Blues vs. Bruins – NHL Game Summary – November 7, 2022

BOSTON — Patrice Bergeron scored a power-play goal with 7:15 left and the Boston Bruins beat the fall St. Louis Blues 3-1 Monday night.

Frederic Trent i Jake DeBrusk also scored for Boston, and Brad Marchand had two assists. Linus Ullmark finished with 25 saves as the Bruins improved to 7-0-0 at home and won for the eighth time in nine games overall.

“It wasn’t necessarily the best or the best, but it was one of those things where it was a game and we found a way to get through it,” DeBrusk said.

Brayden Schenn scored and Jordan Binnington he had 34 saves in the Blues’ seventh straight loss, all in order.

With the score tied 1-1 at the bottom of the third period, the captain of St. Louis Ryan O’Reilly he was called for tripping with 8:28 left to put the Bruins on the power play, and capitalized.

Binnington stopped two Marchand shots and managed to cover a rebound during an extended melee in front of the net. However, the Bruins won the faceoff and worked the puck to Bergeron in the slot for a layup that put Boston back in front with their fifth of the season.

“I think it’s always appropriate for Bergeron to go out,” Bruins coach Jim Montgomery said. “There are not enough words that I can say about what it means to the culture of the team and to the productivity of the team. He’s a player who gets the job done night after night.”

Frederic helped seal it with 3:32 left with his third.

The Blues had a couple of power play opportunities in the first eight minutes of the game, but were unable to capitalize, finishing with just five shots on goal in the period.

“We didn’t create enough momentum for the team in the first period. In the second period, we were better. I thought all night we worked, we competed,” Schenn said. “In the D zone, we ran around there in the third. They took it to us a little bit obviously and were able to capitalize and win the game.”

The Bruins led 1-0 after DeBrusk scored on a power play with 6:26 left in the first period, taking a Pastrnak backhand in the slot and sliding it between Binnington’s legs for his fifth.

Schenn drew for St. Louis within one with only 8:23 left in the second after a cross pass from Jordan Kyrou. It was his third. Former Bruins defenseman Torey Krug also assisted on the goal.

The Bruins scored on both power play opportunities and killed all three chances when the Blues had the lead.

“The effort is there. We introduced ourselves tonight. We competed a lot. That’s a good team over there,” Schenn said. “We just have to find a way to score goals and get the results we want.”

WE ARE SORRY

Earlier Monday, Bruins president Cam Neely said the club “dropped the ball” by signing Mitchell Miller without properly reviewing the decision to bring the 20-year-old defenseman on board despite a conviction for bullying a classmate developmentally disabled black in high school.

The Bruins drew widespread criticism before rescinding the offer Sunday night, then held a news conference Monday in which Neely apologized to the victim and his family.

“I’m extremely upset that we made a lot of people unhappy with our decision,” Neely said. “I’m proud of the Bruins organization and what we stand for. And we failed there.”

Blues LW Brandon Saad returned to the ice for the first time since an upper-body injury forced him to miss six straight games.

PRODUCTION
