TNK BOSTON BRUINS FRANCHISE

Game #38 of Season
Washington Capitals (21-14-2) @ Boston Bruins (25-10-2)

1st Period - The game was being played wide open at a frantic pace in the early going with both teams generating plenty of chances and not much defense being played as Holtby and Halak were both forced to make a number of difficult saves. The game remained scoreless until Jake Debrusk got the Bruins on the board when he scored from a tough angle after Holtby stopped a shot from Grzelcyk and the puck found its way to Debrusk after a net front scramble giving Boston a 1-0 lead with 1:41 left in the period. The 1st period would come to an end with Boston leading 1-0 and holding a 16-11 edge in shots

2nd Period - The Capitals came out flying to begin the 2nd period and had a number of quality scoring chances in the first half of the period but Jaroslav Halak was fantastic in the Boston net and came up with some big saves to deny Ovechkin and Kuznetsov on point blank chances keeping it a 1-0 game. Washington would go to the PP when Carlo was called for hooking with 7:53 to play in the period and had some good looks on the man advantage but could not cash in and the Bruins would survive the PK and get back to even strength. Washington continued to control play late but Halak would keep it a 1-0 game with some tough saves and Holtby came up with a highlight reel save in the final minute of the period as he dove across the crease to deny Bergeron after a beautiful move and set up from Anders Bjork and the 2nd period would come to an end with the Bruins leading 1-0 despite the Capitals out-shooting Boston 15-6 in the period and 26-22 through 40 minutes.

3rd Period - The Bruins would enter the 3rd period leading by a score of 1-0 and looking to tighten up defensively in the 3rd period against the explosive attack of the Capitals. Washington came out buzzing to start the 3rd period as they look to try and tie the game up and spark a comeback but Boston would survive the initial surge to begin the period. The Bruins would settle down after the push by Washington in the opening minutes and the Bruins would find their defensive structure and start to control play as we approached the midway point of the 3rd period with the shots even at 29-29. The Bruins were protecting their 1-0 lead as the clock ticked under 10:00 to play in regulation and the Capitals were starting to show some desperation and take chances offensively. Holtby came up with a huge stop as Anders Bjork stole the puck from Kempny in the neutral zone and raced in alone on a breakaway but Holtby stretched his pad over to rob Bjork after a nice move to the backhand and the score remained 1-0 with 8:40 remaining. The Capitals would finally get on the board a couple minutes later when Hagelin raced up the wing and dropped the puck back to Djoos who fired a slap shot that Halak stopped but Lars Eller was crashing the net and fired the rebound past Halak for a big game tying goal for Washington to even the score at 1-1 with 6:39 remaining and set the stage for an exciting finish. Jack Studnicka was making his NHL debut for Boston and came close to being the hero with just over 3:00 to play when he made a move to shake his defender and get to the high slot and fired a rocket that beat Holtby but rang the off the post and the score remained tied 1-1. The Bruins would use their timeout with 0:36 left to play in regulation after Holtby froze the puck as Boston wanted to get the Bjork-Bergeron-Pastrnak line on the ice with an offensive zone faceoff coming up. The Bruins executed their plan to perfection as Patrice Bergeron won the ensuing faceoff back to Charlie McAvoy who made a quick move to get to the center of the ice along the blue line and beat Holtby with a low hard slap shot through a screen to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead with 0:31 remaining. The Capitals were unable to get Holtby off for the extra attacker in the closing seconds as Boston would possess the puck and dump it into the Washington end as time would expire and the Bruins come away with a thrilling 2-1 victory

* The Bruins and Capitals went toe to toe in a playoff like battle that was tied 1-1 with under 1:00 to play when Charlie McAvoy blew a slap shot past Holtby to give Boston a hard fought 2-1 victory

* The Bruins improve to 26-10-2 while the Capitals fall to 21-15-2

* Jaroslav Halak stopped 32 of 33 shots and was outstanding for Boston getting the start in place of Tuukka Rask and Halak was at his best in the 2nd period when he was under siege and made a number of huge saves prevent the Capitals from scoring and protect what was a 1-0 lead at the time

* Braden Holtby was equally impressive in the Washington net stopping 37 of 39 shots

* Charlie McAvoy scored the game winner with 0:31 remaining and now has 3 goals in the last 4 games to bring his total to 6 goals on the season

* Jake Derbusk scored his 11th goal of the season for Boston and has 9 goals in his last 14 games

* Jack Studnicka made his NHL debut for Boston and handled himself well playing a responsible 200 foot game and generated some chances offensively in a nice debut.

