It's a 3 game winning streak. At quick glance, counting overlapping games in a longer streak, they did it 36 times in the regular season and 2 more in the playoffs this year. It's not that big of a deal.

pregame updates per Bruce Cassidy: Sean Kuraly and Nick Ritchie skated this morning and are game-time decisions. If they're out, Anders Bjork and Jack Studnick will play with Charlie Coyle. Karson Kuhlman will sub in for Chris Wagner on the fourth line.

Score more goals than the other team, please.

Hopefully Ritchie will be replaced by Stud

I would prefer they bench Ritchie regardless, and go with Kuraly-Coyle-Studnicka if Kuraly can play. If not, let’s hope the speed of that line can give us an added dimension.

FWIW, the schedule of B2B games in Games 6&7 would favor, presumably, the team that is down 3-2 going into those two games especially if they are coming off a win.

Has to start tonight though.

Just win.

The refs would be watching Ritchie like a hawk, please let's not give them the opportunity.

Lightning in a bottle time, throw something new out there and see if it works.

Yes, I’d staple Ritchie to the bubble version of the 9th floor. If they insist on playing him I’d put him on the 4th line.

Hopefully Kuraly is healthy enough to play. But I’d go with Bjork-Coyle-Studnicka and Kuraly on the 4th (with an option to bump him up to the 3rd if Bjork doesn’t recapture the spark). I think Possession monster Coyle and the speed/creativity of Bjork and Studnicka could be effective.

Regardless of the lines the Bs will need to be faster on the breakouts and through the neutral zone. I don’t think the refs will let the Bs try and out-tough Tampa.

Win this one tonight and stay in the ring.

I’m on vacation and have been drinking since like 11:30. Tonight will not be the last Bruins game of the season.

I am still shocked Shattenkirk is doing the best(point-wise) in the NHL out of all of the '09 BU champs.

Colin Wilson: 113-173-286 in 632
Nick Bonino: 122-160-282 in 626
Kevin Shattenkirk: 83-300-383 in 679
Gilroy: (Hobey) 11-37-48 in 225

I don't know how the B's don't have at least 2 goals.

I also don't know how TB doesn't have 3, so there's that.
