While the glow of Monday’s dramatic Game 7 is still fading, the Bruins have to adjust their focus now on the road ahead. It won’t be an easy one. The New York Rangers enter the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the B’s as one of the hottest teams in hockey and with one of the game’s best goalies. Henrik Lundqvist was great against the Capitals in the Rangers’ opening series, and there’s no reason to believe he’ll relent against Boston. On the other end of the ice, Tuukka Rask and Zdeno Chara have been the backbone of a strong Bruins defense that was sorely tested against Phil Kessel and the Maple Leafs. With the Boston defense dealing with some serious injury issues, Chara has stepped up in a big way — and the team will need him to do it again. NESN.com NHL writer Mike Cole stopped by the podcast on Tuesday to break down the magic of the Bruins’ magical Game 7 victory with NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette. The two also previewed the challenges waiting for the Bruins in the next ...

Brad Marchand throws water bottle on ice before overtime

Here's Crazy Jack Edwards' call of the Bruins Game 7 OT winner

When the Bruins defeated the Maple Leafs in overtime on Patrice Bergeron's goal, completing an epic Game 7 comeback in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, my first thought was this: I wonder if Jack Edwards survived.

Bruins-Leafs: Tyler Seguin Taking Excessive Criticism As Marchand Gets Pass For Team’s Struggles

    First off, I am a Tyler Seguin supporter or a “Seguinista” since he was number two overall in the 2010 NHL draft.  With that being said, I am not going to tell you his performance in the playoffs this season has not been a disappointment. It has. He has relied on one offensive move and is not burying his chances. It is maddening. However, he is battling his ass off for...

Humble Pie Taste SOOOOOOOOOO Good. BRUINS...WIN!??!

We still don't know what the hell happened. When the Bruins went down 4-1 we wanted to grab a box of kittens and punch each one in the face.
