Bruins Daily: Game 6 Start Time Set; Can McAvoy Be Chelios?



Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins now know when the next chapter in a potential story no other Bruins team has written in its 100-year history will be.

The Boston Bruins were down 3-1 in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup Playoffs series 25 times before they found themselves in that deficit this past Sunday night. They have forced a Game 7 twice before, but they have never come back to win the series. The Bruins cut their current series deficit to the Florida Panthers down to 3-2 with a 2-1 win in Game 5 in Florida on Tuesday night, and they now know when they will be able to have the chance to tie the series at three games a piece.

The NHL announced late Wednesday night that the Bruins will host the Panthers in Game 6 at 7 p.m. ET on Friday night at TD Garden. Can they force a Game 7 back in Sunrise, Florida, on Sunday?

Can McAvoy be a Chelios? That’s funny. He’s over paid and over rated. Minus player in playoffs this season and in his career. Second highest paid Bruin and 4th highest paid defenseman in the NHL. The only statistical category in which he finished in the top 10 was average time on ice. He’s been an all star once. He’s worth about half of what he’s getting paid. He’s not going to be a Chelios.
