Bruins face must win in Boston

June 24, 2013 19:11:05 UK

The argument can be made that the Boston Bruins have been the best side in the Stanley Cup playoffs this season, playing at a more consistent high level night in and night out.

Blessed with an excellent defense and the beneficiary of the hottest netminder in the post season, Tuukka Rask, it is therefore something of a surprise that Boston faces a must win Game Six at the TD Garden on Monday evening against the Chicago Blackhawks.

And strangely so as the Blackhawks have rarely, if ever, in the playoffs hit their top gear. With Jonathan Toews a virtual no-show for most of the post-season, Chicago has found a way to keep winning seeing off the respective challenges of the Minnesota Wild, Detroit Red Wings and defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.

Saturday at the United Center in Chicago the Blackhawks picked up their second straight with a 3-1 in Game Five. Patrick Kane scored twice for the hosts and the winger has excelled in the past two contests after a so-so first three games in the series. Boston's Center Patrice Bergeron was not at the morning skate on Monday after ending up in hospital during Game Five and while listed as day-to-day, such a status seems a somewhat optimistic outlook even if Bruins head coach Claude Julien has suggested that Bergeron will play. On the opposite side of the ice Toews, who was also injured in Game Five, did skate for the Blackhawks in the morning skate and appears to be ready to start for Chicago.

The Bruins are 3.65 to win the series while the Blackhawks are 1.30.
