The Bruins have eliminated a possible Game 7 from their minds. Instead, they have trained their tunnel vision on Game 6.
“It’s been pretty clear to the players that all the focus should be about tonight,” Claude Julien said. “If you want to create a Game 7, you have to focus on tonight’s game, not on Game 7. We’re going to be ready. I think our guys understand that. I don’t think we’re looking any further than tonight’s game. Let the rest of the stuff take care of itself.”
The Bruins are not expected to make any lineup changes. Rich Peverley will start on the first line, although Michael Ryder should skate some shifts with Milan Lucic and David Krejci.
* Nathan Horton stopped by the dressing room this morning to say hello to his teammates. Julien said Horton is expected to attend tonight’s game. Julien said Horton is still dealing with concussion symptoms.
* Even though the Stanley Cup will be present at TD Garden tonight, Alain Vigneault doesn’t plan to discuss the greatest trophy in sports. “We’re not going to talk about the Cup,” Vigneault said. “We’re going to talk about the process and what we need to bring on the ice. If we do that, usually the results take care of themselves.”
