Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins swept the Philadelphia Flyers to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Toucher & Rich spoke with Shawn Thornton about reaching the Conference Finals, the long break and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Both the Bruins and Lightning swept the last round and will have had over a week with no game, is this time off a positive or negative?

The Bruins have also had two significant injuries to deal with. Will Adam McQuaid be ready to go for the start of this series? How does Patrice Bergeron feeling? With Bergeron out is Claude Julien still mixing lines or are they set?

They also discussed Tampa Bay’s style of play. Does it compare to Montreal’s style?
