Canes center Eric Staal has nasty looking bruises on both arms, evidence of the physical play of the Bruins.
Tonight in Game 4, it may be even rougher. The Bruins, after sweeping the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs, trail 2-1 against the Canes. They've lost two in row and have been outplayed and outquicked in both.
"We all know what we have to do. We know what's at stake," Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara said today. "We all realize the situation we are in."
