Hurricanes captain Justin Williams: Bruins served us 'poop sandwich' in Game 2

The Bruins dominated the Hurricanes in Sunday's Game 2, beating them 6-2 in a game that wasn't reflective of the final score to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Hurricanes captain Justin Williams had an interesting analogy after the game.

“We have to rediscover who we are. You spend all this time off and everyone’s writing articles how great you are. You come out and sometimes you have to eat a poop sandwich. It doesn’t taste good and you have to chew on it for a little bit,” he told reporters. “We’ll have to do it for a couple days and get the taste out of our mouth next game.”

Carolina was down 0-2 to the Capitals in its first playoff series before winning four out of the next five games to advance in seven games, but the first two games of that series went much different than these two.

The Bruins are looking good, as teams that take a 2-0 series have gone on to win the series 93.8 percent of the time since 1982.
