Until next year, Merlot Line. 



Bruins coach Claude Julien was tight-lipped when it came to who might enter the lineup in light of Gregory Campbell’s season-ending broken leg. The team will have to choose between Kaspars Daugavins, Jordan Caron, Carl Soderberg and Jay Pandolfo, but Julien declined to share the team’s intentions.

Gregory Campbell is officially done for the playoffs.

Just 12 hours after Campbell blocked a slap shot from Evgeni Malkin during a Bruins penalty kill, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced that Campbell will miss the remainder of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs due to a broken right fibula.

Following Wednesday’s 2-1 overtime victory over the Penguins, Bruins forward Shawn Thornton checked in with Dennis & Callahan on Thursday morning to offer his thoughts on the instant classic that ended with Patrice Bergeron‘s goal in double overtime.

Bruins legend Bobby Orr joined Dennis & Callahan on Thursday after watching Wednesday night’s thrilling Game 3 at TD Garden, a 2-1 double-overtime victory for the Bruins over the Penguins.

If the Bruins had to give a 48-game pitch as to why you should watch them, root for them, believe in them, etc., it probably would be underwhelming.

If they had to give a 95-minute, 19-second pitch, that’s a different story.



It was not the result the Penguins desperately needed, but after losing their third straight to the Bruins to fall into an 0-3 hole, coach Dan Bylsma sees hope.

Of all the great performances Tuukka Rask has had in these 2013 playoffs, Wednesday night was certainly the most grueling.

He stopped 53 shots in 95 minutes and 19 seconds, allowing only a Chris Kunitz goal in the second period as the Bruins prevailed, 2-1, in double-overtime in Game 3 of the Eastern finals at TD Garden.

According to Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston, Bruins center Gregory Campbell is done for the season after breaking his leg blocking a shot from Evgeni Malkin in the second period of Boston’s Game 3 win over the Penguins.

The Bruins fended off a much improved Penguins effort Wednesday night at TD Garden, getting a 2-1 double overtime win thanks to Patrice Bergeron’s latest game-winner and taking a 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference finals.
