Sounds of the game… Bruins 7, Islanders 2

Posted By Mike Petraglia On November 28, 2008 @ 2:47 pm In General | No Comments

The big train known as the Boston Bruins [1] keeps on rolling. Following their ONLY regulation loss of the month in 12 tries on Wednesday night in Buffalo, the Bruins came out looking a little sluggish in the first period against the New York Islanders [2], falling behind 1-0. A true testament to their early season dominance is the following stat… It was just the sixth time in 23 games the Bruins have found themselves behind after 20 minutes. But that was not even a speed bump to the Black and Gold as they responded with five straight goals and put the game away with a five-goal onslaught of the overmatched Gordon’s Fisherman in the third. Scott Gordon [3], who coached the Baby B’s in Providence, was not shown any hospitality by the Bruins on the ice. Michael Ryder [4] netted two goals and seven Bruins had at least two points in the win. Next up, the Stanley Cup [5] Champion Detroit Red Wings [6] at the Garden on Saturday night. That’s can’t miss hockey for those wondering if the Bruins should be put in the same class as the the defending champs.

Michael Ryder was put on the line with David Krejci and Blake Wheeler and responded with two goals [7].

Ryder said the B’s were flat in the first [8].

Blake Wheeler on Manny Fernandez’s big save on Bill Guerin midway through the third [9].

Wheeler on facing the defending champs Saturday night [10].

Coach Claude Julien on the test Detroit provides Saturday [11].

Julien happy to see balanced scoring [12].

Manny Fernandez says the B’s will be out to prove something with Detroit coming to town [13].

Scott Gordon will try to forget this homecoming to Boston [14].
