Bruins' Marchand goads Hurricanes' Williams into costly penalty

As the Hurricanes turn the page to Game 3, they'll have to leave these two games in Boston behind them, and get back to what has worked so well for them leading up to the Eastern Conference Finals.

After the Hurricanes' 6-2 blowout loss to the Bruins in Game 2 on Sunday, Carolina captain Justin Williams didn't think whatever his team was cooking up tasted very good.

It's a decision that New York Islanders head coach Barry Trotz didn't make - but should have - after being down 2-0 to the Hurricanes in Round Two.

"He was outstanding those two games", Mrazek said of McElhinney. "He was definitely our most consistent player throughout the series". Get back at it, whenever.

The Carolina Hurricanes came into this series with plenty of momentum as they had a six-game win streak going and they had allowed just nine goals over that stretch.

The Hurricanes have to be the aggressors early in Game 3.

Teams that take a 2-0 lead in the conference final round have gone on to win the series 30 of 32 times since 1981-82, when the National Hockey League started using the conference format in the playoffs. "I know we talk about it a lot, and I know it would be easy if I just said, 'Here is who we're starting, ' but we're confident in any way we go. I don't think it fazes them, where we play", said Cassidy.

Wagner added a goal late in the proceedings after stealing a puck from Faulk at the offensive blue line and led the Bruins with seven shots on net and four hits in 14:09 of ice time.

The Boston Bruins didn't have close to their best game in a 5-2 Game 1 win over the Hurricanes Thursday and now they get their best defenseman, Charlie McAvoy back and they also had an extra day to rest and go over what went wrong in Game 1. The fans here are awesome, so just to, I guess, hear the crowd after was awesome.

Game 7 is Wednesday in San Jose.

Columbus hit posts at least four times.

You're not going from the No. 1 goalie to the backup. They were tight games.

Mrazek was handed the reigns for the playoffs, mostly because he won more games down the stretch and also because he had been a No. 1 goalie before.

The Bruins appeared to have a goal in the first period when Sean Kuraly put one in after an extended close-in attack on a power play, but it was overturned after a replay showed that Joakim Nordstrom had pushed Bobrovsky out of the crease.

"I do know they're really good there", Bruins center Sean Kuraly said.
