Coyle, Bruins Beat Sabres 5-2


Carlie Coyle



Everything is going right for Boston right now. They still currently own the fourth playoff spot in the East Division. The team has been firing on all cylinders ever since the trade deadline. We all know how well Taylor Hall has been playing ever since having David Krejci as his centerman. Did you think that would change tonight against a team like the Buffalo Sabres? Not a chance. This duo continues to impress against any opponent that comes their way. One player that has been on a major slump recently is Bruins forward Charlie Coyle.

Coyle has dropped his production this season significantly from last season. He has gone 28 games without scoring a goal heading into tonight’s game. That is a ridiculous stretch for a player of Coyle’s nature. He would be looking to end that drought tonight against a dumpster fire team in Buffalo. He found himself getting past two defenders and rips one top shelf for his sixth goal of the season. This is a huge confidence booster for Coyle as the Bruins continue to push for the playoffs.



David Krejci is on Fire

Is it a surprise we need to address this? David Krejci is absolutely tearing apart the competition ever since the NHL Trade Deadline. That is when the Bruins acquired Taylor Hall from Buffalo. Ever since Bruce Cassidy paired those two together, it has been mayhem for anyone that plays this team. This success continued tonight against the Buffalo Sabres, Taylor Hall’s former team from this season.

David Krejci continues to impress with his shooting and playmaking. Tonight, he gets a huge goal on the power-play at the buzzer of the first period. The goal gave Boston a 2-1 lead at the time. In the third period, after the goal from Charlie Coyle to make it 3-2, here comes the duo. Krejci makes two Sabres look ridiculous with a few moves. After that, he feeds a wide-open Taylor Hall for Hall’s fifth goal as a Bruin. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the rejuvenation of the season of David Krejci. What a performance.



Marchand With the Dagger

It wouldn’t be a Bruins recap without a highlight from Brad Marchand. Brad Marchand really needs to get some recognition for the Hart Trophy this year. He has not gone more than two games without a point all season long. That is miraculous. When the Sabres had a six-on-four power-play at the end of this game, Marchand comes up huge. He scores on the empty net to secure the win for the Bruins. This is recorded as another short-handed goal for Marchand. He leads the league in that category this season. This just adds a cherry on top to a game where we saw a Charlie Coyle goal as well. What a night to be a Bruins fan.
