The Bruins announced that the popular “Behind the B” series will continue in the playoffs and it comes as no surprise that the next episode will capture the team’s first round Stanley Cup Playoff series with the Detroit Red Wings.
You can catch it 7 p.m. Monday, May 5 on NESN or when it re-airs 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 6 on NESN Plus.
I’m already anticipating how Milan Lucic’s swipe at Danny DeKeyser’s groin is going to be portrayed. Maybe a glancing moment? Maybe an opportunity for dramatic adversity? He did, as you can assume, end the series as Enemy No. 1 of the Red Wings fan base.
Of course there are opportunities to look at highlights of the Bruins’ dramatic overtime victory in Game 4, Tuukka Rask’s shutout in Game 3, and so much more. But the cool part about this series as we’ve come to know it over 13 episodes is the slice of life behind the scenes.
How did the team react in the moments after the Red Wings series ended? What did Claude Julien and company say to Lucic when he was fined for his shot on Dekeyser? It’s almost can’t-miss television for this time of the year.
Expect an episode to recap each round of the playoffs with Worcester’s Denis Leary narrating the bunch.
