Boston sports host hangs up on reporter for his Southern accent

The third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs got underway on Thursday night in Boston, with the Bruins and Hurricanes opening up their Eastern Conference Final series. The Bruins scored their second power play goal in 28 seconds when Jake DeBrusk found Brad Marchand with a cross-ice feed and Marchand set up Patrice Bergeron for the 3-2 lead. Mark the breadth of a second period that was completely owned by Carolina and could have resulted in a much bigger advantage if not for the ongoing stinginess of Rask, who made 29 saves and turned himself into a brick wall one more time this postseason. Backes got the third on a rush about 2 1/2 minutes later. You need to relish the plateaus along the way. It's frustrating for a game where I really thought - I wasn't planning on sitting here talking to you guys about this.

Bobrovsky also has to be on his game to keep it a scoreless game early in the second as the Bruins earned a 2-on-0 while shorthanded, but Nordstrom telegraphed his pass to Kuraly and the goalie slid to his right to make the stop. Appreciate how that ongoing brilliance in net was never more needed than across another listless second period for the Bruins, and how it kept them in the game long enough for a third-period, four-goal explosion they won't soon forget.

"It was tight until the end", Krejci said. We gotta weather the storm.","said Bruce Cassidy."We're not interested in weathering the storm, we want to create the storm". Boston F Noel Acciari was a scratch for the second time in the series. The Hurricanes-Bruins Eastern Conference Final is shaping up reminiscent of that exhausting first round against the.

The Hurricanes, on the same day, went and claimed Curtis McElhinney off of waivers to replace Darling while being out injured.

European backers of the deal have been trying to salvage the agreement, but Tehran has complained that the process was too slow. He was referring to the hardest-hitting parts of USA sanctions against Iran following America's pull-out from the JCPOA.

"I'm happy for David", said Cassidy."It's an adjustment...he was a captain in the National Hockey League...now you've turned into a secondary player". Any team who's playing at this point is a great team and brings a great challenge. We're super happy that we're in the position. "(I was) just trying to jumpstart the team, and hopefully they keep it rolling out there".

NOTES: The franchises met in the playoffs for the fifth time, with two of those coming before the Hartford Whalers moved to Raleigh in 1997.

The Bruins won three of the previous series, but Carolina won the most recent meeting in the 2009 conference semifinals when Scott Walker scored in overtime in Game 7.
