Today the Bruins had practice to start preparing for Round One playoffs against the Washington Capitals. Besides Adam McQuaid, the rest of the lineup was on the ice practicing including Johnny Boychuk and Tuukka Rask. Rask was the first on the ice this am working with strength and conditioning coaches and goaltending coaches. Though not yet ready to suit up for a game, it’s great to see that Rask is in good spirits. Boychuk also worked with the strength and conditioning coaches and is looking like he will be making a return very soon. **Crosses fingers for Thursday!
Lines at practice were the following:
Lucic- Krejci- Peverley
Marchand- Bergeron- Seguin
Pouliot- Rolston- Kelly
The Bruins are eager and excited to get playing and they know that they have a tough opponent ahead.
“The excitement of being in the playoffs is a little different…[but] you can’t let the pressure crush you.” Adds: “Thrive on it.”^BISH”(Via NHLBruins)
