Sounds of the game… Bruins 5, Leafs 2

Posted By Mike Petraglia On November 6, 2008 @ 11:11 pm In General | No Comments

It might be time to start asking just who is Blake Wheeler [1].

He changed his uniform number before the game from 42 to 26. He scored his first career hat trick as the Bruins beat the Maple Leafs [2], 5-2, Thursday night at TD Banknorth Garden [3].

Wheeler is now tied with Toronto’€™s Mikhail Grabovski for the NHL [4] rookie goal lead with 6. ‘€¦ Dennis Wideman [5] won $100 for scoring the goal on Andrew Ference [6]‘€™s 100th career assist. Ference said before the game he would offer the reward to the lucky goal-scorer. Thursday marked Zdeno Chara [7]‘€™s 700th career game.

Now for the stars of the game.

Tim Thomas said the 5-on-3 penalty kill in the third period was the key to the game since Boston led only, 3-1 [11].
