Local fans like Bruins' chances in playoffs


Jen LeColst didn’t come from a sports family, but certainly married into one. She’s grown to love going to games with Nick — they estimate using their season tickets for about 20 regular season games — and, like her husband, thinks the Bruins will beat Detroit in six games.

Her brother-in-law Andy, the former head hockey coach at Salve Regina (R.I.) University, figures that the Bruins are built for the playoffs and can withstand any challenge.

“The worry, to me, is if you lose one of your top centers. Any extended period of time with (Patrice) Bergeron or (David) Krejci could be trouble,” he said. “But I think Tuukka could really do well in these playoffs and carry them a long way.”
