The Bruins pledge to bring a hard-hat approach to their power play.
“A big thing we talked about today that was kind of lacking the last two playoff years and all of last year was outworking the penalty killers. Not letting the penalty killers outwork our power play,” Lucic said. “The mentality has to be, ‘We’re going to go out there and we’re going to outwork teams.’ Not, ‘OK, let’s hope they don’t outwork us.’ It’s, ‘We’re going to go out there and do it.’ We’ve got to outnumber them when there are battles. We’ve got to make the pass while it’s there. We’ve got to make the shot while it’s there.”
