PITTSBURGH -- It was a quick practice day for the Bruins with Brad Marchand, Johnny Boychuk and Dennis Seidenberg absent for maintenance days.
Everybody else skated for the Black and Gold to prepare for Monday's Game 2, knowing full well that they're not likely to see a repeat of the rough stuff from their Game 1 win.
"At the end of the day, the score is all that matters in the playoffs," said coach Claude Julien, "We got what we wanted, and that was a win."
The defensemen pairings and forward combos looked to be exactly the same as Game 1. Really, there is no reason to change anything after shutting on the Pens, 3-0.
The most noticeable detail in the B's dressing room was the bruises, gashes and stitches on Patrice Bergeron's face after his bloody clash with Evgeni Malkin. In a funny twist, the Bruins were taking headshot pictures after Sunday morning's practice . . . That ought to be a nice hockey mug shot for No. 37.
