BOSTON (WHDH)– Before they hit the road, the Bruins hit each other. Trying to clean up a multitude of mistakes that cost them game 4.
"Well, I think everything is fixable, I think that we all realize that we can be better than we were last game, and that's not just defensively, but all over the ice," said Zdeno Chara.
“Yeah, those were just mental mistakes, mostly – it's nothing crazy we have to fix; just be mentally sharper, and alert, and try to clean the bodies in front of the net, and be better at that," said Tuukka Rask.
Tuukka Rask, so tuned in, that he didn't even catch a potential lineup change. Swedish import Carl Soderberg, skated on the 4th line.
"Oh, he was? I didn't notice. I was sleeping throughout the practice. I didn't realize that, but good for him if he gets the chance, he's a good player," Rask said.
"I don't know if I’m playing yet, like, I haven't talked to him today, but that would be amazing, of course, to play a Stanley Cup game," Soderburg said.
Claude Julien isn't ready to reveal his game 5 lineup, but we know his message heading into it will be simple.
"I don't think you have to say much, if they don't know what's at stake by now, they're in trouble, so they know what they have to do, we've all been through it before, and so we're just looking forward to bouncing back and having a solid game,” Coach Julien said.
