The Boston Bruins head into the Eastern Conference Finals with an unfamiliar role. For the first time since the Stanley Cup FInals in 2011, the Bruins are the underdogs in a series.

Much like in 2011 when the Bruins took on the Vancouver Canucks, pundits aren't giving the Bruins much of a chance against the high-powered offense of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins have been dominant thus far in the postseason, and CSNNE Bruins Insider Joe Haggerty says the Bruins will need to bring the same elements to their game that helped them upset that Canucks team two years ago.

"You need to wear them down physically, discourage them from getting to the net and doing the things they need to do to score, and hope your goaltender stands on his head," Haggerty said.
