Preview:

It's opportunity #2 for the Bruins to close out the series. Many of us predicted Bruins in 6. Will we be right?

The Bruins did a lot of the right things against Toronto on Friday night. They successfully neutralized the JVR-Bozak-Kessel line; they didn't allow Grabovski to get any chances. After going down 2-0, though, they turned on the offense too little too late. It's going to take a full 60 minute all-around effort to beat these guys, and it'd be better to do it in six and get a little rest than to do it in seven and have to launch right into the second round.

Andrew Ference is out today with an undisclosed injury. Wade Redden should be back in for him. Providence should probably bank on not getting Matt Bartkowski back for a little while.
