Mike Halford and Jason Brough from ProHockeyTalk.com join Mike Giardi and Joe Haggerty for the Great American Hockey Show after Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Compete Level:

Haggerty hands out the Compete Level to the Bruins coaching staff, which is often criticized for being slow to make in-game adjustments. But in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Julien decided to pair Daniel Paille, Chris Kelly and Tyler Seguin together. The result? Two goals and a lightning in a bottle.

Halford says the Compete Level goes between the pipes to Tuukka Rask, who made 33 saves, including 18 in the first period.

"[The Bruins are] under siege [in the first period] and Rask knows it. He knows if he doesn't step up big, they're gonna go back to Boston down 2-0 in the series."

Twitter Time:

As usual, Haggs and Giardi took your questions on Twitter including one asking if Tuukka yells at his teammates in the locker room after ugly periods like the first in Game 2.

Haggerty reaches way back into the GAHS archives and actually remembers the Finnish word for back-check, and surmises that Rask probably just yells "takakarva."
