BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Yes, Red Sox will try for a 3-1 ALCS lead in Houston tonight, but you should keep an eye on the Bruins, too. They've won their last four by a combined 22-6 margin!
The 4-1 B's have crushed the Sabres, Senators, Oilers, and Red Wings--those last three at home--and now they're headed on the road for four, starting in Calgary at 9:30 p.m.
Coach Bruce Cassidy said he's not concerned with the opposition.
"To be quite honest, we're focused on our team more than the opposition most nights, simply because there's always stuff to work on for us," Cassidy said.
Bruins will go to Edmonton, Vancouver, and Ottawa next, but there's no overlooking the Flames - especially a group led by former Boston College standout Johnny Gaudreau. The speedy winger leads his team with eight points.
Cassidy's squad is still shorthanded. Defenseman Torey Krug is recovering from a preseason ankle injury and he's not on the trip, but he's coming along.
"Progressing well, he may skate this week," Cassidy said of Krug. "If he gets on the ice at some point this week, that's always a step in the right direction. And then once he's on the ice, we'll probably give you a better idea of when the contact comes and so on."
Tuukka Rask will start tonight. He's struggled with a 4-0-7 goals-against-average and .881 save percentage.
