Game 5 Boston @ Los Angeles

BOS 1-1-1-1=4 LAK 1-1-1-0=3

The next stop on the road trip was the Kings. The home team wasted no time in getting one by Moog as Kurri scored just over 2 minutes in. Defenseman Gord Murphy would tie it midway through the period for the B's and that's how the first 20 minutes ended.

In the 2nd Juneau put the Bruins up early, but an unassisted powerplay goal by Donnelly had the game tied at 2-2.

The final period saw another early goal as Robitaille put the home team up 3-2, with assists going to defensemen Coffey and Blake. Juneau's 2nd of the game with 3:55 left got Boston the equalizer, despite to being held to just 7 shots in that third period.

So we had our first OT game of the season. In bonus hockey it was all Boston. They outshot the Kings 5-0. And it was unlikely here defenseman David Shaw who blasted the puck past Stauber for the Boston win.

Shots BOS 13-11-7-5=36 LAK 12-7-10-0=29

Moog BOS 26 saves, 5 scoring chances, 3 GA. Stauber LAK 32 saves, 7 scoring chances, 4 GA.

Powerplays: BOS 1-4, LAK 1-5.

Boston 5-0

Game 4 Bruins @ San Jose

BOS 4-1-3=8 SJS 2-1-2=5

The Bruins started their west coast road trip with a game against the relatively new Sharks team.

After Oates put Boston up just 2 minutes in, former Bruin John Carter struck for back to back goals on back to back rolls for his new Sharks team. The Bruins though would put up 4 goals in that first period and take a 4-2 lead to first intermission.

Each team scored one in the 2nd as the visitors led 5-3. Just 3 seconds into the 3rd Ozolinsh scored to cut the Bruins lead to 4-3. He went on to have a 2 goal and 3 assist game for the Sharks. His 2nd came later in the final period, but by that time Heinze had scored a pair for Boston and the game was pretty much out of reach.

4th liner Banks scored the final goal of the game with 3:23 left to put the final Boston nail in the San Jose coffin.

A big game by Carter and Ozolinsh went for naught as San Jose left Hayward out to dry. Oates finished with a goal and 3 assists, Ruzicka, Murphy, Leach, and Juneau all had 2 helpers.

Shots BOS 17-13-12=42 SJS 12-7-11=30

Moog BOS 25 saves, 7 scoring chances, 5 GA. Hayward SJS 34 saves, 11 scoring chances, 8 GA.

Powerplays: BOS 1-1, SJS 1-5.

Boston 4-0-0

Game 3 Senators @ Boston

OTT 0-1-1=2 BOS 2-1-1=4

The expansion Ottawa Senators came into town, and despite getting outshot 49-17, kept it respectable, as goalie Moog seemed to struggle with in range shots again.

Steve Heinze had a hat trick for Boston who led the whole way. Juneau picked up 2 assists and Bourque another assist. Maciver and Hull had the Ottawa goals.

Shots OTT 4-7-6=17 BOS 20-15-14=49

Sidorkiewicz OTT 45 saves, 8 scoring chances, 4 GA. Moog BOS 15 saves, 3 scoring chances, 2 GA.

Powerplays: OTT 1-4, BOS 1-6.

Boston 3-0-0
