Boston Bruins Notes

-The Game 1 lineup for the Boston Bruins is very much up in the air. A stomach bug has been roaring through the team and the status of captain Patrice Bergeron and goalies Linus Ullmark, and Jeremy Swayman are very much up in the air.

-A a result of the uncertainty for the Bruins between the pipes, goalie Brandon Bussi was recalled from Providence (AHL), on an emergency basis Monday morning. Bussi was 22-5-4 with a 2.40 goals against average and a .924 save percentage for the Providence Bruins this season.

-Bruins veteran center David Krejci has been cleared to play and will be in the lineup for Game 1.

Florida Panthers Notes

-Journeyman goalie Alex Lyon has his Florida Panthers teammates on his back and was a major reason the Florida Panthers made it into the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Lyon went 6-1-1 with a a 1.87 GAA and a .943 save percentage and down the stretch.

-Matthew Tkachuk has had a brilliant campaign in his first season playing for the Panthers and is a likely Hart Trophy candidate. Tkachuk finished the season with 40 goals and 69 assists in 79 games.

-Former UMass-Amherst defenseman Brandon Montour had a breakout season with a career high in goals (16), assists (57) and in points with 70.
