Series Closing in on the Boston Bruins
At the beginning of the season, the Boston Bruins had a team goal of making it to the playoffs, and they did just that.

The adrenaline was building for the players, fans, and the whole Bruins Organization. Now getting any spot in the playoffs is going to be tough, and you don’t normally get a chance to take a night off.

For the Bruins, it would be déjà vu as they would go back in time to 2004 and face a bitter rival, the Montreal Canadiens.

In 2004, the Bruins were the ones with 3-1 series lead, but this time the Canadiens would take victories in games one, three, and four. Boston would take game two. This matchup has really brought back the rivalry between the two teams.

Going into game five Thursday night, the Bruins are going to have to do something that they were not able to do during the regular season in Montreal, and that is win.

If you look at the way the Bruins have been playing, the defense has improved by taking away passing lanes and blocking shots.

The one thing that the Bruins need to do is shoot the puck when they have the chance and not pass it off. This has been the section of the Bruins' game that is lacking and not hard to solve.

If they can shoot the puck more and get in front of Price, they have more opportunities to put pucks in the net and win Thursday night.
