Stay up to date on all the latest news, notes and numbers

by Boston Bruins @NHLBruins / Boston Bruins

STAT OF THE WEEK: Entering Game 2 on Saturday, the Bruins vs. Maple Leafs all-time playoff record stands tied at 38 wins apiece (38-38-1). The two teams tied Game 2 of the 1951 semifinal series due to a former Toronto statute that did not permit sporting events to extend past 11:45 p.m. The Bruins went on to win that series.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Sun's shining, first day of the Masters, playoff hockey, can't beat this time of the year."- Head Coach Bruce Cassidy on waking up on the first gameday of playoffs.

 

TWEET OF THE WEEK (WEEK 32): @GlobeKPD (Kevin Paul Dupont, Boston Globe): "Before playoff craziness begin, just a word of thanks to all followers here, old and new, happy and sad, and the angry few (but strong). Enjoy the Cup run."

HONORABLE MENTIONS: @_TyAnderson (Ty Anderson, 95.8 The Sports Hub): "A Clifton-Acciari corner duo: Enough to make you wanna stay home."
