    GDT: ECF Game 3 Penguins at Bruins 6/5/13

    By Fluto Shinzawa, Globe Staff

    Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins could put the Eastern Conference Final on lockdown tonight by grabbing a 3-0 series lead. The Bruins have claimed the first two games for the second straight round.

    No lineup changes are expected for the Bruins. The Bruins didn’t practice Tuesday upon their return from Pittsburgh.

    In contrast, lineup changes are in order for the Penguins. Marc-Andre Fleury should be in goal. Tomas Vokoun didn’t do much to earn a third straight start.

    Puck drop: 8 p.m.

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

    Records: Penguins 0-2, Bruins 2-0

    Projected Penguins lineup:

    Chris Kunitz-Sidney Crosby-Pascal Dupuis
    Jarome Iginla-Evgeni Malkin-James Neal
    Matt Cooke-Brandon Sutter-Brenden Morrow
    Tanner Glass-Joe Vitale-Craig Adams

    Brooks Orpik-Paul Martin
    Matt Niskanen-Kris Letang
    Douglas Murray-Deryk Engelland

    Marc-Andre Fleury
    Tomas Vokoun

    Healthy scratches: Mark Eaton, Tyler Kennedy, Jussi Jokinen, Dustin Jeffrey, Beau Bennett, Robert Bortuzzo, 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: The Bruins are 6 for 6 on the penalty kill. They have given Pittsburgh’s deadly power play nothing. The Bruins have been aggressive on the puck in all three zones … David Krejci and Nathan Horton have scored goals in the first two games. The Penguins have had no answer for the Bruins’ first line… None of Pittsburgh’s star players has logged a point. The only players on the scoresheet: Brandon Sutter, Matt Cooke, and Paul Martin … Marc Joannette and Dan O’Rourke will be the referees. Brian Murphy and Steve Barton will be the linesmen.

    I love it. Lets go B's.

    ...and thank you Pitt for keeping Tyler Kennedy in the pressbox. We'll take the NU kid any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    I'm nervous.  Big difference between a 2-1 series lead and a 3-0 series lead.

    I wonder if Iginla would pour Pittsburg water onto the garden ice....

    Come to think of it - I hope he does!

    I'm feeling pretty good about this one. Not saying the Bs will sweep the Pens though. But it would be nice.

    Keep the neutral zone clogged and the Boston will be fine. Curious to see if Bylsma implements a hybrid-trap to try n slow the Bruins down. If Tuukka stays locked in, which I expect, I don't see things changing for the Penguins.

    Jump on the pens early to to crush their fragile confidence. We need to get this game we don't want the pens back in this series. They must continue to pay attention to detail like they have been. Plus we need a fired up Tuukka like in practice when ST took a shot off  his collarbone and went crazy. A crazy Tuukka may be a good thing.

    Look at that, book is posting even while injured.

    And you got people commenting on onion threads and other junk around here.

    Get it together you people!

    Getting toward game time.

    Get your heads in the game, never mind the distractions.

    The vote on tonight's winner at my office is evenly split... but I may have biased some with my strong lobbying for Boston.

     

    GO BRUINS!

    Here's the BIG question: what was Doc talking about when he referenced nice weather 400 years ago?

    These are the things I ponder while waiting through commericials just to get to the anthem.....

    Iginla on the third line.  Morrow on the fourth.

    Nice trade acquisitions!

    If I'm a Penguins d-man I'm worried when Lucic is on the ice.  Payback is a comin' and Lucic will be a freight train .
