Now that Chris Kelly has officially (will not be “official” till July 1) signed a deal keeping him in Boston for the next four seasons it’s time to honor the fourth greatest Bruin in Bruins history (Orr, Bourque, Neely) with the seven days of Chris Kelly.
Over the course of the next seven days Bruins Daily will be recapping some of the best moments in Chris Kelly’s Bruins career to date.
Today on day 5 we look at Chris Kelly’s first goal as a Boston Bruin.
After the trade that sent Chris Kelly to the Bruins, No. 23 struggled to find his game in Boston as a member of the Bruins.
In his 21st game as a Bruin, Kelly finally found the back of the net as he beat Henrik Lundqvist with a wicked wrister giving the Bruins a 3-0 lead.
The Bruins would blow the lead as the Rangers scored five unanswered goals en route to a 5-3 win in New York.
Kelly would score once again in the regular season finale against the New Jersey Devils before a very impressive postseason.
