Boston at Carolina - Game 6
Early on in the first period, Niclas Wallin was caught pinching in the Boston zone and the Bruins ended up with a two-on-one against Anton Babchuk. Patrice Bergeron carried the puck towards the Carolina net and fed a soft pass through Babcuk and to Mark Recchi, who tapped the puck in past Cam Ward.
The play was reviewed, but the goal stood, as Recchi's third marker of the playoffs 2:01 into the opening period gave Boston a very important 1-0 lead facing elimination in Carolina.
Michael Ryder passed the puck across the top of the circle to David Krejci, who sent a touch pass to Steve Montador on the left side.
With Byron Bitz screening Cam Ward, Montador sent a hard shot right past the Hurricanes' goalie to give the Bruins an early two-goal lead.
While Carolina failed to score on the power play, Scott Walker later started a cycle that got the 'Canes onto the board. Deep in the Boston end, Matt Cullen hip-checked Steve Montador and got the puck out to Chad Larose. With the Bruins' defensemen chasing Walker behind the net, Cullen slipped in front of the net all along. Walker quickly touched LaRose's pass out in front, where Cullen shot a backhander past Tim Thomas for the goal.
Looking to regain their two-goal lead, Savard and Dennis Wideman were battling for the puck in Carolina territory. Eventually Savard banged the puck along the boards to power forward Milan Lucic. Lucic grabbed the puck and skated his way past three Carolina players before making an unbelievable no-look pass to Savard. Savard one-timed the puck past Cam Ward to give the B's a 3-1 lead 8:53 into the second period.
Lucic continued his stellar play in the postseason by notching his sixth assist in his ninth game during the '09 playoffs.
The RBC Center fans were ready for the man advantage to pull the ‘Canes within one, but Tim Thomas and the Bruins came up with a big penalty kill. The Hurricanes piled on five shots during this critical power play, but Thomas denied them all to keep the Bruins up by a pair.
The failure to capitalize on the power play silenced the crowd for the time being, and seemed to diminish any hope that the Hurricanes had in getting back into this game.
FINAL SCORE: Bruins 4, Hurricanes 2
