2011 NHL Playoffs: What Must the Boston Bruins Do To Get Back in the Series?

The Boston Bruins have lost the first two games at home in their best of seven first round series with the Montreal Canadiens. They came into the playoffs as Northeast division champions finishing seven points ahead of the Montreal Canadiens. Their last game in the regular season versus Montreal saw them defeat the Canadiens 7-0 while chasing Carey Price from the nets after he gave up five goals on 33 shots. All that has proved meaningless in the first round of the playoffs.

The Bruins have given up the first two goals in each playoff game so far. They have been outscored in those two games 5-1 while outshooting Montreal 66-46. This series seems to be following the one Montreal put together last year with desperate defense, incredible goaltending, and timely scoring overcoming a dearth of deep talent on their side.

The Bruins while dominating huge stretches of play haven't managed to threaten in either of their two home games. Now they must go to Montreal and win game three in order to try to start to turn this series around. What they are doing isn't working. It is time to change things up before it's too late and they get upset like the Capitals and Penguins did last year.

This slideshow is a list of the things I think they should try.
