by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

TORONTO -Entering Saturday night's game in Toronto, just 1 point separated the Bruins and Maple Leafs - ranked second and third, respectively - in the Atlantic Division standings. The talk leading up to the showdown was dominated by the likelihood of the teams meeting at some point in the postseason.

If their contest at the Air Canada Centre is any indication, it has the potential to be one heck of a series.

TORONTO - After missing the last nine games with an upper-body injury, Kevan Miller will be thrust back into the action on Saturday night for the Bruins' crucial Atlantic Division showdown with the Maple Leafs.

Miller will slide into his usual spot alongside Matt Grzelcyk on Boston's third pairing. Adam McQuaid will be the health scratch.

"I'm just excited to get back in," Miller said following the morning skate at Air Canada Centre. "The guys have been playing really well and just trying to continue to contribute and keep things simple and play my game.

"The coaches do a great job of getting guys into shape and making sure guys are ready to go. I've had a number of practices and feel pretty good. Just trying to keep things simple and contribute."

Fourth Line Lights Spark on Bruins Comeback

Acciari's early third-period goal propelled Boston to 3-2 win over Oilers

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

EDMONTON, Alberta - The frustration had been building a bit for the Bruins during their swing through Western Canada. Despite splitting the first two games of the trip, Boston was clearly snake bitten, potting just three goals on 77 shots - and a handful of clankers off iron.

That trend continued on Tuesday night, as the Bruins peppered Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot with 31 shots through two periods - while hitting two more posts - and had nothing to show for it.

It appeared that Boston was on its way to yet another maddening finish. But sometimes all you need is a bounce - and a little bit of grit.

And that's exactly what the Bruins got.

DeBrusk Excited to Play in Hometown

Rookie will suit up for first game in Edmonton as an NHLer

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

EDMONTON, Alberta - Jake DeBrusk was just nine years old when the Oilers surged to the Stanley Cup Final in the spring of 2006. But the Edmonton native remembers well watching his favorite team fall a game short of championship lore.

"I was here for a couple tough years, but I was also here for their Cup run," DeBrusk recalled. "My favorite player was Ryan Smyth. I think that he was just the ultimate Oiler. There was a game in the playoffs that he got stitches and was bleeding and came back and scored in overtime.

"I remember going to those games, one against Detroit when they won in Game 6. [Smith], [Ales] Hemsky, [Sergei] Samsonov. I remember that whole team."

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

CALGARY, Alberta - Perhaps the biggest reason for the Bruins' success this season has been the balanced contributions the team has received from throughout the lineup. From its fourth line, to its five rookies, to its championship-tested core, everyone has chipped in at crucial moments.

But sometimes a team needs to lean on its leaders, particularly after the way things turned out in Vancouver on Saturday night.

Need to Know: Bruins vs. Flames

Boston looking to shore things up defensively

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins know their defensive effort has slipped a bit over the last two games, allowing seven goals and a boatload of breakaways and odd-man rushes. It has been an uncharacteristic dip for the league's stingiest team.

"We spoke about it in here, you never want to get complacent, that's kind of the big thing for us," said Charlie McAvoy. "We want to play hard every night, we don't want to let complacency slip into our game. A little bit of that was evident against Buffalo, even a little bit against New Jersey. We want to get back to the way we play when we're at our best."
