Picking up the slack was the rallying cry for the Bruins following a 3-2 come-from-behind win over the Nashville Predators .
There was good reason for the Bruins adopting that mantra. They found out this week that two of their star players would each be out 4-6 weeks with injuries.
Milan Lucic  is out following surgery on his broken index finger while Marc Savard  is healing following a diagnosis of a broken bone in his left foot.
So, someone had to pick up the slack. And it was Patrice Bergeron  and Steve Begin to the rescue on Wednesday night. For Begin it was his first goal in a Bruins uniform that proved to be the game-winner.
