BRUINS NOTEBOOK

Bruins dispel idea that they’re slow

So much of the talk before the Bruins faced the Red Wings was about the speed of Detroit, about the problems that would pose for Boston. And then the Bruins dispatched the Wings in five games.

The Bruins will face another skilled, speedy team in the Canadiens in the second round, and they are again fighting the suggestion that they can’t keep up. It was something that coach Claude Julien took issue with in the first round, and it’s something that rankles other members of the Bruins, as well.
