Bruins ready for a matinee

TAMPA — The last time the Bruins played a day game, they took a 7-3 contest in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the first step of sweeping the Flyers. They will have their earliest start of the postseason with Saturday’s 1:30 Game 4 vs. the Lightning.

“I think we’re glad to get an earlier game,” forward Daniel Paille [1] said Saturday at St. Pete Times Forum. “We’ve played the late games, so we’re happy to get the game started. I know we’re all anxious. We just want to play, and to get our afternoon games again is great to see.”

The Bruins have won eight of their last nine games and are hoping that nothing can disrupt their run. They don’t feel a matinee should be an issue.

“You’ve just got to make sure you go out there for the warmup and get your legs underneath you,” defenseman Johnny Boychuk [2] said. “That’s more or less what it’s all about.”