* The Bruins will get Brad Marchand back in the lineup after the Christmas break after missing the last few games with mild concussion symptoms.

* The Bruins will have a few days off for the Christmas break before traveling to Buffalo to begin a critical home and home series with the Sabres who have surged to 2nd place in the division with a record of 21-13-4 and are 8 points behind the Bruins in the Atlantic Division. Buffalo could pull within 4 points of Boston if they can pull off a pair of wins against the Bruins

TNK BOSTON BRUINS FRANCHISE

Game #39 of Season
Boston Bruins (26-10-2) @ Buffalo Sabres (21-13-4)

1st Period - The Bruins and Sabres were playing a pretty even 1st period through the opening 10 minutes with neither team tilting the ice. Buffalo would get the games first PP with just over 7:00 left in the period but were unable to score as the Boston PK unit came up with a big kill. The Sabres would open the scoring with 4:22 left in the period when Rask stopped a shot from Reinhart and Jack Eichel was there to bury the rebound giving Buffalo a 1-0 lead. The Bruins survived a lengthy 5 on 3 penalty kill at the end of the period after Debrusk and Carlo took penalties 24 seconds apart and the 1st period would end with the Sabres leading 1-0 and out-shooting the Bruins 12-7

2nd Period - The Bruins came out with some good energy to start the 2nd period after a sluggish and sloppy 1st period and had some early chances but Hutton was sharp in the Buffalo net and kept it a 1-0 game. Boston would catch a tough break when Brett Ritchie snapped his stick on a shot attempt which led to an odd man rush the other direction and Remi Elie would finish off a feed from Vesey to make it 2-0 with 11:47 to play in the period. The Bruins responded well to the Buffalo goal and strung together several strong shifts as they started to control the play but could not get the puck past Hutton and the score remained 2-0. Brett Ritchie was called for tripping with 0:54 left in the period to put Buffalo on another PP and the period would come to an end with Buffalo leading 2-0 and the shots were even at 21-21

3rd Period - The Bruins were going to need a big effort in the final 20 minutes as they entered the 3rd period trailing 2-0 with Buffalo on the PP as they had 1:06 of time remaining on the penalty to Ritchie. The Bruins would finish the PK and get back to even strength with 18:54 left to play. The Sabres went right back on the PP with 17:30 remaining when Carlo was called for tripping as Boston was getting frustrated with the officiating as the PP chances were now 6-0 in favor of Buffalo. The Bruins PK unit came up with another big kill and they would get back to even strength with 15:30 remaining. Boston began to dominate puck possession and generated some quality scoring chances as a result but the score remained 2-0 as the clock ticked under 10:00 to play. The Bruins continued to control play and increase the pressure as the game entered the final 5 minutes of regulation with Buffalo leading 2-0. The Sabres would put the nail in the coffin when Remi Elie scored his 2nd goal of the night on a one timer off a nice pass from Vesey to make it 3-0 with 3:57 left. The Bruins would ruin the shutout bid by Hutton when Charlie McAvoy scored with 0:07 remaining and the game would end with the Sabres earning a 3-1 victory over the Bruins

* The Bruins lose a tough one to the Sabres 3-1 in Buffalo on the front end of a home and home series between the teams

* The Bruins fall to 26-11-2 while the Sabres improve to 22-13-4 to pull within 6 points of the 1st place Bruins in the Atlantic Division standings

* Remi Elie scored two goals for Buffalo and now has 10 goals on the season

* Carter Hutton was excellent in net for Buffalo stopping 37 of 38 shots and was 7 seconds away from a shutout when McAvoy scored Boston's lone goal of the game

* Charlie McAvoy was the lone goal scorer for Boston picking up his 7th goal of the season and McAvoy now has 4 goals in his last 5 games

