Boston Bruins

The Bruins are off to a strong start in their series against the New York Islanders, grabbing a 1-0 series lead on the strength of a dominant night for the Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak line. And it came on a thrilling night for Boston, as the city lifted all COVID-19 restrictions for the first time in over a year on Saturday. Matt Dolloff and Ty Anderson are here to discuss it all in a special Bruins postgame edition of the SideLines podcast.

Among the topics covered: the energy and atmosphere in and around TD Garden as the Bruins played in front of a full crowd for the first time since early 2020; the top line’s sheer dominance, and whether the Islanders have an answer for it; the play of both goaltenders, Tuukka Rask and Ilya Sorokin; the injury to Craig Smith and the Bruins’ options at forward; and what to expect in Game 2 and for the rest of the series.
