Head coach Ben Barr said his team needs to control the pace of the game with a high effort style.

“They’re extremely skilled. If we want to go up and down the ice with them and look for breakaways and 2 on 1′s, it’s going to be a long weekend. If we go and play an honest, compete effort attitude game, we’ll be fine. We’ll give ourselves a chance to win,” said Barr.

He added that the team’s depth needs to show up to compete on both Friday and Saturday nights. Both games in Boston start at 7 p.m.