* Tuukka Rask allowed 3 goals on 28 shots in the losing effort

* Bruins D Matt Grzelcyk was banged up in the game and diagnosed with a mild concussion which will keep him out of the lineup for a couple weeks. Boston will call Urho Vaakanainen from Providence of the AHL to take Grzelcyk spot in the lineup

* The Bruins will get Danton Heinen back in the lineup for their next game after he missed the last two games with a sore neck

* The Bruins will be looking for redemption as the teams will travel to Boston where they will meet again at TD Garden in the second half of this home and home series. This will be a critical game for both teams as the Sabres could pull within 4 points of Boston with a victory

Re: TNK NHL 20 SLIDERS

TNK BOSTON BRUINS FRANCHISE

Game #40 of Season
Buffalo Sabres (22-13-4) @ Boston Bruins (26-11-2)

1st Period - The Bruins came out intent on setting the physical tone after the 3-1 loss to Buffalo in the previous game as Boston was throwing hits all over the ice in the early going and the game was scoreless after 10 minutes of play. Buffalo would lose Jimmy Vesey midway through the period as he was injured on a big open ice hit by Charlie McAvoy. The score remained tied 0-0 until late in the period when Krug transitioned the puck to Jake Debrusk who was flying through the neutral zone with speed and Debrusk snapped a shot on the rush that was stopped by Ullmark but Debrusk followed his shot and would collect his own rebound and score to give Boston a 1-0 lead with 3:04 to play in the 1st period. The Bruins were out-hitting the Sabres 11-3 as the 1st period came to an end with Boston leading 1-0 and the shots were even at 10-10

2nd Period - The Bruins would get the games first PP opportunity early in the period when Okposo went to the box for hooking and Boston had some good looks on the man advantage but Ullmark came up with some big saves to keep it a 1-0 game. The Bruins were dominating play in the 2nd period and had a 10-0 edge in shots midway through the period. Sean Kuraly was dinged up and left the game with an injury late in the period after blocking a shot. Boston continued to control the play and had lots of pressure but Ullmark was single handedly keeping the Sabres in the game as the 2nd period would end with the Bruins leading 1-0 and out-shooting Buffalo by a 31-16 margin

3rd Period - The Bruins would enter the 3rd period with a 1-0 lead and were dominating play through two periods and they will need to keep the same effort in the final 20 minutes as they can expect Buffalo to make a push in the 3rd period. Buffalo came out flying to begin the period and Sam Reinhart would battle his way out of the corner and snap a shot over the shoulder of Halak to tie the game 1-1 just 1:20 into the period and the teams will have 18:40 left in regulation to decide a winner. Boston would respond a few minutes later when Bergeron won an offensive zone faceoff back to McAvoy who slid the puck over and Zdeno Chara would tee up a bomb from the point that broke through Ullmark for Chara's first goal of the season to put Boston up 2-1 with 14:24 remaining. The Sabres had a couple solid shifts in response to the Chara goal as Buffalo tried to take back momentum but Halak made a couple tough saves on Eichel and Ristolainen to keep it a 2-1 game as we approached the midway mark of the period. Halak made his biggest save of the night with just under 8:00 to play when he stopped a breakaway opportunity by Sheary. The Bruins would get a big insurance goal when Urho Vaakanainen put a shot on net from the point that Ullmark kicked out and Chris Wagner would collect the rebound and make a beautiful blind pass across the slot to Patrice Bergeron who fired into the open net for a huge goal to push the Bruins lead to two goals at 3-1 with 4:17 remaining. The Bruins would add another goal when David Krejci swung around the net and found Jake Debrusk at the far post for his 2nd goal of the night to make it 4-1 with 2:34 left. Buffalo would not go away though as they answered right back when Marcus Johansson took a pass from Eichel and sniped the top corner to pull back within two goals making it 4-2 with 2:00 remaining. The Sabres would pull Ullmark with just over 1:00 to play for the extra attacker and Debrusk would register the hat trick as he buried an empty net goal for his 3rd tally of the game to finish off a big 5-2 win for the Bruins

* The Bruins bounce back with a crucial 5-2 win over the Sabres to earn a split of the home & home series with Buffalo

