Boston Bruins Rewarded For Ability To Turn Game vs. San Jose Sharks Into Grinder

Bruins grind out a road win over the Sharks

California has not been kind to the Boston Bruins, who had lost 5-2 and 4-2 to the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings respectively. Awaiting them on Saturday night was one of the league’s best teams in the San Jose Sharkswho came into the game riding high after a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

The biggest key on Saturday night for the Bruins to be able to play their game. They were able to control the action early on with their superior team speed and skill, dictating the tempo and turning it into more of a grind-out type of game, something which they do well when they are on top of their game.

Boston would eventually be rewarded for their efforts in the third period as Carl Soderberg scored his sixth goal of the season on a wrist shot that found its way past Antti Niemi. From there on out, the Bruins would hold firm and Tuukka Rask proved to be up to the task on this night as the team closed out their California swing on a winning note thanks to their ability to turn the game into a grinder.
