Is inside access now I don't read CS NNE dot com Bruins insider Joseph Hagerty Joseph when there's a lot of hype surrounding a couple of teams the actual game can be disappointing but. This looks like both teams really played well. Yeah that I think this might be a preview. Of the Eastern Conference finals way down the line just I think that's how good these two teams are and what you aside today it was too. Heavy blue collar gritty hard hitting physical hockey teams. Smashing into each other giving each other -- punch in the mouth and seeing how. The other one responded beside -- blocked shots saw a lot of hits on the ice evens up that hit there in overtime with the adversity -- you earned him suspensions. We saw a little bit everything elite goaltending it had at all -- what you Stuckey and it was two very evenly matched teams seems like almost every game. Between the Bruins in the Rangers over the last few years has been a one goal game and that's what we saw again today with the overtime. Flies. Yeah Andrew -- left early thanks to a five minute major for driving in New York ranger into the boards here's what the -- defenseman had to say about that. Yeah I'm -- -- W obviously you know that's you know you -- policy cause. Somebody injures my guts and so. You know five minutes -- -- -- doesn't help the team but it's but top that I just hope that you know you forgot about spot so. You know it's. You know it's it's a bad thing that kind of both -- Joseph you can hit added so what do you think does this actually made good defense over there and yeah I think it well and -- admitted all that saying is concerned about the injury after the game and he also talked about how the he was going into fast he felt some responsibility. For the bad results and called it that happened would -- done it without getting hurt. I think it's pretty clear game in the way too fast for the guys at his back to them was close the boards in a vulnerable position. I think you put all that together with the fact that interference heard from the league before last year during the playoffs and Jeff Halpern. They also did find that an intentional -- glove malfunction there during the playoffs as well so. He eventually got is a couple of times that maybe gets a gamer too -- it's going to be a huge suspension he's gonna get something that. Cards close to the Bruins -- actually came from defenseman and the Bruins show quickly they gotta love getting that kind of production from those guys. Yeah definitely they want for a long stretch of about nine games where they got no goals from defensemen little bit of a dry spell from them they weren't as involved in the offense. Decided to -- get a goal in the last game against New Jersey huge goal that game they scored two more today to start to crank up that production again. Really decide great all around effort from the Bruins today even though there.
