After a 3-year drought, Bruins return to the playoffs
Bruce Cassidy is coaching a playoff team, one that clinched its fate beyond Game No.
You go to work, try to get the team where it needs to be, do the things that you feel are necessary to continue to get better.
We worked hard all year to secure a spot.
Cassidy did what some coaches might not have done.
Cassidy paired Moore with Bergeron as his lead penalty-killing duo.
Moore played 3:10 of the five-minute kill.
He is aggressive with most of his moves: trying new pairs, changing lines, and doling out shifts to the players who are most deserving.
David Pastrnak gave the Bruins breathing room by burying a Nash feed at 16:06 of the second.
Now our D are able to get up and close their gaps and have the confidence that if they are a little bit off, the goaltender’s able to make the save.” The Bruins are in third place in the division with two games remaining.
I thought we played really well the last 20 or so games.
