Bruins’ Mason Lohrei Scores Incredible Goal to Break Tie

Mason Lohrei scored his first postseason goal, breaking a tie in Game 1 of the second-round series against the Panthers, contributing to the Bruins’ lead and marking him as the first Louisiana-born player to score in the NHL playoffs.

Mason Lohrei, Bruins’ defenseman, really turned up the heat. In the second period of Game 1, he shattered the 1-1 deadlock with a scorcher. And boy, was it a game-changer against the Panthers.

Parker Wotherspoon wasn’t just watching. He set Lohrei up perfectly, passing the puck his way. Lohrei then unleashed a shot. Poor Sergei Bobrovsky, the Panthers’ goalie, didn’t stand a chance.

Now, Lohrei’s not just any player. Hailing from Baton Rouge, he was picked in the 2020 NHL Draft’s second round. This season marked his big league debut. Over 41 games, he netted four goals. But this one? It was special—his first in the postseason. And his first since that game on Feb. 29 against the Golden Knights.

Oh, and there’s more. Earlier in the playoffs, he made a bit of history. He became the first Louisiana-born player to notch a point in a postseason game. That assist in Game 4 against the Maple Leafs was something. Now, scoring a goal? He’s the first from his state to do that in the playoffs too.

Then, not too long after Lohrei’s moment, Brandon Carlo stepped up. Another defenseman for the Bruins. He widened the gap, making it 3-1 for Boston. That’s how they headed into the second intermission, leading the charge.
