Going to be going up to Philadelphia to cover Game 4 of the Bruins-Flyers series for New England Hockey Journal.
David Krejci is a huge loss, which goes without saying. His hockey sense and pure puck skills will be sorely missed by a team that has spent much of the year struggling to find the back of the net (at least before the playoffs began, that is).
It's going to be a real struggle for the B's to close them out, but anything is possible with Tuukka Rask in net. He's deserving of all the praise coming his way...there isn't much I can say on top of what has been put out on him already.
When you factor in the impact that Rask, Phil Kessel and Milan Lucic have already made on Boston's fortunes, plus the potential for Yuri Alexandrov, Brad Marchand and Andrew Bodnarchuk to do something in the not-too-distant future, that 2006 draft might be one of the best in history.
