The defending Stanley Cup Champion Bruins will hope to have an easier time in Saturday's Game 2 than they did in their 1-0 overtime victory over Washington.

Boston's attempt at title defense got off to a difficult - if thrilling - start with a 1-0 victory over the Capitals. It was 61 minutes before Chris Kelly finally broke a scoreless deadlock in overtime. The goal spoiled a brilliant performance from relatively unknown goalie Braden Holtby, who was forced into action after injuries to Washington's top two goalies, Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth. The Stanley Cup Champions will take the result, but hope Saturday's matchup will be a little bit smoother.

The rookie goalkeeper will be back in net Saturday - although Neuvirth skated with the team on Friday, there's no timetable on his return - and the Caps hope he can repeat his effort, although with better results as they try to even up the series. The Bruins will likely have David Krejci back after a giant pane of glass fell on his head in postgame celebrations. (There's really no good way to put that.)

Here's the info on Saturday afternoon's Game 2:
