    GDT: ECF Game 2 Bruins at Penguins 6/3/13

    Per Fluto:

    PITTSBURGH – Good morning from the Consol Energy Center, where the Bruins will look to grab a 2-0 series lead tonight against the Penguins.

    No lineup changes are expected for the Bruins. Andrew Ference, who dressed in Game 1 for the first time since the opening round, looked comfortable on the second pairing with Johnny Boychuk.

    Pittsburgh might consider a goalie change. Tomas Vokoun was the victim of bad bounces in Game 1. But the first two goals were still stoppable.

    Puck drop: 8 p.m.

    TV/radio info: NBC Sports Network (Mike Emrick, Ed Olczyk, Pierre McGuire), 98.5 The Sports Hub (Dave Goucher, Bob Beers)

    Records: Bruins 1-0, Penguins 0-1

    Projected Penguins lineup:

    Chris Kunitz-Sidney Crosby-Pascal Dupuis
    Jarome Iginla-Evgeni Malkin-James Neal
    Matt Cooke-Brandon Sutter-Tyler Kennedy
    Brenden Morrow-Jussi Jokinen-Craig Adams

    Brooks Orpik-Paul Martin
    Mark Eaton-Kris Letang
    Douglas Murray-Matt Niskanen

    Tomas Vokoun
    Marc-Andre Fleury

    Healthy scratches: Deryk Engelland, Tanner Glass, Dustin Jeffrey, Beau Bennett, Robert Bortuzzo, Joe Vitale, Simon Despres

    Projected Bruins lineup:

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
    Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Jaromir Jagr
    Rich Peverley-Chris Kelly-Tyler Seguin
    Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
    Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
    Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid

    Tuukka Rask
    Anton Khudobin

    Healthy scratches: Matt Bartkowski, Dougie Hamilton, Aaron Johnson, Kaspars Daugavins, Carl Soderberg, Jay Pandolfo

    Storylines: This is the first time the Penguins lost Game 1 in this year’s postseason. They claimed the opening games against the Islanders and Ottawa. The Bruins have won all three opening games… Neither team scored on the power play in Game 1. The Bruins will have to be wary of post-PP shifts. The Penguins usually respond with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on the first shift after each kill… The Bruins are scheduled to return to Boston after tonight’s game… Wes McCauley and Dan O’Halloran will be the referees. Jean Morin and Jonny Murray will be the linesmen.

    I guess based on the other thread we should expect Jagr as a scratch and one of Soderberg or Daugvins in? Thank God we're past the Jay Pandolpho option.

    The Bruins made life easier in the second round when they took a 2-0 series lead over the Rangers. They would like a repeat of that scenario instead of splitting the first two games against Toronto. “It’s hard to win games in the playoffs,” coach Claude Julien said. “It gets harder as you move forward. Every time you get a chance, you’ve got to make the most of it. Don’t waste that opportunity by saying, ‘Oh, at least we won one out of two.’ You’ve got to go out there every game and want to win that game. Nothing guarantees you those home wins. Pittsburgh knows that.”

     

    The Bruins will not make any lineup changes. Jaromir Jagr did not participate in the morning skate, but the right wing sometimes forgoes the pregame twirl.

     

    Tonight’s expected lineup:

     

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
    Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Jaromir Jagr
    Rich Peverley-Chris Kelly-Tyler Seguin
    Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

     

    Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
    Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
    Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid

    Tuukka Rask
    Anton Khudobin"

     

    Gotta get that early lead again take the crowd out.

    So Jagr is in? I didn't really like him being scratched. He seems to be finding a rythym with his line mates of late.

    As Fluto mentioned he usually skips the morning skate. He and his too-long-of-a-stick will be fine.

    Vokoun or MAF ? Really doesn't matter which one. The Bruins have the abillity to make a goalie look really good or really bad. It's going to come down to containment of Pittsburgs stars. Tuukka is way more important in this series than anyone in the Pitts net.

    I never realized that could be a bad thing? When a guy carries a big stick....

    Hopefully the Penguins come out and try to over do it in the physical part like they did last game. That to me, isn't their game and they are more beatable when they try to be something they are not.

    B's won last game 3-0 in their building and I don't think they played one of their better games either. Tuuka got one for them and thats what good number one goalies are paid to do.

    I agree Kelv. I thought the Bruins could have put away a few more of their other opportunities.

    looking fwd to this.  I really hope no focus is on cooke.  When teams get him going the pens play better.  If there is a blowout go nuts.  But they need to continue to drive malkin, crosby letang bonkers.

    Not to downplay the importance of tonight's game but it's game 3 that I think is the 2nd most important to win in a series. Winning tonight would be gravy but winning Wednesday is crucial regardless of what happens tonight.

    Agree put Matt  Cooke out of their minds. Try to focus on a better start. Then try to keep testing Voukoun I'm still not sold on him, yes I know he's playing great and the numbers suggest that.
