News, notes and Quotes:

- Bruins powerplay in game 2. (0 / 6)
- Habs Powerplay in game 2. (1 / 6)
- Nylander continues is good work for the B's
- Kovalev, showed some good things in game 2, imagine what it would have been if he was on the first line since he was acquired...
- Raycroft played a great game and he's showing everyone around that his season is no luck.
- I feel like Souray and Ryder will step it up tonight.
- During the playoffs, around 50% of the goals were scored during the PP. A chance montreal is there to keep the stat down.
- ``The biggest thing is that we have guys coming back, so they don't have time to stop up and they don't have much of a choice,'' Boston defenseman Hal Gill said. ``They have to take it wide or dump it in.''
- ``That's in the past,'' said Theodore, the 2002 NHL MVP. ``I'm only thinking about the next game. ( !!!!!!!!! yeah baby !!!!!!)
