Turn up the volume: A special win for the B’s
|11.08.09 at 12:35 am ET|
The Bruins finally broke through on the power play on Saturday and not coincidentally, so did Zdeno Chara.
Mark Recchi redirected a Derek Morris shot from the right point on Boston’s first power play of the night at 3:18 of the first period. That snapped an 0-for-20 on the power play.
Then, later in the same period, Zdeno Chara got off the snide. After scoring 17 goals in his first season in Boston and another 19 last year with the Bruins, Chara entered Saturday night still having yet to find the back of the net.
But that ended 13 minutes later when Chara’s blast from the high slot got past 21-year-old rookie Jhonas Enroth.
Between killing all seven Buffalo power plays and scoring on 2-of-3 man-advantage chances, the Bruins special teams shone on this night.
Afterward, the Bruins talked about getting the monkey off their backs.
