It Is Not Too Early To Ask, Can The Bruins Beat The Lightning In A Best Of 7 Series?

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Impressive win, 4-1, by the Bruins Thursday over Tampa Bay, though it needs to be noted once more that it was the third game in four nights for the Lightning, who also played the night before at Madison Square Garden. The runaway favorites for the Presidents’ Trophy (best regular-season record) began to peter out at the 10-minute mark of the first period and the Bruins gained momentum before finally scoring their three-goal knockout punch midway through the third.

Would it be different if they meet again in, say, Round 2 of the postseason? It’s hockey, so good luck figuring out puck bounces or final scores. But there’s no question the Bolts will be better rested and better prepared than the tired club that showed up on Causeway for its 65th game of the season.

Keep in mind, after dropping the opening game of Round 2 to the Bruins last spring, the Lightning ran the table with four straight wins. Sure, had the referees been sharper in Game 4, and called the Bolts for interfering with Charlie McAvoy, the series could have stood at 2-2 going back to Tampa. But there was little question, Tampa was the better team, particularly when judged on scoring depth, and the Bruins graded “N.I.” — needs improvement — for overall roster talent.

What would give Bruce Cassidy and crew cause to think it would be different in the 2019 postseason?

Steve Langdon’s Only NHL Point Came While Wearing Bobby Orr’s Hockey Pants

from Leo Roth of the Democrat & Chronicle,

During his five seasons with the Rochester Amerks, newest Hall of Famer Steve Langdon played 11 games in the NHL with the parent Boston Bruins

His NHL debut on April 3, 1975 against the Buffalo Sabres could not have been more memorable.

Called up that morning by Bruins coach Don Cherry, it took Langdon and trainer Nate Agnello four hours to make the hour-and-a-half trip to downtown Buffalo due to a major snowstorm.

o Langdon’s relief, the game was delayed and they beat the Bruins to the arena.

Needing gear in Bruins’ colors, Langdon got a helmet here, a pair of gloves there. He even was tossed a pair of spare pants to wear that belonged to none other than Bobby Orr.

With Boston short players, Cherry used Langdon with Andre Savard and Don Marcotte on a regular shift. They often found themselves paired against the French Connection, the Sabres' famed line of Gil Perreault, Rick Martin and Rene Robert.

“I played the whole game trying to cover Rick Martin,’’ Langdon said....

“I was behind the goal line, and Jim Schoenfeld rams me into boards,’’ Langdon said. “The puck was there, I kicked it behind the net to Don Marcotte, he tries to center it out, and it hits the goalie (Gerry Desjardins) on his pad or skate and goes in the net - from behind the goal line. That was a perfect assist I gave him.’’
