Series Recap

Bruins lead Series 2-0






Notes:

- If the Bruins can split these two games in Philly and come back to Boston with a 3-1 series lead, they would be in great shape. A sweep would be nice, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

- Mark Stuart and Simon Gagne would both like to get back on the ice before the end of this series. The earliest we could see Stuart is Game 4, while Gagne could be back for Game 5.

- James Murphy of NESN.com is reporting that Marc Savard has denied Joe Haggerty's report that Mike Richards threaten him during Game 2.

- Tuukka Rask, Johnny Boychuk, Zdeno Chara, Matt Hunwick, Dennis Wideman, Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi were all given the day off from practice on Tuesday by Claude Julien.

- Calling it now: Shawn Thornton drops the gloves tonight with Daniel Carcillo.

- Tonight's game airs on Versus.

- Public Skate open thread starts right here at 6:30.
