The Bruins face the Canadiens at the Centre Bell tomorrow night.

  • Isn't that special? The Bruins' power play that had so recently impressed has gone cold. [WorcesterTelegram&Gazette]
  • Claude Julien was assessed a (strategic?) bench minor penalty, and Shawn Thornton dodged a bullet. Torey Krug was not about to stand by and let anyone take liberties with his teammates. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • On Saturday, Andrej Meszaros was okay in place of Matt Bartkowski, who acknowledged his struggles on Thursday in Game 1. Adam McQuaid is out for the season after ankle surgery and Chris Kelly remains out. Dougie Hamilton has reached a career milestone. [BostonHerald]
  • Meszaros had been out the previous four games, and focused on the basics. He would like to take back the roughing penalty that helped allow the Thomas Vanek tie-breaking goal. [TheBostonGlobe]
  • Good Brad Marchand battled with bad brat Marchand at times on Saturday. At least the outcome was good for the Bruins at the end of the day. [ProvidenceJournal]
  • The third period, which tends to be the Bruins' best, was the Canadiens' achilles heel. Two goal leads have been near impossible to defend this postseason. [TheGlobeAndMail]
  • Thanks, P.K. Subban, for your measured response and gracious words. I'll continue to dislike you for the right reasons, for merely being a Hab. [NationalPost]
  • The city of Montréal is battening down the hatches in preparation for hooliganism. [FoxSports]
  • Who let the dogs out? After tweeting about their loss, neighbors found Carey Price 's dogs and returned them safely to him. [MontrealGazette]
  • Narrative! Everyone said penalties would be the key to the Bruins / Canadiens series, RIGHT? And Shawn Thornton is now magical. [PuckDaddy]
  • The Providence Bruins eliminated the Springfield Falcons in an upset, and now advance to play Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the conference semi-finals. [ProvidenceJournal]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Team Finland demonstrates the worst line change EVER, in their game against against Team Czech Republic. [TheHockeyNews]
  • Sidney Crosby, Ryan Getzlaf, and Claude Giroux are the finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award. [TSN]
  • Here's a quick how-de-do intro to all of the the NHL owners. [BuffaloNews]
