Bruins 7, Blackhawks 4: Boston ends homestand with 6-0 record

Boston's David Krejci scores the first of his two power-play goals on J-F Berube during the first period Saturday afternoon

Jake DeBrusk set up two power-play goals by David Krejci.

To hear Jack Edwards' and Andy Brickley's breakdown of the power play and the Bruins' win, check out the "NESN Sports Today" video above, presented by People's United Bank. He had 8 power play saves, 1 shorthanded save and 24 even saves. Brad Marchand leads Boston with 29 goals, David Pastrnak has 40 assists and Patrice Bergeron has 198 shots on goal. The Blackhawks rank highly in power play opportunities (#2), shots per game (#3) and face-offs taken (#7). Sean Kuraly had one goal and one assist on four shots in 11:11 minutes.

"It's hard to go into the room and say 'We can't play that way; we've got no chance of winning'".

DeBrusk stick-handled around a pair of Blackhawks players before sending a pass over to Krejci, who one-timed a shot into the net.

This four-game winning streak greatly improved their odds of crossing that finish line with their heads held high. Nash tipped the feed past Berube for his 21st goal of the season. "I thought the power play moved it around pretty good tonight". Marchand has a history of being a dirty player. "We were trying to avoid each other so I don't think so". The last time that these two teams played was on January 1st, a game where the won.

"We'll see how he recovers tomorrow", Cassidy said Thursday.

Between the Devils' tough schedule and the Flyers' up-and-down pattern this season, the Blue Jackets might just be able to fight their way into the playoffs by surviving a battle of attrition.

Highmore broke a 3-3 tie by sending a wrist shot from the right circle that beat Rask inside the far post with 4:14 left in the second period.

West Virginia Meets Murray State in the NCAA Tournament
Last year, the Mountaineers were eliminated in the Sweet 16 in San Jose, California, by tournament runner-up Gonzaga, 61-58. The Mountaineers opened their season with a loss to Texas A&M, but then rattled off 11 straight wins in nonconference play.

Marchand, who got fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment in a prior game, isn't expecting a call.

Not only was this game their second in as many days (with travel) and with Anton Khudobin in net after a seven-goal outburst the day before, but this was an 11:30 a.m. local time start. With a whopping 231 shots on goal, Jones is firing the puck like never before; only Brent Burns has more SOG than Jones among National Hockey League defensemen.

While this hasn't been a great season overall for the backup, Joonas Korpisalo came through with two straight wins while "Bob" was sidelined. John Hayden made one goal on one shot in 12:22 minutes. They're likely to sit somewhere in the Atlantic Division's top three (and I think you could make the case that falling to No. 3 spot is nearly impossible given their point and ROW lead over the Maple Leafs), too.

Will Marchand have a hearing?

Duclair fell to the ice clutching his knee - eventually leaving the game with the help of his teammates. Cassidy said: "I just saw two guys turning that didn't want to bang into each other".

"I was coming up ice and I think he was coming down the forecheck and we both got caught in the train tracks", Marchand followed, "and we both didn't know which direction to go, but we just kind of tried to avoid each other".

Duclair, however, is expected to miss "a week or two", according to Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville.

The Bruins close their home-and-home with the Blackhawks tomorrow.
