Sitting here wishing it were Thursday night -- momentum is such a touchy thing and the Bruins seem to have it in hand right now.
BTW: Associate Coach Marc Habscheid took the "podium" for the daily update from the coaches today.
One writer greeted him with a question, tongue firmly in cheek, and asked "Who are you and what have you done with Dave Lewis?"
That loosened up the mood considerably, and he answered, "He’s hidden, we’ve locked him away."
Moving on, Coach Habscheid said that the wins in Toronto were very important to the team for various reasons.
"Anytime you can win that’s the greatest team builder of all," he said. "Especially winning in a place like Toronto -- they’re a very good team, they’ve been on a roll and the hype up there was something.
"They lost the first one and you could tell their [intensity had] increased for the second game.
"And we were able to come through that, so obviously that builds our confidence and builds our cohesion as well," said Habscheid.Other voices
"Two games over .500 [and] we need to keep pounding it out in the right direction…first of all, our product on the ice, that’s where it is coming together, guys are learning what their jobs are and we’re learning where our production is going to come from every night."Goalie, Tim Thomas, on the team’s wins in Toronto
"Anytime you win two games back-to-back against the same team in their building, that’s a special feat. Obviously…we have to move on and win some more games now…we just have to keep rolling…We can’t be satisfied."Forward, Marc Savard, on the importance of moving forward
"It was a huge step that we have taken…especially on the road…[but] even coming into the second game versus Toronto we didn’t play a great first period and coming off a huge victory on Saturday against them, we still haven’t put that piece of the puzzle together -- how we have to individually prepare for games coming off wins. That’s when it seems we struggle the most. It’s part of the process and so far we’ve jumped many hurdles and that’s going to be one of the big ones."Forward, Mark Mowers, on keeping the Bruins momentum going
