Recchi on M&M: Seguin can make impact

In an interview on the Mut & Merloni Show, Bruins winger Mark Recchi suggested that it was premature to panic about his team's Game 1 loss to the Canadiens in the best-of-seven playoff series. The 43-year-old cited his experience in a run with the Hurricanes to a Stanley Cup in 2006, when Carolina feel behind Montreal by losing the first two games of the first round before roaring back to win the title.

"The bottom line is, we bounced back all year from stuff like this, and we will again," said Recchi. "We've rebounded from some hard losses, tough losses, bad losses. It's the character of our team."

Recchi drew upon his experience with Carolina in response to another question, chiefly whether rookie Tyler Seguin (a healthy scratch in Game 1) could make an impact in this series, or whether the idea of competing at this level and in this environment -- a playoff series in Montreal -- would be too much for the 19-year-old to...

Thornton: 'It's a long series'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins held practice Friday, a day after dropping the opener in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals to the Canadiens. Though the team was unable to get a puck past Habs netminder Carey Price in the 2-0 loss, the players expressed little concern over falling behind. 

"It's fine. We're good. It's one game," forward Shawn Thornton said. "We're aware that it's a long series, and we know we can be better, so we're going to be better tomorrow."

Both of the Canadiens' goals were scored by Brian Gionta following Bruins turnovers. Gionta's first-period tally was set up by Scott Gomez after Tomas Kaberle put too much on a reverse, while Gionta's third-period goal came following a Milan Lucic turnover in the Bruins' zone.  

"The game's not perfect. There's going to be turnovers every now and again," Thornton said. "You try and limit them as much as possible, but when they happen, you hope...

P.J. Stock on D&C: B's need to get physical

Former Bruins enforcer and CBC hockey analyst P.J. Stock, in an interview on the Dennis & Callahan Show, said that the Bruins need to become more physical if they hope to recover from their Game 1 setback at the hands of the Canadiens. Stock suggested that the Bruins adapted to Montreal's less-physical style of play, rather than taking the initiative and disrupting the Habs.

“The Canadiens are not a physical team, so it’s very easy to get out of a physical game. ‘They’re not going to hit me, so I’m not going to hit them. I’m going to start playing their game,’” Stock said. “I think the Bruins tried to play their game last night instead of getting the puck deep and hitting bodies.”

Stock suggested that Milan Lucic needs to play a pivotal role as a presence in the series, and he also suggested that the Bruins have to be more physical around the Montreal net in order to make goalie Carey...
