Backed up against a wall is such a cliche. But that's what the Bruins are after dropping the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals. Now they face the next two games in Ottawa needing to win 4 of the next 5 games. To make matters worse, the Senators show no signs of slowing down and their number one, Henrik Lundqvist is a big game tender who likes to win big games.
So what now? "We take it one game at a time, right now we need to win game 3" said GM Chris Ransom who meet with the media this morning after the Bruins day game skate. "It isn't over yet, we've played better games and need to show that".
For game 3 tonight coach Ken Hitchcock has made a couple of changes. Adam Cracknell and Carl Gunnarsson will sit in the press box with Michael Koska and Adam Burish making their 2014 playoff debuts. "This is the first adversity we've faced this post season so let's see how this team handles it, if your truly worthy of getting your name on the cup, tonight is the night to prove it".
When asked about his starting goaltender James Reimer who was shelled early in in game 2, he declined to tip his hand saying only "the starting goaltender will be a game time decision".
