Fresh Links: Act Like You've Been Here Before Edition

Big game tonight, Timmy. Big game. Please.
Big game tonight, Timmy. Big game. Please.

Basically, what the headline says. This is not groundbreaking new territory for the Bruins. It's a different team in some respects, yes; there's no Mark Recchi, no Michael Ryder. But in their stead, Brian Rolston and Benoit Pouliot have filled in nicely this series, to be sure.

Tonight, Tim Thomas needs to put on a show of epic proportions. Tonight, the first line of Milan Lucic, David Krejci, and Tyler Seguin need to STEAL that show. Doubly so because of Patrice Bergeron - the solid center is injured, and despite still being great with his usual two-way game on Sunday, it'd be awesome if his team could rally around him and prevent the need for him to try to bail the team out.

Seven and a half hours, people. Gird your loins, because it's about to get real.

After the jump, some stuff on the Devils, the Sharks, and the Canucks...and a neat profile on language in the Bruins' dressing room...
