Bruins need their stars to step up

MONTREAL — The Bruins needed nearly half of Tuesday night’s game in the Bell Centre, roughly 30 minutes on the game clock, to feel their legs. By that time, the Canadiens controlled a 2-0 lead (soon to be 3-0) and were all but guaranteed a 2-1 edge in the playoff series, the Bruins left scratching gloved hands across their helmets for answers.

Game 4 is back here in Cathedral Glorieux Thursday night, and the Bruins are still scratching.
