Friday Night Links as we prepare for Habs-Bruins Game Two

BOSTON, MA - APRIL 14: Brian Gionta #21 of the Montreal Canadiens is congratulated by teammate Tom Pyatt #94 after Gionta scored the second goal of the game against the Boston Bruins in Game One of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at TD Garden on April 14, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts.

So right off the bat, the Boston Bruins David Krejci, who was flustered by the Montreal Canadiens Tomas Plekanec in Game One, tried his best Joe Namath impression by practically guaranteeing a win in Game Two. Just one game David? Not bold enough say the Bruins will win the series though, is he?

The Canadiens did take the day off today, but some players and coach Jacques Martin were made available to the media.

The Bruins, in the meantime, held a brief but intense practice.
