If we worry about ourselves and do the job, we shouldn’t worry about anybody else. We’ve got find a way to get that energy, that effort. We know it’s a tough schedule, but no one feels sorry for us said by Patrice Bergeron. The Bruins know that this is a huge game for them, and win tonight will put them 4 points head of the 9th place Atlanta Thrashers who are fighting for a playoff spot as well.
