Find an answer for Bryan Bickell: In each Stanley Cup playoff there is always one guy who comes out of nowhere to have a great playoff run and help his team win a Stanley Cup It’s usually a guy who is not known for his scoring ways, therefore making his offensive outburst a pleasant surprise.
In 2010 it was Dustin Byfuglien, 2011 Brad Marchand and in 2012 it was Justin Williams. The Bruins hope that Bryan Bickell’s name is not added to that list for 2013.
Bickell enters the final series of the playoffs with eight goals and five assists, including two game-winning-goals. Bickell had just nine goals in the lockout-shortened 48-game season, but the veteran forward has caught the Stanley Cup fever and has been a big part of the Blackhawks’ offense. Bickell is averaging just shy of 13 minutes a night, but is without a doubt making the most of his limited ice time. As an unrestricted free agent at seasons end, Bickell will look to put the stamp on what has been an already impressive postseason.
Things could get ugly for the Bruins if they continue to let Bickell light the lamp.
