Bruce Cassidy follows the media closely. He reads the newspapers and if a reporter writes something he disagrees with, he might even mention it in a press conference.
But in Tuesday’s media availability prior to Game 1 of the first round between the Bruins and the Hurricanes, Cassidy had no need for being called the underdog because of predictions.
“I don’t concern myself with predictions,” he said via Zoom. “We’ll be ready to play. We came in to this with a mindset that we’d built for Game 1.”
He also discussed what changes would be made to the lineup as the Bruins get set to begin their quest for the Cup in Game 1 Tuesday night.
