BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Bruins waxed the Lightning to open their conference semifinals series Saturday in Tampa, but B's coach Bruce Cassidy said it wasn't as easy as it looked.
"Listen, you look at a 6-2 game and you think it's one-sided--clearly, it wasn't," Cassidy said. "We finished well, got some timely saves, some timely goals. In between, they got the puck a lot."
One of the keys--Boston thrived in transition.
In fact, Patrice Bergeron said that's been a focus all year.
"I think we've made some adjustments this year to try to be better in our transition game, and maybe create more offense that way," he said.
Bergeron scored twice in the win, and his line totaled 11 points.
Game 2 is tonight at 7 p.m. Listen to more from Cassidy and Bergeron below.
