Daniel Paille rises to occasion for Bruins — again

New linemate Chris Kelly said that winger Daniel Paille is a bit idiosyncratic. He’s always fixing, fidgeting, and adjusting his equipment, tying a skate or tugging at a glove.

Paille can give it the full Nomar Garciaparra obsessive-compulsive routine before each shift if he keeps playing like this. What Paille, the fourth-line grinder-turned-sniper, has fixed is the Bruins’ flagging third. He has also adjusted the view of the Stanley Cup Final, as the Bruins have gone from down, 1-0, in the series to on top, 2-1, after Paille scored the game-winner for the second straight game.
