(NECN) – Comcast SportsNet’s Kevin Walsh talks Boston Bruins. They have a huge game Friday night.

Walsh says Bruins are actually not that good in close-out games when it’s not a game 7. He says they are actually 4-7 in those situations.

Walsh does say they have experience on their side with 16 guys on their team having won the Stanley Cup. He also points out Toronto hasn’t been in the playoffs as a team in nine years.

Walsh thinks Bruins win and close it out. He says even if they don’t, they’ll eventually win the series.

He says it would be good if they win Friday night because everybody needs rest.

“If you can, close it out in 5, get it done, get some rest because the next round is going to be brutal. It doesn’t get any easier from here on out."
