Bruce Cassidy Reveals His Biggest Spots Of Concern Heading Into Game 6.

The Boston Bruins are looking to close out the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight but they'll likely have to play an almost flawless game. 

The Blue Jackets will be fighting for their lives while on home ice so they might not go down too easy. 

To skate away with the win, head coach Bruce Cassidy says the team needs to drastically improve their play in the second period.

During Game 5, they were outshot 15-12 by Columbus with Rask making some big saves. 

"[Rask] kept us above water. I think it happened the other night in Columbus as well. He was good in that period when we weren't as good. In the third period, we started checking well again and were able to close the deal the way we've typically done it this year," said Bruce Cassidy. "That is an area of concern with our club – second periods.

"[We need to figure out] how to manage the puck better and put it in good spots so we can get fresh legs out there. Not lose two or three on the fore-check – two on the fore-check, one to a line change, all the sudden the odd-man rushes start happening. That's something we'll address again, but easier said than done to fix."
