler Pitlick at 9:18 of the second period. Another goal was scored quickly after the Flyers took the lead, but it was the Flyers extending their lead this time with van Riemsdyk getting in front of and around Sean Kuraly to send his wrist shot past Rask for his second goal in 37 seconds.

Pitlick and van Riemsdyk nearly scored again within a minute of the second from van Riemsdyk, but Rask saved both low shots as the rest of the period saw few chances for either team. Philadelphia outshot Boston 14-8 in the second period, making it 20-14 Flyers in shots through 2 periods of play.

End of the period score: 4-2 Philadelphia

Third Period

The third period saw a lot of big hits on both sides and some stellar goaltending from Rask and Hart. Boston was getting plenty of chances, but had many blocked by Flyers and some even by their own teammates.

With 50 second to go, Boston pulled Rask for an extra skater. As Patrice Bergeron carried the puck into the attacking zone, he found David Pastrnak entering the right circle and Pastrnak scored with 47.2 seconds left to give the Bruins some hope of scoring the tying goal.

With Boston pressuring and several chances miss, Matt Grzelcyk found Jeremy Lauzon open at the point for a perfect chance to tie the game with just over 5 seconds remaining, but Lauzon’s stick broke as he shot the puck, letting Pitlick carry the puck up ice and firing it into the empty net just after time had expired.

Philadelphia ended the third period outshooting Boston 7-5 for a total of 27-19 for the game. Rask made 23 saves in the loss, but kept the Bruins in the game.

Final Score: 4-3 Philadelphia

In my brand new video on my YouTube channel, I started a series where I simulate an upcoming Bruins game with my own commentary. What better way to start this series than to simulate the Bruins exhibition game against the Columbus Blue Jackets ahead of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Check it out below and please subscribe to my YouTube Channel and turn notifications on to be updated when a new video is published.

The Bruins head to Toronto in preparation for the 2020 NHL Playoffs. Following the extended break, the Bruins take on the Blue Jackets to get up to speed before the round robin for seeding begins. Tuukka Rask grabs the start for Boston while Joonas Korpisalo starts in net for Columbus.

First Period

Columbus got off the mark 3:17 into the period on a goal from Oliver Bjorkstrand in the slot with assists to Pierre-Luc Dubois and Gustav Nyquist. Shortly after the goal, Nick Ritchie and Nick Foligno went head-to-head in a fight that was even, but ended in Foligno knocking Ritchie to the ice. Both players received fighting majors.

Off of the faceoff following the fight, David Krejci won the draw back to Torey Krug, who fired a wrist shot past Korpisalo to tie the game at 1. The game remained that way until Zdeno Chara’s slap shot from the point hit the post, but the puck was passed from John Moore to Chara to Brad Marchand, who scored the go ahead goal with 3:11 remaining in the period.

Only a few more shots were taken in the final minutes of the period as it ended with Boston in front 2-1. Columbus outshot Boston 8-7 in the first.

End of the period score: 2-1 Boston

Second Period

Columbus came out flying to start the period and tied the game 1:19 into the period. Nyquist collected a centering feed from Bjorkstrand and slipped it past Rask.

That lead was short lived as Marchand got the puck in the left circle and found Patrice Bergeron in the slot for the shot and score to retake the lead 4:18 into the second period.

NHL 20 Game Capture

Columbus had several chances to score on Rask throughout the second period, including a sequence of 3 shots saved by Rask in quick succession shortly after Bergeron put Boston ahead.

Neither team could solve the goalies, so the game went into the third 3-2 in favor of the Bruins. Columbus outshot Boston 12-6 in the period, making it 20-13 Columbus through 2.

End of the period score: 3-2 Boston

Third Period

Anders Bjork provided Boston with some energy just after the midway point of the period, delivering 2 consecutive big hits David Savard and Cam Atkinson just inside Boston’s defensive zone.

Just as 2 minutes remaining passed, Marchand took advantage of a Columbus mistake at center ice to get a breakaway. Marchand took his shot too early, letting Korpisalo make an easy save. This ended up being a costly mistake as Foligno found Dubois to start up ice. Dubois found Zach Werenski in the slot for the shot that was saved by Rask, but Dubois followed up to score the tying goal with 53.3 seconds to play.

Both teams had great opportunities to win it late, but couldn’t beat the goalies, sending the game to overtime. Columbus outshot Boston 9-5 in the third, making it 29-18 overall in favor of Columbus.

End of Regulation Score: 3-3

Overtime

Overtime started with a controversial moment as Marchand got knocked down Dubois in front of Korpisalo, and then tripped Seth Jones as he started a break for Columbus. The referees did not call anything on Marchand on the play.

Following a faceoff in Boston’s own end, Torey Krug skated from the bottom of his defensive circle to the top of the attacking circle before finding a wide open Bergeron in the slot to rifle one past Korpisalo to give the Bruins the win 3:05 into the overtime period.

The Blue Jackets ended up outshooting Boston 30-19 . Rask made 27 saves in the win, including some key saves late in the game.

Final Score: 4-3 Boston

Hello, my name is Cameron Young and I recently joined the Black N Gold Hockey Podcast team as a YouTube content creator. I am going to be making different types of videos relating to the Bruins, like….

  • rankings
  • NHL 20 simulations
  • game previews/reviews

Once the puck drops again. I have already posted an awards prediction and Stanley Cup ranking video on my channel with more videos in the pipeline as well. I would appreciate it if people could subscribe to my channel as I am trying to help grow BNG Hockey Productions on YouTube with some discussion videos to go along with the podcasts and website content.

In my newest video, I start a brand new series where I take control of the Bruins in an NHL 20 Franchise Mode save and simulate the games to see how I can do in charge of the Bruins front office. This first episode has the set up for the save as well as the first 3 preseason games. Below are the timestamps for some of the key parts of the video:

  • Set-up: 1:10
  • Game 1: 6:30
  • Game 2: 10:49
  • Game 3: 12:12

As I continue to make more videos, my goal is to increase the quality of the content as well as introducing a variety of Bruins content. I am open to suggestions in the comment section to add more to my current list of ideas as well as ways to make the videos better.
