Bruins confident about comeback in Game 2 @NHLdotcom

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins are painfully aware of how teams can come back in the NHL playoffs.

They blew a 3-0 lead in games and a 3-0 lead in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers last year. So their loss to the Montreal Canadiens in the postseason opener this year is just a minor obstacle.

Boston lost 2-0 on Thursday night and tries to even the best-of-seven series at home on Saturday night.

The Bruins lost the first game of last year's opening series at home 2-1 to Buffalo then won the next three and eliminated the Sabres in six games. And they didn't play that badly Thursday night. They outshot the Canadiens 31-20 but got little traffic in front of the net, allowing goalie Carey Price to see the puck well.
