NHL Game 4’s: Home Squads Roar Back To Tie At Two Apiece

Jonathan Grant | May 9th, 2022

Sunday was a day to be a fan of the home team is not only the NBA but also the NHL. All four Stanley Cup Playoff games went to the hosts, and that means that just like in the NBA we are going to see a ton of series head to Game 5 all level. In Boston, the Bruins opened the day by getting even with the Carolina Hurricanes thanks to a 5-2 victory. Brad Marchand was brilliant, scoring twice and dishing out three assists as he played a hand in all five Boston goals as the Bruins came from behind twice to record an impressive win.

The St. Louis Blues won by the very same score as well as they pulled away late to take down the Minnesota Wild. David Perron scored twice and had an assist and Jordan Kyrou scored twice as well to knot that series up at two apiece. The defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning again got level by thrashing the Toronto Maple Leafs, this time doing so 7-3 as seven different players found the net in the scoring extravaganza. Victor Hedman and Brandon Hagel each had two assists to push them toward parity as a trip up north looms. And finally, the LA Kings are back where they started against the Edmonton Oilers following a 4-0 home ice win on Sunday evening. Jonathan Quick pitched a shutout with 31 saves while Trevor Moore scored a goal and laid out an assist in the first period to give them a quick lead early on. Carl Grundstrom then netted twice in the closing five minutes to put the game further out of reach as these series are now all guaranteed to go to at least six games.
