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.
