The View from Boston - LA Kings Insider


Amalie Benjamin: Brad Marchand scores twice as Bruins defeat Kings

“Instead the Bruins rode a solid, heavy, physical 60 minutes on their way to beating the defending Stanley Cup champions who are, surprisingly, out of the playoff structure at the moment.”

Fluto Shinzawa: David Pastrnak putting his ice time to good use

“Even though Pastrnak played mostly against LA’s third and fourth lines, he didn’t do anything that drew nasty looks from his coach.”


Steve Conroy: Bruins pass physical

“Despite the physical and edgy play, at times, referees Kelly Sutherland and Marc Joannette were smart enough to stay out of this fight. Each team was granted a single power-play, neither of which was fruitful.”

Stephen Harris: Tuukka Rask talk tiring

“He was terrific last night, making a bundle of great saves against the physical, net-crashing Kings. It left him 10-1-4 in his last 15 games.”

Steve Conroy: Bruins Notebook: Kevan Miller plans to shoulder burden

“The one negative to come out of last night’s 3-1 win over the Kings was a possible injury to Loui Eriksson with 4:42 left to play.”


Joe Haggerty: Bruins outwork Kings, win 3-1 in blue collar battle

“It looked like the game might be headed to overtime, but instead Carl Soderberg fired a puck from the high point tipped by Chris Kelly that rocketed in and out of the net so quickly it was called “no goal” on the ice.”

Joe Haggerty: Brad Marchand nets a pair of goals in high energy contest

“He responded to a borderline hit that dumped him in the neutral zone by going into Honey Badger mode for the rest of the shift.”

Joe Haggerty: Julien: ‘Nice to see (Bruins) compete for 60 minutes’

” It was one of the first times this season the Bruins could truthfully say there was a playoff level of intensity to their game, and it arrived against a talented Kings bunch that were just as desperate for points at this time of the season.”
