General manager Peter Chiarelli says this year's success reinforces his decision to keep the team together. He says players know more about what to expect in the next round than they did in their last trip to the finals.
The Bruins could find out Saturday night who they'll be playing. The Chicago Blackhawks lead the Western Conference finals over the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 and need a win to advance.
I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
