A still photo of Krug airborne brought back memories of Orr's famous flying, Stanley Cup-winning overtime goal in Game 4 against the Blues in 1970.Video: STL@BOS, Gm1: Krug lays huge check on ThomasIn Game 3, it was Krug doing something neither Orr nor any Bruins player ever did, scoring four points in a Stanley Cup Final game on a goal and three assists, all on the power play, in a 7-2 Bruins win that gave them a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.Krug became the fourth player in NHL history to score four points on the power play in a Cup Final game, joining Jean Beliveau of the Montreal Canadiens (Game 5, 1965), Denis Potvin of the New York Islanders (Game 3, 1980) and Joe Sakic of the Colorado Avalanche (Game 2, 1996).Game 4 is at Enterprise Center on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS)."He was great making plays happen even in our own zone, getting the puck out, skating and really seeing the forwards open and finding ways to get the puck to us," Bruins center Patrice Bergeron said. He's done a really good job of flying under the radar, and he still has the points on the power play."Perhaps Krug's performance in the Cup Final will signal a newfound national respect for the 5-foot-9, 28-year-old defenseman.Krug played in the Stanley Cup Final with the Bruins against the Chicago Blackhawks in 2013, but he had no points in the six games and the Bruins lost. Boston scored four goals on four shots, all created by Krug at the top of the zone."He's a guy who is very intelligent up top [on the power play]," Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo said. He does a great job." Krug reacts well to adjustments too, especially because of the way he can break down options on the power play with Cassidy, a former defenseman who played a similar role as Krug."The conversations are pretty fluid in that way because we're on the same page," Cassidy said.The conversations after Game 2 involved better ways to get the puck to the net through Bergeron and David Pastrnak.Video: BOS@STL, Gm3: Krug on setting B's record, Game 3 winKrug was playing closer to the half-wall in Games 1 and 2, but the Bruins weren't effective.
