Bruins prep for tonight's date with Devils Look for Tuukka Rask in net for Boston, following Anton Khudobin's debut Monday night. According to coach Claude Julien, none of his charges suffered an injury in the win at Raleigh, meaning all hands are on deck and available for duty against the ever-diligent Devils.
"They always play a heavy game," said Julien, referring to the Devils.
Chris Bourque has yet to collect a point in his five games with the Spoked-B, but Julien believes the Son of Seventy-Seven is getting better each and every game. Julien also thinks the play of Bourque's linemates, Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley, could be sharper, which could help Bourque get his production going.
I noticed Devils fans in their GDT mention "swarming them" in order to win. What is this in reference to?
Devils coach Pete DeBoer is behind the phrase "Swarm It Up" that is the team's playoff mantra and is printed on the back of players' new tee-shirts and sweat shirts.
"That's one of the things that comes out of our coach's mouth the most," goalie Martin Brodeur explained. "I think that's the way we play defense. Try to play well and outnumber people in the corners of the ice.
"He always uses that term, so we figured we're going to use that for our slogan in the playoffs."
Want Lucic to focus on the game & stop fighting bums
Clarkson is far from a bum, Looch vs a John Scott.....now there`s a tilt that is one in which win or not, Looch has no business getting in (not because I would be worried about him handling himself) when it involves a pilon like Scott.
I`m sniffin a Chara vs Scott beatdown<<<< not a fair trade off but would be worth it to watch
I'm still upset I didn't go to Prague. God, I hate myself for that.
yeah I'm still kicking myself for that. It may be a while until the NHL returns to europe or I am able to go to Boston sometime.

that's for sure! Prague is often overlooked I think by Americans making their Euro-trip (along with vienna and seville, but I disgress), but it's a majestic city. Great old buildings, small alleys, and home to the world's best beer
