Canucks' Raymond taken to hospital

Vancouver left winger Mason Raymond was transported to a Boston-area hospital after an awkward, early first-period collision in the Bruins zone with Johnny Boychuk. 

Just 20 seconds into the opening period, Raymond was bent over with his back to the cornerboards to the right of Tim Thomas when Boychuk skated into him, pinning him to the ice. In 24 playoff games this year, Raymond had two goals and six assists. 

Raymond remained on the ice for several minutes until he was helped off the ice by teammates Ryan Kesler and Chris Higgins. For more, visit the Bruins team page at weei.com/bruins and the Big Bad Blog

Olczyk on M&M: B's should 'find a way'

NBC and Versus NHL analyst Eddie Olczyk made an appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Monday to talk about the Stanley Cup finals.

The home team has won all five games in this series, and Olczyk indicated he expects that trend to continue Monday night in Game 6.

"I've already got my travel [to Vancouver] booked," he said "So, for what that's worth, I believe that the Bruins will have a large game tonight. I think the crowd will have a major impact on this game. I think the first goal is very crucial, but I think the Bruins will find a way and I think home ice will stay the course and there will be a Game 7 for all the marbles on Wednesday night back in Vancouver."

There has been a lot of talk about which team will be more physical. Olczyk said another key is the play in the neutral zone.

"I think the team that has had the greatest success in this series and has really dictated is when they've controlled the...

Amonte on M&M: Canucks not well-liked

CSNNE Bruins analyst Tony Amonte spoke with the Mut & Merloni show Monday morning.

Amonte said the key to the Bruins winning Game 6 Monday night is to “ride [Zdeno] Chara and [Dennis] Seidenberg.”

“I think that’s what they’ve done at home is been able to ride those two defensemen, their top D pair,” Amonte said. “They don’t get scored on much, and they help you out, create a lot of offense for the Bruins.”

Amonte said that a key to the offense is getting Tyler Seguin more minutes, especially on the power play.

“Seguin’s a guy that could break the game open,” he said.

“You have to play the odds. You have to put a guy out there you know is going to score a little bit more than another guy.”

While Gregory Campbell is good on faceoffs and penalty kills, Amonte said he lacks the puck control necessary to play in front of the net on power...
