“It was a good kill.”
Now that’s an understatement from Nick Bonino.
Up one goal midway through the third period on Thursday, the San Jose Sharks’ Timo Meier and Brent Burns were sent to the box. This would give the Philadelphia Flyers a two-man advantage for 1:56.
Automatic tied game, right?
Wrong: In a riveting sequence, a disadvantaged Logan Couture broke up two plays and blocked a shot, and Nick Bonino came up with a penalty-finishing dive and clear. In large part because of their work, the Flyers could only summon one point shot and a single one-timer on this two-man advantage, both from a distance. James Reimer would handle both bids.
Bonino, Bob Boughner, and James Reimer took San Jose Hockey Now through this crucial kill.
