What’s better than a Bruins-Habs “friendly” matchup?

The Bruins went through their pregame paces this morning, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, preparing for tonight’s game between the rivals.

Above are a few scenes from morning skate…

1) First off, Gregory Campbell firing pucks at the boards while waiting to jump into his faceoff rounds with Assistant Coach Doug Jarvis.

(During skate, I usually watch rushes, before roaming a bit to try and get photos. No. 11 may or may not have been [he was] nonchalantly firing the shots because I had the phone camera in the first row, literally pushed right up against the glass. Hey, it made for this great photo of the Merlot Liner.)

2 and 3) The Bell Centre has to be one of my favorite road arenas. The history in the rafters, the red seats that welcome us every time we arrive at the empty, quiet rink. And the atmosphere that fills the seats come game-time. Away from the Garden, this is one of the best.

4) Assistant Coach Doug Jarvis dropping pucks for faceoff practice with David Krejci and the Bruins’ centermen. There’s a reason that Boston has been a dominant team in faceoffs season after season. Patrice Bergeron always helps their statistics, but “Jarvy” (the ultimate NHL ironman in his playing days with Montreal) leads the charge.

5) Shawn Thornton heading out onto the ice for pregame stick (stick tap to our video producer who captured this great shot).

6) Center-ice stretch to wrap up skate. The Bruins seemed undecided as to who to force into the middle to lead the stretch, until sending Quebec native Jordan Caron in.

7) Big Zee making his warmup rounds.

8) Patrice Bergeron speaking with reporters pregame. It’s always two “media scrums” for Bergy in Montreal, with the first go-round in French, followed by a round of the often same questions in Engligh.

9) Same goes for Coach Julien. Montreal is often the largest media contingent we encounter on the road, with the bilingual scrums for both Julien and Bergeron.

It’s not about…obviously, we would like to put a puck in the net - but when you look at the standings and Boston is in first place, that’s all that matters.

Krejci, Bruins Give "Full 60" a New Meaning - Boston Bruins - Blog

BOSTON, MA - Thursday night may not have been the prototypical all-around game Boston was looking for against first place San Jose at TD Garden, but it was all about the finish.

With the clock winding down, and the game knotted at 1-1, David Krejci fought his way to the slot and tipped a point shot from Adam McQuaid through Antti Niemi with 0.8 seconds left in regulation, after a simple Milan Lucic dump in. 2-1 Bruins.

"We stuck with it. The last goal was a perfect example of not trying to be too cute. A few seconds left into the game, Looch chips it in to himself, get it back, point shot, a lot of traffic. So we just stuck with our system and got the job done."

- David Krejci

I’m just trying to take care of my own end and go from there. If I do that, scoring chances are going to happen. I’m going into every game with the mindset to play good defensively.
Bruins center David Krejci (in the locker room prior to Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final), who despite his defensive focus, leads the postseason with 23 points off nine goals and 14 assists

"Defense leads to offense" has been the mantra of the Bruins, and it’s still proving true throughout the playoffs…

We might not have the best players in the world…But we might have the best team in the world.

Krejci Nets Hat Trick, B's Earn Series Lead

TORONTO, ON - David Krejci has scored  57 points in 63 playoff games with the Bruins.

So, following his hat trick that included the overtime-winner that led his Black & Gold to a 4-3 win in Toronto and 3-1 series lead over the Leafs, the center was asked about his “clutch” ability in the postseason.

Krejci gave a smile and a shrug. “It happens,” said the soft-spoken Bruin, on his game-winner in extra time that gave him his second career hat trick - and his second postseason OT-winner.

And then, he casually deflected all of the praise to his teammates.
