11 a.m. ET: The Bruins have had a flare for the dramatics this week, and if they can do so with success again Sunday, they’ll end a pretty impressive week of hockey, and they’ll also head to New York with a pretty comfortable lead. The B’s host the Rangers on Sunday afternoon in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series, and Boston is looking to follow up on an exciting Game 1 win. Brad Marchand finally broke out by scoring a game-winning goal in overtime to give the Bruins the win and the series lead. Marchand played his best game of the playoffs in Game 1, and he did so in the second game of Claude Julien’s line experiment. Marchand was skating with Patrice Bergeron and Jaromir Jagr, while Tyler Seguin was on the third line; those were also the same lines the Bruins used in Game 7 of the first round against Toronto. The Marchand-Bergeron-Jagr combination looked solid all night, and unsurprisingly, that line was kept together at practice Saturday, so it’s likely that’s what the B’s go with again in Game 2. The Rangers, meanwhile, are looking to jump-start themselves after a somewhat lackluster Game 1. The power play has been a point of contention, and it got the Rangers nothing in Game 1 as well. That led Rangers coach John Tortorella to say the man-advantage unit “stinks” right now, which makes you believe there may be a change. We’ll get a better idea of that a little later when the Bruins and Rangers get underway in Game 2, with puck drop scheduled for 3 p.m. at TD Garden.
