The view from Boston - LA Kings Insider

The Boston Globe

Anton Khudobin pulls out the stops in Bruins’ win

“Marchand opened the night’s scoring, the Bruins connecting for the first goal for the fifth time in the six games since Cassidy took over the Boston bench. Marchand plucked the puck away from Jake Muzzin deep in the Boston end and bolted out for a 2-on-1 break with Patrice Bergeron, with only Kevin Gravel back for the Kings.”

Bruins remain on outside looking in at playoffs

“Their game reinvigorated under new coach Bruce Cassidy (5-1-0), the Bruins wrapped up their three-stop California tour with a 2-1 record, a vast improvement over their recent Golden State woes, which saw them go an anemic 1-8-0 over three years’ worth of stops in San Jose, Anaheim, and LA.”

Boston’s Anton Khudobin Shines In Net In 4-1 Victory Over Kings

“The Bruins ultimately led after 40 minutes, but the Kings dominated the second stanza. The Bruins were able to hold their advantage, though, thanks to strong efforts from the defense and Khudobin. Los Angeles had two power-play opportunities in the second frame, but Boston squandered both man advantages thanks to its aggressive penalty kill.”

Bruins blast Kings 4-1, continue strong start for Cassidy

“Boston’s unbeaten start under Cassidy ended one night earlier in Anaheim, but the Bruins responded with another strong defensive game in front of their backup goalie. Khudobin was solid in just his ninth start of the season for the Bruins, who have relied heavily on All-Star Tuukka Rask in net.”

Recap: Bruins knock off Kings

“Hearing Marchand took the team lead in scoring, Pastrnak said, “We’ll share it!” He gets his 26th of the season on the power play, snapping his stick on the one-time chance, creating a knuckle puck that floated through Budaj. 2-1 Bruins.”
