Between Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, Nick Cotsonika of Yahoo! Sports joined The Adam Jones Show to review the triple overtime series opener and preview the upcoming second game.

Though losing in triple overtime is always tough, Cotsonika said the Bruins have plenty to feel good about heading into Game 2.

“They carried the play, really, when the game was even. … They really carried the play in the overtime. They had all kinds of chances to win that game,” Cotsonika said. “For everything we’ve talked about the Bruins having depth and grit, and Chicago having high-end skill, well I thought the Bruins’ top players outplayed Chicago’s top players. That top line was excellent. I don’t know whether Nathan Horton will play or how well he’ll play, but they’ll have to do that again. … If they do that, they’ll have a pretty good chance to win.”

Regarding goaltender Tuukka Rask’s comment that rookie Torey Krug made a “terrible” turnover, Cotsonika said there’s no reason to fault the goalie for being blunt.

“I just thought he was being honest,” Cotsonika said. “It was a terrible turnover. And I think Torey Krug would tell you it’s a terrible turnover. I’m not going to get on Tuukka for being a bad teammate for saying that — it was. It was a bad turnover no matter who did it.”

He also doesn’t expect any negative effects to linger into Game 2 for Krug.

“I thought that Krug came back and, after a short benching, played pretty well in the overtime,” Cotsonika said. “I don’t think it’s going to have any lasting effect.”

Cotsonika also discussed how injuries might affect Nathan Horton’s free agency, Jonathan Toews’ scoring woes and what to expect out of Corey Crawford.
