No Lindholm. No McAvoy. Huge win to make it a series.
Yeah obviously the guy above who said the B's are probably getting swept is an idiot
But they really showed me something today. Facing adversity without Lindholm + McAvoy and despite a good start by Carolina today, the B's were very resilient and for the first time in a long time, I thought they were actually physical and really bought it to some of the Hurricanes' toughest guys too.
Also, not to say Ullmark is bad and definitely not saying he's the reason they lost Games 1 + 2. But even during the regular season you felt like the B's played more engaged with Swayman in net than Ullmark, and Swayman has made some big saves in both of the last two games which seemed to give the team momentum. They should ride Swayman the rest of the series and hopefully McAvoy can come back soon.
At the very least, there'll be at least one more Bruins game at TD Garden this season
Carolina does have a bit of a choking factor too and they seemed rattled today especially that third period. There's definitely pressure on them now otherwise the B's could steal this series for real
