Preview:

It's status quo from game four against Pittsburgh for the Bruins. After a relatively long layoff, it's finally time to get things going again. FINALLY.

The Blackhawks are going with Pride of St. Charles, MO Brandon Bollig in the lineup tonight over noted Swede and UVM alum Viktor Stalberg. Bollig is actually also an alumni of St. Lawrence University, like Rich Peverley, so at least one SLU alum will get their name on the Cup this year. That's pretty cool.

The Hawks' lines are those from practice the last two days, but apparently Joel Quenneville has a propensity to switch things up on the fly, so stay tuned to the public skate for potential changes.

Puck drops at eight. Anyone in Boston up for watching the game at Cask and Flagon?
