The Boston Bruins skated through the first round without any obstacles, so what suddenly has the Bruins facing a 3-1 series deficit in the second round?
Well, the forecast called for Hurricanes and that’s just what the Bruins find themselves in right now.
Needing to win three straight games in order to make it to the Eastern Conference finals, the Bruins must rely upon what got them into the playoffs.
Tough nose defense. Good Goaltending. Heady play.
There is a thought that in the playoffs you need one of two things to prevail. Timely plays. Hot goaltending. The Bruins have lacked both in the last three games when their opponent has capitalized on both. So can the Black and Gold turn it around in time to keep the season going?
Yes, if they play like they can.
Boston hosts Carolina at the TD Banknorth Garden on Sunday as Claude Julien and the B’s hope that a Game 5 turn around will swing the momentum back over to the Black and Gold.