* The Bruins improve to 27-11-2 on the season and move back to 8 points ahead of the Sabres who fall to 22-14-4 and are tied with Toronto for 2nd place in the Atlantic Division behind 1st place Boston

* Jake Debrusk registered a hat trick as he scored 3 goals for Boston giving him 14 goals on the season. Debrusk has scored 12 goals in his last 16 games after a tough start to the season where he had scored just 2 goals in the Bruins first 24 games

* Patrice Bergeron had a 3 point night with 1 goal & 2 assists and leads the team with 37 points on the season (16 goals & 21 assists)

* Jaroslav Halak was solid for Boston stopping 26 of 28 shots as he got the start in net in place of Tuukka Rask

* Linus Ullmark got the start for Buffalo and saw a lot of rubber as Boston peppered him with 46 shots and Ullmark was the only reason Buffalo was in the game at the start of the 3rd period. Ullmark would finish with 42 saves in the losing effort

* Zdeno Chara scored his first goal of the season for Boston

* Sean Kuraly was injured blocking a shot in the 2nd period and did not return. Kuraly will miss a couple weeks with a broken nose. The Bruins will use a combination of Par Lindholm and Jack Studnicka in Kuraly's spot as the 4th line center while he is out of the lineup

* The Bruins will travel to New Jersey to close out 2019 with a New Years Eve matchup against the Devils at Prudential Center. The Devils are currently 18-18-2 on the season and in 5th place in the Metropolitan Division

* I'm going to do strictly box scores and game notes going forward. Although I sort of like doing these full game stories, it takes too much time. After 40 games played, the sliders are proven and the box scores with brief notes are all that is needed at this point

TNK BOSTON BRUINS FRANCHISE

Game #41 of Season
Boston Bruins (27-11-2) @ New Jersey Devils (18-18-2)

1st Period - The Bruins controlled play throughout the 1st period out-shooting the Devils 12-5 but there was no scoring and the teams went to the intermission with the score tied 0-0 after 20 minutes

2nd Period - The Bruins continued to control play in the 2nd period but Cory Schneider was on his game in the New Jersey net and the Devils took advantage of some bad defensive breakdowns by Boston as New Jersey got goals from Jack Hughes, Blake Coleman and Ben Street in the period to give the Devils a 3-0 lead despite being out-shot 27-17 after two periods

3rd Period - The Bruins entered the 3rd period trailing 3-0 and Charlie McaAvoy scored 42 seconds into the period to start the comeback and cut the New Jersey lead to 3-1. Boston pulled within a one goal midway through the period when Debrusk set up David Pastrnak who fired a rocket past Schneider to cut the deficit to 3-2 with 10:39 remaining. The Devils would take the momentum right back when Blake Coleman scored his 2nd goal of the game less than a minute later to push the New Jersey lead back to two goals at 4-2 and that would be the final score as the Devils defeat the Bruins 4-2

* The Bruins lose a tough one 4-2 to the Devils in New Jersey as Boston paid the price for a sloppy 2nd period and dug themselves a 3-0 hole before fighting back to cut the deficit to 3-2 in the 3rd period before the Devils put the game away

* The Bruins fall to 27-12-2 on the season while the Devils improve to 19-18-2 get above .500 on the season

* Blake Coleman scored his 9th & 10th goals of the season to lead the way for New Jersey offensively

* Cory Schneider was excellent for New Jersey stopping 39 of 41 shots in the win

* Tuukka Rask allowed 4 goals on 30 shots as the defense had some bad breakdowns that lead to 3 2nd period goals for the Devils

* Charlie McAvoy scored a goal and added an assist for Boston to stay hot as McAvoy has now scored 5 goals in his last 7 games to bring his total to 8 goals on the season

* The Bruins elected not to call up Urho Vaakanainen from Providence and instead brought up John Moore to make his season debut after a long recovery from off-season shoulder surgery kept him out of the lineup to begin the season. Moore had been rehabbing with Providence and was declared ready to go, so the Bruins turned to Moore with Matt Grzelcyk currently injured.

* The Bruins will return home to TD Garden for their next two games beginning with a matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets who are currently in 6th place in the Metropolitan Division with a 17-20-3 record.

