Bruins defenseman Meszaros in for Bartkowski

BOSTON – Boston Bruins defenseman Andrej Meszaros was inserted into the lineup in the place of Matt Bartkowski for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Meszaros was dressed for the first time since Game 2 of Boston’s first-round series against the Detroit Red Wings and started the game beside Johnny Boychuk.

Bartkowski played the past four games for the Bruins and was on the ice for 26:26 in Boston’s 4-3 double-overtime loss in Game 1. He was called for holding Dale Weise on a scoring chance in front of the Boston net at 4:10 of the second overtime and P.K. Subban scored the winning goal seven seconds later.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
