Julien: Tim Thomas 'is in the zone'

Bruins coach Claude Julien has no doubt that his goaltender is capable of picking up where he left off when the Eastern Conference finals begin Saturday night at TD Garden. Thomas enters the series with a 2.03 goals against, just .02 behind Tampa Bay's Dwayne Roloson for best among all goaltenders in these Stanley Cup playoffs. 

"I think Timmy right now is in the zone, like he's very, very focused," Julien said following Friday's practice at TD Garden. "He's also calm. Watching him today in practice, he's very confident and that's what it's all about when it comes to goaltending. When a guy is feeling good about his game and confident, he can do almost anything, and Tim is there right now."

Thomas will face three of the eight top scorers in the playoffs in Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Steve Downie when the Lightning visit for Game 1 Saturday night. Tampa Bay arrived in Boston Friday for the start of the series,...

Julien: No update on Bergeron
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien has been asked about the status of Patrice Bergeron ever since the 25-year-old went down with a concussion in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, and he has yet to offer any update aside from that Bergeron is feeling better. Friday was no different, though Julien did share a laugh with the media.

"Well I think, I don’t know if you guys share a conference before I get here and say who’s asking the question today, but I am getting that question asked everyday," Julien said. "I think he’s improving -- he really is improving. We’re optimistic about him. As Peter [Chiarelli] said, we knew he was going to miss the start of the series and how much he is going to miss, I can’t tell you right now. But he is on the right track and we’re staying positive. 

"Again, I say that every day. I’m not going to say much more because when it comes to concussions you...

Marchand on M&M: Seguin looks strong

Bruins winger Brad Marchand joined the Mut & Merloni show Friday afternoon, as the B's prepare for Saturday night's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals vs. the Lightning.

Both the Bruins and Lightning swept their previous series and have been waiting for more than a week to start this series. Marchand acknowledged the important of coming out strong.

"We just have to make sure that we have a big start to the game," he said. We're starting at home and we want to use our fans to our advantage, kind of get them into the game early. Both teams are going to be rusty, we've had a while off. But we have to make sure we come out hard."

Marchand is known for his aggressive, scrappy style. He said he's always played that way. "I don't know why. It just seemed to get me more in the game," he said. "It was something that just kind of came out as I was playing. It was always a fun role to play. I know if I was...

Rivers, Celtics have 5-year deal

Celtics president Danny Ainge said that the team and coach Doc Rivers have come to an agreement on a five-year contract. Yahoo! Sports reports the deal is worth $35 million.

"We wanted him for five years and he wanted to stay for five years," Ainge said. "I think Doc is the best coach in the league, so I think it's great for us."

Rivers indicated it was likely he would return to the Celtics after Wednesday's season-ending loss to the Heat. "I'm leaning heavily [toward] coming back," he said. "I haven't made that decision, but I can tell you I probably will. I've kind of come to that over the last couple of weeks."

Rivers has coached the Celtics for seven seasons, posting a regular-season record of 336-238 and a playoff mark of 46-34. He led the C's to the 2008 NBA championship.
