Boston Going Home Hungry

Last nights overtime loss was a painful way to end the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals, but the Bruins are confident that this series is far from over.
All year they have proved that they have the ability to bounce back, as they showed in the Montreal and Tampa Bay series. They won the series against the Canadiens in 7 games, after being down 2-0, and they beat the Lightning despite of losing their first game as well.

"You just stick with it," said Bruins Andrew Ference. "They are tight games and will continue to be tight games. You just have to dig deep and get on the right side of it next time."

Throughout the series we've seen Tim Thomas make spectacular saves and help keep the games close, but a lot of the goals scored on him have been by players taking advantage of his aggressive play-style. Last nights OT winner is one example, where Burrows faked the shot to pull Thomas out of his crease, then wrap it around the net.

"Losing stinks no matter what. So it's not something that you want to do, but we've got to move forward," said Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas.

Boston is looking to win both games at home, and revive their chances of winning the Cup.
