If the Bruins hope to prevent the Blackhawks from partying on Boston ice, here are their four keys for Game 6.
The hot and muggy conditions in Boston are wreaking havoc on the TD Garden once again, bringing back memories of a few other Stanley Cup Final games that were played in less-than-perfect conditions thanks to the temperature outside.
The Chicago Blackhawks headed for the East Coast, one win between them and the Stanley Cup title. The Boston Bruins, meanwhile, went home knowing they had to win the next game to avoid elimination, not to mention the bitter experience of watching someone else celebrate winning the Stanley Cup on their ice.
Jonathan Toews watched the end of the fifth game of the Stanley Cup Final from the Blackhawks bench, unable to play after a hit to his head.
One little line tweak. One subtle strategic adjustment. That might be all it takes in this tight Stanley Cup finals.
This series is many things, but the battle between Toews and Bergeron will come to the forefront from this point forward. No matter what this year’s numbers say, those two are hockey twins.
One week after Alain Vigneault emerged as the leading coaching candidate, the New York Rangers hired him on Friday to replace the fired John Tortorella. Vigneault agreed to a five-year contract.
When the Bruins shoot, they’re aiming for Corey Crawford’s glove side.
Joel Quenneville is not too stubborn for his own good.
The Bruins’ comeback effort was great, but it didn’t matter due to all of the team’s mistakes.
