Since dropping the first two playoff games at home to Montreal -- that first-round series seems like months ago, doesn't it? -- the Bruins are 7-1 at TD Garden this postseason. Included in that are two Game 7 victories, against the Canadiens and Lightning.
Faced with another 2-0 hole, but coming home for Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins are hoping their recent Garden touch will help them get back in the series. Milan Lucic is asking those Bruins fans coming to the next two games to do their part, at least vocally.
"We need it. We definitely need it," Lucic said. "We need to feed off their energy, we need to feed off their emotion. In both Game 7s that we've had here, we've been able to do that, so hopefully we can do that tomorrow night."
The Canucks are 5-3 on the road during the playoffs, but are giving up one more goal per game away from the Rogers Arena (24 goals allowed in eight games, compared to 24 goals in 12 home games).
