BOSTON, MA – The Bruins are heading into New York with confidence, up 2-0 in a series that, last Monday night during Game Seven against the Maple Leafs, looked like it would never happen.
As the Black & Gold prepare for Game Three, they know they must keep the foot on the gas. They learned the hard way against Toronto in the first round, that not closing out a series as quickly as possible can be dangerous..
“It’s about realizing that the series is not over until it is, until you win a fourth game,” said B’s alternate captain Patrice Bergeron. “We know that; we know that tomorrow’s going to be a huge game. They’re going to try and bounce back and we’re expecting them to come out really hard. We need to make sure we match that.”
The Rangers fell behind, 2-0, in their first round series against the Washington Capitals and came back to win the series in seven games. As a result, the B’s expect a hungrier New York team on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
