by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - When Bruce Cassidy took over behind the Bruins bench last February, 13 long years had passed since he was last at the helm of a National Hockey League club.

In the time between his year-plus stint with the Washington Capitals and his ascension to head coach of the Black & Gold - which included eight years with Providence - Cassidy admits to plenty of personal and professional growth.

Stretching Them Thin

Bruins focused on limiting Leafs' opportunities through the neutral zone

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TORONTO - Since he took over last February, Bruce Cassidy has encouraged his defensemen to get involved offensively, whether it be with a pinch in the attacking end or joining the rush through the neutral zone.

The Bruins have heeded that mantra on more than one occasion during the first three games of their opening-round series with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In Game 2, Kevan Miller trickled down into the corner and banked one in off of Leafs netminder Frederick Andersen, while Zdeno Chara crept in from the point in Game 3 and picked the top corner over Andersen's right shoulder.

Backes, Nash Provide A Veteran Edge

Wingers' wealth of postseason experience showed in Game 1

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins have seven players on their roster that have won a Stanley Cup. They also boast a roster that included six rookies - four of whom are experiencing the postseason for the first time.

But the deepest group on the Black & Gold's roster includes those that fall in the middle of those two categories - a cluster consisting of young and old, unproven, and experienced, skilled and tenacious.

And perhaps the two players headlining that collection are David Backes and Rick Nash, a pair of veteran wingers that provide a combination of size, grit, scoring touch, and the willingness to mix it up when such situations arise.

BOSTON - Charlie McAvoy is still classified as a rookie as he enters these Stanley Cup Playoffs. But the blue liner boasts something that the majority of his fellow first-year Bruins do not as they prepare to kick off the postseason with a first-round showdown against Toronto.

A six-game cameo - the first six games of his NHL career - during last spring's opening round series with Ottawa provided the 20-year-old with a wealth of experience and expectations that have prepared him for his second go-around on the game's grandest stage.

B's Camaraderie Has Become A Calling Card

Boston's brotherhood was on full display in win over Tampa

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Tuukka Rask had had just about enough.

When Tampa Bay forward Cory Conacher barreled into the Bruins net midway through the second period, the backstop decided to take matters into his own hands - quite literally.

Rask stormed out of his crease and whacked away with a couple of swats at Conacher as chaos began to ensue around him. It was an unusual sight for the 31-year-old netminder, but one he felt was necessary to make a statement.
