Rightfully so, Coach Claude Julien was reluctant to discuss specifics on Thursday’s game plan. Noting that although similar to last years cup winning roster, this year is a different team with the same agenda. Some may remember that between games last season the Bruins took a small trip to Lake Placid, NY for a few days as a reprieve from Montreal. A trip that may or may not have had anything to do with the final success. As of now, no similar plan is in place when the team travels to Washington D.C. for games 3 and 4 next week.

Boston will take the ice again tomorrow morning at their practice facility in Wilmington, MA before facing off Thursday for Game 1.
