Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid is already a veteran of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including winning a Stanley Cup title with the Bruins in 2011 and approaching 50 postseason games for his career before his 27th birthday.

This postseason, McQuaid, 26, has been a staple of Boston's third defensive pairing, providing a shut-down presence for Claude Julien. In the Eastern Conference Final, McQuaid scored the series-winning goal in a stunning four-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

McQuaid has been gracious enough to agree to keep a player blog that will appear on throughout the Stanley Cup Final.

In his second installment, he talks about his hometown of Cornwall, Prince Edward Island and his start in hockey.

McQuaid: Bruins will keep moving forward

CHICAGO -- It was a long night. Triple overtime, getting halfway through the third overtime there, we were almost close to playing two full games. It was definitely a hard-fought battle. In overtime, both teams are trying to keep things simple. Both teams had their chances at times and goalies made some big saves and guys made some big plays.

It obviously would have been nice if things went the other way. But, we'll stay positive, take the positives out of the game and keep moving forward.

Overtimes are tough to play in. You just want to do your best to stay hydrated. Some guys will try to get something in them, food of some sort, bananas, stuff like that, to run on. The main thing is to try to stay hydrated, though.

Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
