Game 2 – Bruins (2-0-0) vs. Kings (1-1-1)
Saturday’s game is another where Boston comes in as a cautious positive. It’s entirely possible they come out with a very tight victory here, but it’s also possible they come out with a loss at the same time.
Last season when the Kings came to town, the Bruins took the loss in overtime and that was with Pheonix Copley in net. Los Angeles now has a choice to make: do they go with the goalie that won the game last year or the more experienced goalie in Cam Talbot?
So far it’s Trevor Moore leading the way with four points (3 g, 1 a). Anze Kopitar is right up there as well, with four points as well, but has two goals and two assists.
Talbot has played more this season, and has the experience with facing Boston in his time with the Ottawa Senators, and Philadelphia Flyers.
Prediction: Kings 3, Bruins 2 (SO)
