BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins need their top line of David Krejci centering Milan Lucic and Jarome Iginla to produce if they want to not only beat the Montreal Canadiens in the upcoming Eastern Conference Second Round series but advance well into June.
Krejci, who was limited to two assists by the Detroit Red Wings in the Bruins' five-game victory in the first round, plans on being a difference-maker against the Canadiens when the best-of-7 series gets underway.
"They obviously got some little guys, so they like to play with the puck. They play fast and shifty. But I feel like, especially my line, I know we're going to be the line that's playing with the puck a lot," Krejci said after practice Tuesday at TD Garden. "So it's going to be up to them to stop us. We're going to be trying to make something happen and I'm going to try to have the puck on my stick all the time. That's going to be the difference between Detroit and this series."
