Final: Hurricanes 3, Bruins 2

All done in Raleigh. Bruins pushed hard in third. Not so for first.

UPDATE: Claude Julien does not have an update on Adam McQuaid’s condition.

16:35 3d period: Hurricanes 3-2
Brad Marchand scores a six-on-five goal. One-timer from the right circle.

13:32 3d period: Hurricanes 3-1
Defensive-zone turnovers lead to scoring chance in slot. Jiri Tlusty buries it.

11:09 3d period: Hurricanes 2-1
Adam McQuaid to the room with trainer Don DelNegro. Didn’t take a shift after getting hurt.

8:16 3d period: Hurricanes 2-1
Adam McQuaid on bench. Very woozy after spill into boards.

4:07 3d period: Hurricanes 2-1
Tyler Seguin roofs a bad-angle shot high glove on Cam Ward. Heck of a shot. Very rare you see such goals scored on Ward. Seguin came way back on breakout to generate speed through NZ.


3:42 3d period: Hurricanes 2-0
Anthony Stewart slips a wrister on goal. Looked like Tim Brent got a piece of the puck. Bruins losing battles all around the boards prior to goal.

20:00 2d period: Hurricanes 1-0
Far too many marshmallows in Bruins’ game. Need more bite. Not emotionally engaged.

12:58 2d period: Hurricanes 1-0
Johnny Boychuk off for goalie interference. Bruins looking very detached.

11:05 2d period: Hurricanes 1-0
Hooking on Chad LaRose. Carolina doing its best to give the Bruins all the chances they want. Up to Bruins to take advantage.

0:42 2d period: Hurricanes 1-0
Joni Pitkanen shoots from right-side wall. Might have hit Eric Staal on way in. Dennis Seidenberg fails to clear Staal from in front of net. PPG.

0:00 2d period: 0-0
Bruins will have 48 seconds to kill on Chris Kelly’s hooking.

20:00 1st period: 0-0
Another bleah period by the Bruins. Need some kind of spark. Maybe a scrap?

18:48 1st period: 0-0
Massive pileup in front of Tim Thomas. Brad Marchand involved. Chris Kelly off for hooking.

12:34 1st period: 0-0
Johnny Boychuk flattens Eric Staal in neutral zone. Boychuk might be Bruins’ best at throwing such hits.

9:56 1st period: 0-0
Brad Marchand jousting with Jeff Skinner. Would be a very entertaining lightweight scrap.


9:00 1st period: 0-0
Very little pop on either power play. Failing to get clean entries.

3:54 1st period: 0-0
Looked like Milan Lucic hit left post. Lots of jam in front of net.

1:34 1st period: 0-0
First shift for third line. Benoit Pouliot starts on right side.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Matt Bartkowski is the healthy scratch.
