<li> Will the Jekyll or Hyde Bruins take to the ice tonight? There is no more "wiggle room" to cover for inconsistency. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/boston/nhl/story/_/id/9268909/2013-nhl-playoffs-boston-bruins-lost-margin-error-toronto-maple-leafs">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Or is it going to be a game of "hide or meek?" [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2013/05/buckley_bruins_playing_hyde_meek">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Sigh. Even Bear Force One was not firing on all cylinders. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/boston/nhl/story/_/id/9268715/2013-nhl-playoffs-boston-bruins-stuck-toronto-plane-malfunction">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> One lucky break- Daniel Paille took a skate blade to the chin rather than the jugular. He's been a bright point in this playoff series. [<a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/blog/eye-on-hockey/22229517/video-daniel-paille-takes-skate-to-chin-doesnt-miss-shift">CBSSports</a>]</li>

<li> Listen to this Marek vs. Wyshynski podcast from May 9th, at the 23:55 mark, the topic of discussion is David Krejci's hat trick and the HuLK line. Their description of Krejci is that he's the vacuum behind a speeding bullet.
