I’m going to start off quoting this directly from the Bruins home page.

BOSTON, MA – The Boston Bruins announced today, April 16, that the team will continue to release episodes of “Behind the B” presented by Alex and Ani throughout the team’s 2014 Stanley Cup playoff run. There will be one episode for each round the Bruins play in with air dates and times on NESN confirmed once the respective series concludes. Each episode will be narrated by actor and Worcester, MA native Denis Leary.”

On Behind the B, a young lady had a special wish come true. When young Maddie had her moment of fame with Tuukka Rask, he went out of his way to make sure the equipment was as spot-on a match as possible. They were able to do everything but the helmet. Well, Tuukka Rask went the extra mile for the fan and commissioned his helmet artist to create an exact replica (with a few specific personal touches) of our favorite Finnish wall’s helmet. It’s a great ending to the story, and another feather in the cap for Rask and the Bruins. (NESN)

Rotoworld had their staff break down their selections on who they believed would win in the first round. The Boston Bruins were heavily favored by their staff (save for one misguided soul). Take a look at their staff’s selections and see how they match up with yours. (Rotoworld)

The squad at Yahoo delivered their predictions for award season, and surprisingly at least one Bruin made their list. Most of us and they agree that Patrice Bergeron should go home with the Selke.  Call me a homer if you will, but Zdeno Chara is strong in the running for the Norris, and Tuukka Rask should take home the Vezina as well. Take a look at their choices and feel free to send them your opinions. (Yahoo)
