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 NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final.

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

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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
