Wade Redden is congratulated by Shawn Thornton, Adam McQuaid, and Dan Paille - Jared Wickerham
The Boston Bruins brought it last night, holding the Toronto Maple Leafs to one early power play goal, responding with four unanswered ones and then dominating sizable stretches of the game. Shout out to Wade Redden for his goal and assist, magical David Krejci, and the productive defensive corps. Has anyone heard from Phil Kessel?
Jon Strauss had a bon mot on poor Brad's junk. [@WeberKing]
It was David Krejci who was wearing the team's army ranger jacket after the game as first star, with a goal and two assists. Nice Bruins patch on the right sleeve! [MassLive]
Per Claude Julien, the team didn't look at the scoreboard, rather they focused on their play. And there was another "long shift" by the Merlot line that set up Krejci's goal. There was a bit of nasty as well. [PatriotLedger]
Remember the "Long Shift?" That was against the Leafs, too. 5 on 5 posession for 2 minutes. [YouTube]
Julien acknowledged the drain of recent events on the team psyche, the playoffs were a chance to turn the page. Despite recent losses, he felt the team was trending the right way, and that the core was still strong. [BostonHerald]
The Bruins achieved a full 60 minutes and kept their feet on the pedal. [ProvidenceJournal]
All options are on the table as Randy Carlyle takes two days to reassess. [GlobeandMail]
The difference between the Bruins on their game and the Leafs off theirs may mean a four game series. [WEEI]
The switch appeared to be flipped last night, and experience trumped exuberance. [TorontoStar]
