Turn up the volume: A ‘skate-off’ win for B’s

Posted By Mike Petraglia On January 1, 2010 @ 11:06 pm In General | 2 Comments

It was like a huge holiday feast: almost too much to digest.

From the pageantry of the pregame ceremony to the singing of Sweet Caroline with eight minutes remaining to the game-tying goal by Mark Recchi [1] on the power play to the game winner by Marco Sturm [2] on a great feed from Patrice Bergeron [3], the 2-1 overtime win over the Flyers at Fenway Park [4] gave Bruins fans something they will remember for the rest of their lives.

And when Sturm scored, the Bruins felt the exact thrill the Red Sox [5] do when they win a game on a dramatic walk-off homer.

Afterward, the key players spoke about their emotions and what it was like to play in the first-ever Fenway Park hockey game.

Claude Julien gave it to his team in between the second and third periods, with his team losing 1-0 [6].

Julien said his team showed the kind of character on Friday they have showed all season [7].

Julien said it was great to give the fans a treat [8].

Julien on the comparisons between this game and Game 6 of the Canadiens series in 2008 [9].

Marco Sturm talked about his game-winner [10].

Mark Recchi, who scored the game-tying goal, spoke about the importance of the win [11].

Patrice Bergeron talked about a skate-off win at Fenway [12].
