Need to Know: Round 2 | Bruins-Blue Jackets

Boston and Columbus to face off in postseason for first time

The 2019 Boston Bruins Playoffs are presented by Beth Israel Lahey Health

BOSTON - It is not the second-round matchup that most envisioned when this Stanley Cup Playoffs commenced two weeks ago. But for the first time in their histories, the Bruins and Columbus Blue Jackets will meet in the postseason.

Boston enters fresh off yet another seven-game thriller over the Toronto Maple Leafs, while Columbus comes into the series with nearly 10 days of rest after pulling off one of the most shocking upsets in NHL history.

The Blue Jackets swept the Tampa Bay Lightning - who tied the league's regular-season win record with 62 - out of the first round with a dominating performance that few, if any, saw coming.

Ever Even-Keel Rask Shines Bright In First Round Clincher

Stands out as the Bruins 'best player' in the 5-1 win over the Maple Leafs

by Michael Tolvo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Put it behind you. Stay even keel. Don't get too high, don't get too low.

All are common refrains that you may have heard from Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask. You may have heard them following the first game of the preseason or the last contest of the postseason. Had you not known the stakes of Tuesday night's must-win Game 7 tilt against the division rival Toronto Maple Leafs, Rask's postgame comments might be no more or less significant than any of his 51 previous starts this season (regular season and playoffs included).

"Just staying even keel and preparing myself the right way, and today was no different," Rask said of his mindset going into the fifth Game 7 of his career. "It just happened to be that I had to make a couple more saves than maybe some other games but that's what I'm there for anyways."

Pats, Celtics Take in Game 7

Edelman waves flag, Brady tweets, C's bond as B's advance to second round

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - As Boston's golden era of sports success rolls on, it seems that the brotherhood between the city's teams is only getting stronger.

The support that the Bruins, Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots have shown for each other grows with each passing year - and championship, of which there have been a combined 12 since 2002.

That was evident on Tuesday night during the Black & Gold's thrilling Game 7 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden.

Kuraly Has Flare for the Dramatic

Forward (goal, assist) leads strong effort from bottom six as Bruins advance to second round with Game 7 win over Toronto

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Sean Kuraly knows that goal scoring is not necessarily his forte.

"They don't usually go in for me," he quipped.

The third-year forward has suited up for 154 regular-season games in the NHL and has 14 goals to his name - including a career-high of eight during the 2018-19 campaign - or one every 11 contests.

Generally, Kuraly is more focused on delivering his patented blend of speed, energy, and grit to set the tone for Boston's pack of more prolific scorers like Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, and Jake DeBrusk.

Need to Know: Game 7 | Bruins at Maple Leafs

Studnicka Shines in P-Bruins Victory

Forward picks up goal, assist in Providence's Game 2 win over Charlotte

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BostonBruins.com - Bruins forward prospect Jack Studnicka, fresh off a 36-goal season in the OHL, wasted little time making an impact on his new team, as the 20-year-old notched a goal and an assist in the P-Bruins 4-2 victory over the Charlotte Checkers in Game 2 of their best-of-five first-round series on Sunday afternoon.

Studnicka, playing in his second game with Providence, picked up his first goal late in the opening period to give the P-Bruins a 2-0 advantage. The 2017 second-round pick, who had a game-high six shots on goal, took a feed from Lee Stempniak at the Charlotte blue line and ripped home a wrister from the top of the right-wing circle.

It All Comes Down to This - Again

For third time in seven seasons, Bruins-Maple Leafs heads to seventh game

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - At this point, there really is no reason to expect anything different.

As Patrice Bergeron aptly pointed out on Monday afternoon, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins finished as the seventh- and third-best teams, respectively, in the National Hockey League this season.

The clubs were careening toward a first-round matchup for the majority of the season's second half. And once the showdown became official during the final week of March, there weren't many who expected anything less than a lengthy best-of-seven series between two evenly matched divisions rivals.

Well, here we are.

Marchand Pots Two as Bruins Force Game 7

Winger leads way as Boston bears down for 4-2 victory in Toronto

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TORONTO - The Bruins knew they were in for a fight on Sunday afternoon.

If their season was to live on another day, their best effort of the series was required - which is certainly no easy task with everything on the line in enemy territory.

Fortunately, the Bruins had Brad Marchand on their side of the ring in Game 6.

Marchand pulled no punches with the Bruins on the brink, notching two goals and an assist to lead Boston to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena.
