BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Bruins lost Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final in overtime and, as a result, lost home-ice advantage.
The series shifts to St. Louis for Game 3 Saturday, but coach Bruce Cassidy, Brandon Carlo, and Brad Marchand aren't intimidated taking their show on the road.
"They'll be good," Cassidy said. "They're going home, their fans will be behind them just like ours are. We went into a hostile environment in Carolina, very loud building. Won a couple there, went into Columbus, won a couple, Toronto. We've got a veteran group, they'll bounce back, they'll be ready to go. This time of year, the venue, I'm sure it'll help St. Louis, but from our point of view, we'll play wherever they tell us to, and we just gotta play better."
"Can't really be in much of a bigger test than this," Carlo said. "They're a good team, so are we, and it's gonna be a great battle throughout the rest of the series. We're all working hard out there and doing our best."
"We're tied, best of five series," Marchand said. "I think if you told us that at the start of the year that we'd be 1-1 in the finals, I'd take that every time, so, on to the next one."
The B's are 6-2 outside Boston these playoffs. They've outscored the Maple Leafs, Blue Jackets, and Hurricanes by a combined 26-13, and converted a whopping 42 percent of their power play chances.
