Bruins’ get timely goals from Hall
Hall had himself quite the series. He only scored two goals, but it was the timing of those goals and in one case, how he scored it. In Game 2 with the Bruins trailing 3-2 with just under three minutes left in regulation and looking at a 2-0 series deficit, Hall scored his first of two goals to force overtime. With a ton of bodies in front of Caps goalie Craig Anderson, Hall was able to stuff the puck into the net off a wild scramble to tie the game, which led to Brad Marchand’s game-winning goal 39 seconds into overtime to even the series 1-1.
In Game 3, Hall once again found the back of the net, but this time, with an incredible move on Capitals rookie goalie Ilya Samsonov. Fifty-six seconds after Alex Ovechkin gave the Caps a 1-0 lead, Hall took a pass from Craig Smith, made a move on Samsonov, and roofed his shot under the crossbar.
For the series, Hall also had an assist with his two goals and finished with 12 shots on the net. He averaged just over 18 minutes a game, but more importantly, turned the series in Boston’s favor with his two timely goals.