Patches always change things a bit, but sliders are still playing fine

Glad you like the MLB sliders, hope you like these as well....I would say just stick with it and tweak as necessary to fit your style of play

TNK BOSTON BRUINS FRANCHISE

Game #42 of Season
Columbus Blue Jackets (17-20-3) @ Boston Bruins (27-12-2)

1st Period - Boston took an early 2-0 lead when John Moore fired a slap shot from the point that found the net as Korpisalo was screened on the play and David Pastrnak scored a couple minutes later finishing off a beautiful set up from Marchand and Bergeron. The Blue Jackets got a PP goal late in the period from Nick Foligno and the Bruins would head to the dressing room with a 2-1 lead at the end of the 1st period

[b]2nd Period /B] - Boston exploded for 3 unanswered goals in the middle stages of the period as Anders Bjork scored twice and Jake Debrusk scored his 15th goal of the season to open up a 5-1 lead for the Bruins. Columbus answered with a pair of late goals from Riley Nash and Cam Atkinson to get the Blue Jackets back in the game and cut the Bruins lead to 5-3. The Bruins lost Brandon Carlo to injury in the closing minutes of the period after he was drilled by Bjorkstrand in the corner and appeared to be holding his arm as he went down the tunnel leaving Boston with 5 D-men for the remainder of the game. The 2nd period would end with the Bruins leading 5-3 and holding a 27-19 edge in shots

3rd Period - The Bruins entered the 3rd period with a 5-3 lead and were going to need to play a smart and efficient game over the final 20 minutes as they're down to five D on the blue line for the remainder of this game. Columbus would get a big penalty kill early in the 3rd period and would make it a one goal game right after as Sonny Milano picked Clifton's pocket behind the Bruins net and tucked the puck behind Rask on a wraparound to make it a 5-4 with 14:41 to play setting the stage for what should be an exciting finish. The Blue Jackets had momentum and were pushing hard to score the equalizer generating a couple glorious chances but Rask came up with a couple of tremendous saves in succession to deny Dubois and Anderson keeping it a 5-4 game. The Bruins made the saves by Rask count as Marchand and Moore worked the cycle game down low to Patrice Bergeron who fought to the slot and showed great patience and held the puck long enough to get Korpisalo to commit to a fake and roofed a backhand for a huge goal to give Boston a 6-4 lead and a little breathing room with 9:20 remaining. Zdeno Chara would put an exclamation point on this one when he blasted a slap shot by Korpisalo with under 3:00 to play to make it 7-4 and that would be the final score as the Bruins win

* The Bruins win a wild back and forth game 7-4 over the Blue Jackets at TD Garden

* The Bruins improve to 28-12-2 with the win while the Blue Jackets record drops to 17-21-3

* John Moore had a big night for Boston in just his 2nd game of the season as he scored a goal and added 2 assists. The return of Moore to the Bruins blue line has come at just the right time as Boston is battling some injuries on the back end

* Anders Bjork scored two goals giving him 5 goals on the season

* Jake Debrusk scored his 15th goal of the season and has 13 goals in his last 18 games after scoring just 2 goals in the first 24 games of the season

* Patrice Bergeron scored a goal and assisted on another giving him a team leading 40 points (17 Goals & 23 Assists)

* The Bruins were dealt a huge blow on the blue line as Brandon Carlo left the game after a big hit from Oliver Bjorkstrand in the 2nd period. The Bruins got the bad news after the game that Carlo has a separated shoulder with an estimated return of April 4th meaning that he will likely miss the remainder of the regular season. The good news is that Carlo should return just in time for the playoffs.

* Steven Kampfer will step in to the lineup to replace Carlo for the next few games with Matt Grzelcyk still about a week away from returning from injury

* Tuukka Rask stopped 24 of 28 shots but made some big time saves with the game in the balance in the 3rd period to help secure the victory. Rask play has dipped a bit of late mostly because of some poor defense and he will get a night off in the Bruins next game as Halak will get the start against Edmonton

* The Bruins will remain at home for their next game as Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers come in to TD Garden for a showdown between division leading teams as Edmonton is currently in 1st place in the Pacific Division with a 23-17-3 record on the season
