But the Bruins have won in the past without him.

They did it against Vancouver after he suffered a season-ending concussion in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals, when they started their rally to win the championship.

Now the Bruins are trying to pick themselves up again, their resilience getting another test after an electrifying opener against Chicago.

"I think playoffs, you need to shake it off win or lose," Patrice Bergeron said. "That's something we've always said is to be in the moment, the task at hand. It's going to be no different in Game 2. Put the first game behind you and you worry about that Game 2."

TV RATINGS: NBC's broadcast averaged 6.358 million viewers, the most to watch a Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals since Detroit and Philadelphia drew 9,000 more on FOX in 1997.

It marked an increase of 119 percent compared to the Stanley Cup finals series opener last year with the Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils.

NBC is averaging more than three million viewers during the playoffs, an increase of 38 percent compared to last year. NBC and the NBC Sports Network are combining to average 1.191 million viewers for each game, an increase of 7 percent vs. last year.
