One move has changed the series around for the Boston Bruins

When it was announced that the Carolina Hurricanes were playing the Boston Bruins in round one of the playoffs, people were quick to jump on the Hurricanes bandwagon.

Despite starting goaltender Frederik Andersen being injured, the Hurricanes still had a very capable backup in Antti Raanta, who was stellar in game 1 stopping 35 of 36 shots to beat the Bruins. Then came game 2 where David Pastrnak ran into Raanta forcing him from the game and backup Pyotr Kochetkov had to come in and finish the game, which turned into another victory for the Hurricanes.

After falling behind in game 2 though, coach Cassidy decided to reunite the "perfection line" of Pastrnak, Marchand & Bergeron who have helped lead the Bruins back into the series. With the series now tied at 2 games a piece, the 'Perfection Line' has combined for 8 goals and 11 assists.

They were originally separated to try and spread out the scoring for a deeper lineup, but that proved to not be working and since being reunited this team has been on fire.


Heading back to Carolina for game 5, this best of 7 series has now turned into a best of 3.

Can the Bruins win the series on home ice for game 6?
