Bruins forward Mark Recchi has played in 164 playoff games entering this week's Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Canadiens. While he now skates for Boston, he spent three-plus seasons in Montreal in the 90s. Really, no one knows what more to expect from this upcoming series than Recchi.

Recchi spoke with NESN's Naoko Funayama on Tuesday, and he talked about what he and his teammates can expect when the puck drops on Thursday night at TD Garden.

"We all know this is a great rivalry, and it's an exciting time for all the fans, but we have to maintain our focus and kind of get in a bubble and worry about what he have to do to play well," he said. "If we do that, we'll be fine."
