After a week of waiting and hype, the Eastern Conference Finals are nearly upon us.

Kevin Weekes of the NHL Network joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh & Zo on Friday to help preview the big series between the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins, which begins Saturday night in Pittsburgh.

Weekes gave his take on the long rest for both teams, the battle that will go down between the Bruins defense and Penguins offense, and his take on the rise of Torey Krug.

“This is an unbelievable story,” Weekes said of the Bruins’ rookie defenseman who exploded for four goals in five games against the NewYork Rangers. “You want to talk about cojones, this guy is not afraid to jump up in the play. He wants the puck on the stick and oh by the way it’s the playoffs and he’s not fazed. I think he’s really jump-started the Bruins with his ability to skate and pass the puck out of pressure, and still make plays in the offensive zone.”
