Well deserved. That might be the best game I’ve seen from Nordstrom all season.

That was their killer game and we stole it. Gorgeous. Home ice back in hand.

Krejci line had no fewer than 3 dominant shifts after the goal to completely turn it around. And he won the last puck battle to clear the zone.

Looked like just Nordstrom out there, but not Acciari or Wagner. I know at one point I saw Nordstrom out with Krejci and Pastrnak.
Pretty sure DeBrusk is hurt and caught something his last shift. He grimaced and skated off. Prolly didn’t want to break up the 3rd like so put Nordstrom out with Krejci line.

A little bit of me died those last 3 minutes.

Nice win. Get game 5 and then wrap this shit up on the road.

Will take the win. Would have preferred to have it be not vs. Celtics/Red SoxMFY/NFL schedule release so could have watched more of it. 6 goals is impressive.

More importantly, HIA is back, with a light at the end of tunnel based on what happened in OH

100% the smart play by Coyle. He had no angle or clear lane to the net, so instead of flipping it into the middle of the ice to be picked off, he put it low.

They should do what they did tonight. Pastrnak with Krejci and DeBrusk and spot him with Bergeron and Marchand on O zone draws.

Rask was the difference outside the one fairly soft goal. Made some incredible saves and most importantly controlled the rebounds with TOR getting in front of him all game long. Hate the way we aren't trying to slow down TOR in the neutral zone. Have to do a better job on their transition game otherwise the D backs up, allows TOR to set up in the zone and then they dominate possession.

Need to be much, much better game 5. That was arguably their second worst game of the series just had a little more puck luck.

It was probably their worst game of the series. The superstars finished their chances tonight.

He definitely outplayed Anderson tonight. Going to need that going forward.

Hey did anyone mention that the first goal was Charlie McAvoy, out of BU, from Charlie Coyle, out of BU, and from Matt Grzelcyk, also out of BU?

Honestly though, McAvoy was a monster back there again tonight. Unfortunate high stick call at the end but overall another extremely strong game.

He said it relative to the Marchand no-angle that could hav popped it back out the other way.
I know but he had space to take it to the corner and create a battle on the wall for it which could’ve ate 10-15 seconds instead of just dumping possession right back to them. It wasn’t a stupid play by any means but he had the chance to burn time there.
