There is no data to display.

The Bruins have surprisingly dominated the favored Pittsburgh Penguins through the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, capped off by Monday's 6-1 beat down in Game 2 to take a 2-0 series lead with Game 3 in Boston Wednesday night. 

The B's have outscored the high-powered Penguins offense 9-1 through two games and even chased Pittsburgh goaltender Tomas Vokoun out of Monday's game in the first period. 

While there's no question the Bruins appear to be in control of the series, the B's did come in as the underdog. This begs the question, why have the Bruins been so dominant so far? Tony Amonte gave his explanation on Postgame Live. 

“[They're] just playing strong, team defense. That's the Bruins' M.O. That's what one them a Stanley Cup two years ago is playing strong team defense," Amonte said. "They've smothered the  Pittsburgh Penguins, especially through the neutral zone coming over the blue line...It just seems like the Bruins are never caught out of position.”
