Bruins Make Necessary Adjustments Heading In To Game Two Saturday

Posted by Don Melrose on 6/15/2013 1:57:13 AM

The Boston Bruins threw everything they had at the Chicago Blackhawks in game one and came up short in a triple-overtime loss. Now they must find a way to make the necessary adjustments and bounce back in game two in hostile territory. Winning at Chicago was never something that was going to be easy for the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals, but it is something that will be necessary for Boston to have any chance to win it all. The Bruins did a lot of things right in game one and were commended by head coach Claude Julien for their effort. However, Julien also noted the little things that must be different, and that is where Boston will hope to make the adjustments Saturday night.

The Blackhawks will also have made adjustments after watching the film from game one, and they will benefit from having the advantage of the second change on home ice. The Madhouse on Madison was rocking in game one, and it should be even louder this time around after a gutsy triple-overtime sports betting win in the series opener.

The Bruins will need to tighten things up in front of Rask and not allow Chicago to get so much traffic to the net the way that they did in game one, when they fired 63 shots at Tuukka Rask. Rask did well to stop 59 of them, but the Blackhawks’ pace was relentless and Boston’s defense needs to do a better job of letting Rask see the pucks. Milan Lucic would have been the game one hero with a three-point effort had the Bruins held on, and he is going to need much more help in this game. David Krejci and Brad Marchand have been excellent throughout these playoffs, and Boston will desperately need more offense from that tandem.

Corey Crawford played a big role in limiting what the Bruins did offensively in game one, as he made 51 saves including several big stops in overtime that could have ended the game. The Blackhawks will need Crawford to play big again in game two as they try and weather the storm against a desperate Boston team, and they must remain responsible in their own end after losing track of Milan Lucic on both of his game-one goals. Chicago has the weapons up front to cause a lot of problems for the Bruins’ defense, and getting the puck deep and generating a strong fore check will be key as they look to keep the online sports betting action at the other end of the ice.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Boston isn’t the type of team to let two-goal leads slip away in the third period, and while that was exactly what happened in game one, they should be able to make the necessary adjustments to ensure it doesn’t happen again. The Bruins have the weapons up front to put Chicago under from the opening faceoff, and if they can get past Crawford early on they could end up evening the series with an absolutely necessary road win.
